Golden Retriever

The Golden Retriever is a golden yellow long-haired retriever bred in the 19th century by a Scottish monarch using the Labrador, the Irish Setter and the extinct Variegated WaterHound. Later, this breed gradually became a famous golden retriever. At that time, this kind of dog was very suitable for biting prey, because their mouths were very soft when they bit it. Golden Retrievers have strong swimming abilities and can retrieve prey from the water to their owners. It is also a loyal, friendly family friend of humans and can also be trained as an excellent guide dog.

Golden Retriever

The original birth of the Golden Retriever is controversial , and the improved breed can be roughly considered to have been in the late 19th century. Originally named the Soviet Russian Tracking Dog, it later joined the genes of the Phillip Hunting Dog Breed, the Bloodhound Dog Breed, and the Water Hunting Sandpiper Breed. The result of breeding is this breed that is born with the ability to retrieve prey, is good at tracking and has a keen sense of smell.

The history of the Scottish Golden Retriever dates back to 1865, when hunting was popular in Scotland, so medium-sized dog breeds that were good at hunting wild animals were very popular with hunters, and there was a shallow pig liver-colored Rab Water Hound with long earlobes, which was often found in Scotland, but this breed was extinct. Later, a Scottish nobleman named Lord Tweedmouth tried to breed with the yellow Labrador Retractor, an extinct Rab Water Hound, and after many breed improvements, it gradually became the golden retriever known today.

Golden Retriever

Until the nineteenth century, the Golden Retriever was already popular in Britain, famous all over Britain, the popularity of the united states, widely popular with the British, in 1903 the first Golden Retriever in the British Dog Association officially registered, eight years later the British Golden Retriever Association was established. Later, some tourists to the United Kingdom brought the Golden Retriever back to the United States and Canada for hunting purposes, until November 1925, when the Golden Retriever was registered with the AKC, but at that time it was only recognized as a retriever. It was not until 1927 that KennelClub of Canada was the first to recognize the Golden Retriever as an independent dog breed, and in 1932, akc also established the Golden Retriever Association (Grca), which is still a member

Golden Retriever

As many as 5,000. Fifty years later, the Golden Retriever has won three consecutive championships in the AKC Obedience Competition, and in 2001 the Golden Retriever was selected by the AKC as one of the top ten most popular registered dog breeds, ranking second only to the Labrador Retriever.

Related legends

As for the origin of the Golden Retriever, people have different opinions. One of the legends is told this way: Sir Dudley Marjoribanks (later Sir Tweedmouth) saw eight Russian acrobatic dogs juggling one day at a seaside resort in Brighton, England. Sir Dudley was so captivated by the performance that he followed the circus and proposed to the circus owner the idea of buying two of the dogs. His request was rejected because the circus owner told him that if two of the dogs were sold, it would ruin the overall performability of the dogs in the group. In the end, Sir Dudley decided to buy all eight dogs. Later, these eight dogs gradually formed today’s Golden Retriever through the mixing with the blood hound. The story was widely circulated, so it was believed that the Golden Retriever was descended from the Hounds on Sir Dudley’s Scottish farm.

Golden Retriever

Dogs were originally gregarious animals, fearful of leaders, striving to protect their companions and entering humans

After life, it obeys the orders of the head of the family, and the hostess feeds and takes care of it, and the child plays with it; the man who spends the least time at home is in awe. Conversely, if the hostess is more majestic and guides the whole family, it will also completely obey the hostess. It is afraid, even afraid of those who are taller than it, and those who are as tall or small as it, the dog will instead have a strong desire to protect them out of curiosity.

Golden Retriever

By nature prefers to live in groups, in dog farms, rural or suburban dog masses, total

There is a head dog that leads the group of dogs and will dominate and govern them. The head dog’s chief status is usually expressed by the following specific actions: such as allowing oneself but not allowing the other party to examine the genitals of other dogs, and not allowing the other dog to urinate in the opposite direction where the other dog has urinated. The opponent can shake his head in front of the head dog, swing his tail, be naughty, sit down or lie down, and stand when the head dog leaves. Once the level advantage is clear, the hostility disappears and you begin to become friends. Therefore, the owner should erect the image of the head dog, not too pampered, and make the dog think that it is the head dog.

Golden Retriever

Dogs have a strong sense of territory and are accustomed to marking its “sphere of influence” with peeing. In its field, it can be very angry, and once it reaches a strange place, especially a place with a strong smell of dogs and cats, it has no courage. This is often the case when it approaches the animal hospital, refusing to move forward, or trembling, or even drooling nervously. So it is often centered on itself, the golden retriever marks the boundaries with its own scent, and often renews, a territory can only belong to one or two dogs or the entire group of dogs.

