Known for their unmatched kindness, the Golden Retriever has carved out a niche as the ultimate family dog. They are great with children, easy to train, and have seemingly endless amounts of patience. They do require a healthy amount of exercise every day in order to keep from becoming destructive. Also, because of their amicable demeanor, do not expect your Golden Retriever to apprehend any intruders.
The coat color of a Golden can range from a light cream color, into the yellows, or even into darker golden or copper shades.
