  • Highly trainable thanks to their intelligence and keenness to please

Negatives

  • Can be a little mouthy which is a trait that needs to be gently curbed when Golden Retrievers are still young and before it turns into a real problem
  • High maintenance on the grooming front
  • Can have a “doggy” smell about them
  • They need a lot of exercise and mental stimulation
  • Easily distracted by things that go on around them
  • Golden Retrievers shed a lot of hair all year round and even more so in the Spring and Autumn
  • Known to suffer from quite a few health issues so vet bills can be high
