12 Realities New Golden Retriever Owners Must Learn To Accept

The Golden Retriever's kindly expression says it all. This is one of the finest family dogs in the world: cheerful, demonstrative, trustworthy with everyone, and forgiving of any mistakes made by inexperienced owners.

Give this breed two brisk walks each day, play fetch games, and take him out for a good run once a week, and he is adaptable to almost any lifestyle.

Friendly with everyone (strangers, children, dogs, cats, smaller pets), his bark is welcoming rather than protective.

Eager to please and wonderfully responsive, he is nonetheless distracted by exciting sights and sounds, so you must be both patient and persistent.

If you are considering to own a golden retriever, or you’ve just become a new golden retriever owner, there are some realities you do need to fully accept.

  1. So true…especially #6…my Chloe was just fixated by the Cubs game. The one thing they forgot to mention is that losing a Golden is one of the hardest things you’ll ever experience.

  2. And these are the 12 realities I absolutely came to love & adore about our gorgeous adorable Golden boy! He passed away a few months ago & I dearly miss every single one of these- especially being covered in fur, getting slobbered on & his overall loving friendship & his goofiness..& being scared of cats!! Golden retrievers are one of the best dogs on the planet!!!!!! ✨❤️
