For many years, there was a legend that Golden Retrievers were descended from Russian sheepdogs bought from a circus. In fact, the breed was developed in Scotland, at the highland estate of Sir Dudley Majoribanks, later known as Lord Tweedmouth. Tweedmouth, like many gentry of his day, bred animals of all kinds, trying to perfect different breeds. Tweedmouth’s breeding records from 1835 to 1890 show what he was aiming for with the Golden: A talented retriever — Tweedmouth was an ardent waterfowl hunter with a superb nose, who would be more attentive to his human hunting companion than the setters and spaniels used at the time for retrieving. He also wanted the dog to be loyal and even-tempered in the home. Tweedmouth took Nous home to Scotland, and in 1868 and 1871, bred him to Belle, a Tweed Water Spaniel. Tweed Water Spaniels (now extinct) were known for being eager retrievers in the hunting field, and exceptionally calm and loyal in the home characteristics you’ll find in today’s Golden Retrievers. Nousand Belle’s descendants were bred with Wavy- and Flat-coated retrievers, another Tweed Water Spaniel, and a red setter. Tweedmouth kept mostly the yellow puppies to continue his breeding program, and gave others away to friends and relatives. Not surprisingly, Tweedmouth’s breed first attracted attention for their skills in the hunting field. One of the most well-known was Don of Gerwyn, a liver-coated descendent of one of Tweedmouth’s dogs, who won the International Gundog League trial in 1904. The Kennel Club in England officially recognized the Golden Retriever as a distinct breed in 1911. At that time, they were classified as “Retriever — Yellow or Golden.” In 1920, the breed name was officially changed to Golden Retriever. The American Kennel Club recognized the breed in 1932. Today, the Golden Retriever is the second most popular breed in the U.S. Males are 23 to 24 inches tall and weigh 65 to 75 pounds. Females are generally 21.5 to 22.5 inches tall and 55 to 65 pounds. Golden Retrievers usually reach their full height by one year of age, and their mature weight by two.

About Golden Retriever

It’s no surprise that the Golden Retriever is one of the top ten most popular dogs in the U.S. It’s all good with the Golden: he’s highly intelligent, sociable, beautiful, and loyal. He’s also lively. The Golden dog is slow to mature and retains the silly, playful personality of a puppy until three to four years of age, which can be both delightful and annoying. Many keep their puppyish traits into old age. Originally bred for the physically demanding job of retrieving ducks and other fowl for hunters, the Golden needs daily exercise: a walk or jog, free time in the yard, a run at the beach or lake (Goldens love water), or a game of fetch. And like other intelligent breeds who were bred to work, they need to have a job to do, such as retrieving the paper, waking up family members, or competing in dog sports. A tired Golden is a well-behaved Golden. As well as giving your Golden Retriever physical and mental exercise, you should also be prepared to include him in your family activities. The Golden Retriever is a family dog, and he needs to be with his “pack.” Don’t consider getting a Golden unless you’re willing to have him in the house with you, underfoot, every day. There’s one other potential drawback to the breed: He’s definitely not a watchdog. He might bark when strangers come around, but don’t count on it. Most likely, he’ll wag his tail and flash that characteristic Golden smile. The Golden Retriever is one of the most popular dog breeds in the United States. The breed’s friendly attitude makes them great family pets, and their intelligence makes them highly capable working dogs. Their high level of cognitive ability allows them to quickly learn various tasks. This makes them ideal candidates for training, assistance work, and therapy roles. They exhibit excellent problem-solving skills, can follow complex commands, and excel in obedience training. Beyond their inherent intelligence, Golden Retrievers are extremely emotionally intelligent, displaying a keen sense of empathy and understanding. This combination of cognitive and emotional intelligence contributes to their versatility and adaptability. Golden Retrievers excel at retrieving game, tracking, and working as therapy and service dogs. Additionally, they’re natural athletes and do well in dog sports such as agility and competitive obedience.

Thank you for visiting our website. I am called Richard Henderson. The Richard’s family are the owners of Golden Retriever Creek. We have been breeding this lovely breed dogs since 2013. My wife and I are pet lovers so we took up the initiative to breed these lovely dog breed to satisfy the needs of families who will want to own or add a new member to their family. My knowledge about the Golden Retriever has grown as the years go by as they are a dog breed that are very smart and make us to learn new things everyday. My history with owning a puppy goes right back to my Christmas holidays when I was 10 years old. My parents bought me a lovely Golden Retriever puppy which I named Rosie. Rosie gave me a lot of childhood memories when I was growing as a teen. She was more than a best friend to me. She was so lovely and friendly. Each time I got angry back then about something, Rosie was always there to console me and make me smile again. I always thought she could talk as she understood me so much. I always speak to her at times hoping she will respond. Everywhere I went to, Rosie was with me. I met my wife in college. We were very good friends back then. She loved Rosie until she insisted her parents should get her a Golden Retriever puppy. That was how our love for this Intelligent  dog breed grew up. Our dogs use to play together. Unfortunately in our later years at college, I lost my lovely puppy Rosie. We grew up loving each other so much and loving this dog breed. Later on, we got married and with our love for Golden Retriever. We decided to breed and raise this dog breed and why not educate puppy lovers about the importance of owning a Golden Retriever. Fast forward to today, my wife and I raise our 3 kids and breed the Puppies on our 3 acres of land where our puppies have enough space to play around. My family and I are dedicated to help everyone own the perfect, healthy puppy for their home. With our knowledge of this dog breed from childhood, we will say Golden Retriever are the best dogs to own.
