Golden Retriever belongs among smartest dogs and animals in general, but – let’s face it – the major reason for popularity of this breed lies in their look. They are just too cute!

And now for the star of this post – golden retriever in pictures:)

Let’s start with few scenes with the water. Goldens are descendants of Tweed Water Spaniels and have natural affinity to water.








Some golden retrievers adore water from very beginning and some need some incentive to get in. So if your dog doesn’t want to get in, especially if it’s still a pup, don’t force him. It’s much better to show him another dog (maybe older golden) who already enjoys swimming. Playing in water is one of best exercises for this breed, which is blessed with water resistant coat and not only needs lots of exercise, but has genetis predispositions for problems with joints as well.




Talking about sports … Goldens need intensive exercise on regular basis. Running, jumping and playing hide and seek in thousand variations should be on the daily menu.

Did we mention, they were developed as gun dogs? They are born hunters with excellent smelling and retrieving abilities.


Looking at them how playful they are, we often forget about their intelligence. Experts have pretty complicated system for classifying breeds according to their intellectual abilities and learning skills, but it’s pretty obvious only three breeds surpass goldens: Border Collie, Poodle and German Shepherd. None of them is so friendly and patient as golden retriever. If you are looking for a companion for hours and hours of play, look no further. Here you have it!
