A dog is among man’s best friend since time immemorial. You will never go wrong when you decide to purchase one for yourself or even gift someone. Dogs always get a way of charming people and even builder a relationship with its owner in a way that we do not expect especially a golden retriever. However, before you go out and get a golden retriever there are key elements that you have to consider before selecting one to go home with. Discussed below are some features that will help you in choosing a golden retriever.
The first aspect is the style of golden retriever you one to get. Golden retrievers come in two main breeds which are athletic golden retriever and a blockheaded golden retriever. The style of the golden retriever will always be determined by the purpose, this means the reason you are getting a golden retriever in the first place. The athletic golden retriever which is also called a field golden retriever is mainly used in hunting while a blockheaded golden retriever which is mostly referred to us shows golden retrievers are bred for their specific looks.
The next factor to examine is sex. Often than not there is no major difference that their gender apart forms a bit of difference in personalities and size because many at times the male golden retriever is bigger than the female golden retriever. So decide on the gender of the golden retriever you are going to pick. If you are thinking of expending your brood in the future the best way to go is getting a female golden retriever that will give your puppies when you are ready to rear some. But if you do not need additional dogs go for a male one. It will serve the purpose you want it to.
In addition to that focus on the color of the golden retriever. Mostly they come in three sheds which are a red golden, cream-colored golden shed that is between the two. So depending on your taste and preference go for one that you like. If you are picking it up for someone you might consider showing them pictures of different golden retrievers with different colors just to be sure you get what they are going to love. Assuming you are getting it for yourself and you do not know what to pick you can have a look at both colors and then go for the one that speaks to you most.
The fourth factor to observe is the size. So you may want to get a golden retriever that is all grown and even trained to do the job you want them to for example an all grown field golden retriever that is already trained to hunt. Also, you may want to get one which is still a puppy for you to rear it and train it on your own and even discover its personality it grows up. In conclusion, the next time you are thinking of getting a golden retriever the factors discussed above will be of great help to you.