Golden Retriever

Interacting with people is a natural habit of dogs, especially with children, and this innate habit often depends on the degree of contact with people at 3-7 weeks of age. If a dog is only with its parents or other dogs in the first two months of life, or does not really understand people, it is easy to have a situation of not loving to interact with people and not training well. If it is caressed by people from an early age, this makes it realize that people are its friends and familiar with people’s smells. This will develop a character that loves to interact with people and is easy to train.

Golden Retriever


The dogs are busy picking things up, and the best ones are picking up slippers, shoes, balls, rag dolls, and so on. Favorite toys are spherical toys. Come to the owner’s side, raise a leg to attract the owner’s attention, or rush over, play with the owner, and ask to play together. They will “hum, hum” in a nasal tone, constantly circle around the owner, or as soon as they see something, they will immediately bite into their mouths and run to the owner; even if it is a large piece of dead wood.

Golden Retriever


Making a “hum, hum” with a nasal sound, the body kept getting closer, hoping that the owner could touch it. It will pass through the crotch of the owner, or lie down on the stomach to “play tricks” to the owner. At this time, don’t drive it away fiercely, even if it is only for a moment, try to maintain physical contact with it. This allows it to feel the love of the owner.


When the puppy has just left its mother or has been left alone at home, it will bark “whining~~~~”. Hanging his shoulders, bowing his head, standing weakly on its “territory”. Even if a ball rolls over, it won’t look at it. Exhale a sigh, trying to get yourself to sleep. At such times, only the gentleness of the owner can give it love.


Dogs will be completely obedient to their identified chiefs. Of course, the owner of the dog is the owner, and it will only make an unguarded action of lying on its back and revealing the stomach of the biggest weakness to its owner, which means that it has no intention of resisting at all, and it is a signal of absolute obedience. In addition, the tail is straightened backwards, the abdomen is lying on the ground, the ears are collapsed, and when the owner looks up in mourning, it represents obedience.

Golden Retriever


In case the toy is lost, it will clamp the toy hard with its front legs, or bite and shake it with its teeth. Because I am too excited, I will drool or stand up.


After full activity and play, you will lie down lazily, immersed in a pleasant feeling of fatigue, and feel satisfied inside. While watching the every move of the owner and his family, he confirmed that everyone had not forgotten its existence. When you are in a good mood, you will also make a pleasant sound.


Eating and walking are happy times. Hanging down its ears, squinting its eyes, and spitting out its tongue are its expressions when it’s in a good mood. The tail swayed vigorously, the body twisted from side to side, and the steps were light. When the tail is wagging desperately, it is the time when it is happiest. Sometimes, it wrinkles its nose, curls its upper lip, and makes a smiley gesture. When it makes a “hum, hum” sound from the nose, it is also a symbol of happiness.

Golden Retriever


Fatigue after adequate exercise also overwhelms the dog. The puppy will immediately fall asleep, yawn, and soon fall asleep. When it is deeply asleep, how to call, can not wake it up, may wish to let it sleep well. As the saying goes, “an inch is bigger”, when it wakes up after a good sleep, it will move around energetically until it is tired.


Dogs are also silent when thinking. But the dog doesn’t meditate because it doesn’t fit its personality. It will soon be ready for the next action and is very enthusiastic about it. When it thinks about the moment between actions and actions, and repeats this thinking continuously, it can learn a lot from it. Therefore, repetitive exercises are the key to tuning.


When the dog wants to say something, it will desperately look up at the owner with this “want to talk and stop” eyes. It will tirelessly make the same action, and then make a low-pitched call, hoping that the owner can understand its mood. At this time, efforts should be made to perceive its requirements from its eyes. The dog’s appeal is very simple and simple, and it is absolutely impossible to make extravagant demands.


Dogs get bored because they don’t know what to do next after having fun. As a result, I feel lazy, only my eyes are constantly looking for new naughty objects. But the dog can’t be immersed in this boredom all the time, and as soon as there is something that stimulates its curiosity, it will immediately get up and completely forget about itself.

Interest is strong

The dog’s curiosity is very strong. When you first see animals and insects. The ears will be sensitively erect, the tail will be constantly wagging, with a little tension, slowly approaching. Smell the taste, when you understand “everything safe”, you will smell it with your nose, bite it with your mouth… When you feel strange or encounter something strange, you will twist your neck like a person and fall into thinking.


When the owner plays with himself, he will make it feel very happy. Raise your tail, stretch your neck, trot briskly, jump when you’re happy, and show uncontrollable joy all over your body. He will also shake his ears up and down, spit out his tongue “ha, ha” to the owner.

Golden Retriever

Must be prepared

1. Regularly bring golden retriever dogs for preventive injections. In addition, implantation of chips and disease treatment are all things that must be bothered in the growth process of golden retrievers.

