The Golden Retriever was originally bred as a hunting dog in Scotland. The earliest known Golden Retrievers were bred sometime in the 18th century as hunting companions to wealthy citizens. These dogs are still well-suited for hunting, as they are able to bring back game of any size without puncturing or tearing the animal with their teeth and rendering it useless to the hunter. The Golden Retriever has a warm, thick undercoat to guard against cold temperatures, and a soft, fluffy overcoat that is water-repellent. The Golden Retriever has deep-rooted hunting instincts by nature and is highly prey-driven, which makes it prone to wandering and exploring. As such, it is important to have a fenced area for your Golden or keep it on a leash at all times. Goldens are very loyal and friendly, which makes them well-suited for family pets and even service dogs.
