So what makes a good Golden Retriever puppy?
Well, their eyesight is excellent and they are not afraid of anything. These traits make them perfect for training purposes. Another trait which makes them so smart is their ability to learn new things quickly. However, these traits come at a cost; they tend to get bored easily and need lots of attention.
The Golden Retriever puppy’s coat color varies greatly depending on the breed. Some breeds have light colored coats while others have dark ones. While some breeds may only grow up to be medium-sized dogs, others can reach huge sizes! Most dog breeds can be either large or small, though some can be both.
Either way, all dogs are man’s (and woman’s!) best friends.
There are several different types of dogs too. Some of the most popular ones include: Bulldogs, Dalmatians, Mastiffs, Poodles and many, many more. Each breed has their own distinct traits and personality quirks. Take the Bulldog, for example.
Bulldogs are known to have a very short and stiff coat, a pronounced under bite, a large head and a muscular body. Dalmatians are more famous for being fire dogs rather than companions nowadays, but they still make for excellent pets. Dalmatians have a very thin coat which is prone to tar build-up if they spend a lot of time walking on road surfaces. Poodles are excellent swimmers and are recommended if you want to own a dog but don’t have a pool. There are several different types of Poodles each with its own distinct size and coat. Poodles are famous for not getting along with other dogs in the household, so keep this in mind if you have other Pets.