2. Because the golden retriever puppy has not yet learned to excrete at a fixed point, the number of excretions is more. Therefore, the owner may have to be patient all day with the newspaper, waiting behind the golden retriever’s ass to receive the dog’s poop and urine. At the same time, as soon as the little golden retriever moved, he immediately held it to the designated place and began to learn fixed-point excretion.

3, the feeding main bother to comb the thick back hair of the golden retriever, not only need to comb the hair every day, but also, when the dog eats, it also needs to pay attention not to let its mouth eat dirty, but also to avoid being dirty by food. In addition, the cleanliness of the usual environment can not be neglected; it should be known that the little golden retriever will roll on the ground and make himself dirty.

4, think clearly whether you are willing to make the dog happy for a lifetime, and whether you are willing to continue to urinate for the dog, wash the mattress and quilt, and spend more than ten years with it.

Golden Retriever

History and lineage

Records indicate that the Golden Retriever began in the 18th century and may have been a mating of a brightly haired flat-haired hound with an extinct water hound, or it may have been a descendant of the long-eared water hound and the Newfoundland dog. It has excellent water handling capacity.


1. Inject the dog vaccine on time.

2, nutritionally balanced dog food is the healthiest and safest food, appropriate supplementary meat is also possible. Calcium supplement is very important, the golden retriever has a large bone mass, so the growth process of calcium requirements are very large, to avoid the deformation of bones and legs, special pet calcium plus vitamin AD pills can meet the needs.

3, do not take a bath frequently, frequent bathing will hurt the hair and skin, about once a month in summer, once every 2 to 3 months in winter.

4, golden retrievers do not need to do grooming, often trim the soles of the feet and cut toenails can be. Daily maintenance of ear and eye cleanliness.

5, proper exercise is conducive to bone development, but pay attention to avoid activity on the grass to prevent parasites, dogs are forbidden to sniff the feces of other dogs, because most of the source of the virus is transmitted through feces.

6. Prevent indiscriminate bites of debris, in order to prevent swallowing foreign bodies and poisoning, it is forbidden to feed dogs omnivorous, otherwise it is easy to suffer from anorexia and gastrointestinal system diseases.

7, proper sun exposure is beneficial to dogs. Lack of sunlight can lead to hypopigmentation (such as nose discoloration), and sunlight can increase pigmentation, replenish calcium, and kill viral mites to prevent skin diseases.

8, golden retrievers are susceptible to arthritis and osteoporosis, so do not let the dog sleep in a cool place, pay attention to winter climate change, in order to prevent cold fever and respiratory diseases. Golden Retriever normal body temperature: puppies 38.5-39 degrees; adult dogs: 37.5-38.5 degrees.

Golden Retriever

Golden Retriever is a large dog, be sure to guarantee the dog’s daily adequate nutrition and reasonable diet structure, in order to let it grow healthily. Meat and protein are the most important nutrients in dog food. The following is an introduction to the four major meat foods and nutrient structures in the homemade dog food of the Golden Retriever.

Meat and its by-products

Meat is made up of animal muscle, intermuscular fat, muscle sheath, tendons, and blood vessels. Meat is a good source of iron and some B vitamins (especially niacin, vitamin B1, vitamin B2 and vitamin B12). Feeding golden retriever dogs with such foods has good palatability, high digestibility and rapid utilization.

Pigs, cattle, lambs, meat calves, chickens and rabbits are very similar in lean meat composition, especially moisture and protein, the difference is mainly manifested in the change of fat, the moisture content is 70% to 76%, the protein content is 22% to 25%, the fat content is between 2% and 9%, the fat content of poultry, meat calves and rabbits is 2% to 5%, and the quality of lamb and pig is 7% to 9%.

Meat by-products, regardless of the animal they come from, are generally similar in terms of nutrient content, and they are more watery than lean meats, contain less protein, and the fat content varies greatly. Meat contains no carbohydrates because energy is mostly stored in fats rather than sugars and starches.

The protein in meat and meat by-products has a high nutritional value, the content of calcium in all meat is very low, the ratio of calcium and phosphorus has changed greatly, the ratio of calcium and phosphorus is 1:10 to 1:20, and the lack of vitamin A, vitamin D and iodine is lacking. Therefore, in the daily dog food of the Golden Retriever, meat is the most important, and it is necessary to let the Golden Retriever eat a certain amount of animal muscle every day.


Fish are generally divided into fatty fish and protein fish. Protein fish include: cod, flounder, flounder and halibut, usually contain less than 2% fat; fatty fish are: herring, herring, sardines, small eel, goldfish, eel, etc., with a higher fat content, up to 5%-20%. Protein fish have the same protein and lean meat composition, but are rich in iodine; fatty fish are rich in fat-soluble vitamins.

