Golden Retriever Puppies for Sale in Maryland
According to the American Kennel Club, the golden retriever ranks No. 3 out of 192 AKC-recognized breeds in popularity, and it’s easy to see why. This dog is well-known for being a fantastic family pet, and they grow to a decent but not too big size. At 21 to 24 inches and 55 to 70 pounds, the golden retriever is big enough to be considered a “dog’s dog” but doesn’t have the food costs or health problems associated with giant breeds. This breed has a signature long golden coat that sheds heavily and requires daily brushing.
The golden retriever is considered the ultimate family dog. It has a calm and steadfast temperament, which makes it ideal for families with small children, and while they are outgoing and social by nature, they’re good watchdogs and will protect their families if necessary. They generally get along very well with other dogs of any size, and most can learn to live amicably with cats. Golden retrievers are smart and easy to train, and they love to please their owners, so behavioral and obedience problems aren’t usually an issue. This breed does need a long, steady walk to get out their energy but will usually spend the rest of the day napping wherever the family is.
