Golden Retriever Colors – The Many Gorgeous Shades of Gold:
The Golden Retriever is one of the most popular breeds in Canada. There are many reasons why it has become so popular. One reason is because it looks good with any kind of clothing or accessories. Another reason is its friendly nature which makes them very easy to live with and train. A third reason is their high energy level which keeps them busy all day long making training a breeze!
When choosing a golden retriever, you have several options. You could go for a purebred or mixed breed. A purebreed is one of the best choices since they tend to look similar no matter where they come from. They are also easier to train and maintain than mixes. However, if you want something different then you need to choose a mixed breed!
Mixed breeds are made up of two different types of dogs; either purebreds or mixes. If you want a dog that is both beautiful and smart, then you should consider getting a golden retriever mix. These dogs are usually medium sized and have some characteristics of both purebreds and mixes.
There are several kinds of golden retrievers available in Canada. Some of these include:
American Shorthair (or Standard) – These dogs were bred to hunt foxes, raccoons, rabbits, etc. They are very popular in the southern states of the US. While they might look cute and furry, they have a strong instinct to hunt small animals. They bond very strongly with their owners and can be aloof around other people.
Golden Retriever (or English) – These dogs were bred to retrieve game for hunters. They have a great sense of smell and are one of the most trainable breeds in existence. They love everyone and are always ready to play or work.
Labrador (or Flat Coated) – These dogs were bred to hunt waterfowl and other game. They have a medium length coat which is fairly easy to maintain. Their friendly nature makes them slightly less trainable than golden retrievers.
These are only a few of the many different types of retrievers that you can choose from! Whether you want a dog that is highly active, loves water or one that is more aloof, you have many different choices available to you. Get yourself a dog today and start enjoying the benefits that come with pet ownership!