Fish are not as palatable as meat, and in general, dogs are less fond of eating fish than meat. And when eating fish, be sure not to get pricked by the flesh of the golden retriever.


Dairy products are also important for golden retrievers. Dairy products in general include cream, skimmed milk, whey, yogurt, cheese and butter. Milk contains most of the nutrients needed by golden retrievers, but iron and vitamin D are deficient.

Each 100 grams of milk contains 271.7 kJ of energy, 3.4 grams of protein, 3.9 grams of fat, 4.7 grams of lactose, 0.12 grams of calcium, and 0.1 grams of phosphorus.

Milk is more palatable to golden retrievers, and in general, no matter what kind of dog, they prefer to drink milk.


Eggs are a good source of protein, iron, vitamin B2, vitamin B12, folic acid and vitamin A, vitamin D, but lack niacin. Therefore, eggs should not be used as a staple food of the Golden Retriever, but only as a beneficial supplement to the Golden Retriever’s food.

What are the canine nutrition products

1. Vitamin supplementation: such as a multivitamin complex powder or a pill puppy golden vitamin.

2. Nutritional: to supplement protein, a variety of nutrition as the main function, such as puppy goat milk powder, nutritional cream and so on.

3. Calcium supplementation: calcium powder such as super calcium, calcium tablets and so on.

4. Beautiful hair: For the beauty and nutrition of the dog’s fur, there are many kinds of beautiful hair, such as top seaweed powder and other nutrients.

5. Supplemental pigments: such as natural astaxanthin and other natural nutrients that supplement the color of dogs.

6. Joint maintenance: such as ammonia sugar and some commonly used joint raw gold version of joint maintenance of nutrition products.

(1) Food for puppies: such as dog food and canned food.

(2) Calcium: Supplement calcium products with high natural content like super energy calcium to promote the development of bones and teeth of puppies.

(3) Milk powder for puppies: there is a special puppy goat milk powder.

(4) Egg yolk: The advantage of egg yolk is that it is not only rich in protein, but also contains vitamin A, calcium and minerals that are easily digested and absorbed.

(5) Vitamins and minerals: For puppies with poor physique, consider supplementing with some additional vitamins and minerals, you can consider feeding 21 gold vitamins, and there are also pet-specific puppies golden vitamins.

(6) Meat: although cattle, pigs, chicken, etc. are excellent foods, when feeding puppies, it is advisable to choose the fat-free part, because fat is easy to deteriorate!

At different stages of puppy development, the growth capacity of each part of the body is unbalanced. In the first 3 months of life, the main growth of the body and weight gain, from the 4th month to 6 months, the main growth body length, after 7 months the main growth of the body height, which is based on the different stages of development of the dog body needs nutrients, to determine the type and amount of feed. After the puppy leaves the female dog and enters an independent life, it is necessary to supply sufficient and rich protein, fat, carbohydrates, minerals and vitamins throughout the growth and development period. Such as grain, lean meat, milk, eggs, vegetables, dried fish oil, bone meal, etc., and should be done regularly and quantitatively.

Golden Retriever

Puppies 2 to 3 months old, fed 4 to 5 times a day, each puppy daily amount standard is 200 grams of lean meat, 300 grams of milk, 1 egg, 250 to 500 grams of rice, 250 to 300 grams of vegetables, 3 to 5 grams of salt, and supplement the appropriate amount of vitamin minerals, super calcium and other calcium powder. If possible, give the puppy some pig and cow cartilage to eat, but do not feed the chicken bones. After 8 months of age, it can be fed according to the feed diet standard of adult dogs.

Golden Retriever

The above standard is the amount of large dogs, other sizes of dogs should be based on the situation, in general, after feeding puppies to eat, there is still surplus food in the food bowl, indicating that there is too much food; on the contrary, after the dog food continues to lick the food bowl with the tongue or look at the owner, indicating that the food given is less and not enough to eat. Note: The feed fed to puppies must be of high quality freshness, prepared separately, freshly fed (except for commercial foods), and pay attention to hygiene to prevent gastrointestinal diseases. The owner of the puppy should personally feed the dog, do a regular and quantitative location every day, and do not give any food to eat during the non-feeding time to avoid making the dog develop bad habits. And carefully observe the performance of puppies eating, especially during the group breeding period, to prevent a small number of puppies from overeating, resulting in other puppies not eating enough, can not eat uneven phenomenon. Because puppies have weak digestive function, the food they should not be fed too hard at the beginning, and more rotten (processed) food should be fed. Do not feed raw or cold foods such as bones too early, so as not to affect the development of the dog.

Golden Retriever


First, the golden retriever has longer hairs, while the Labrador’s are shorter. Labrador’s coat is a smooth, double-layered coat, and the golden retriever’s coat is straight or wavy.
