Temperament

What is a Golden Retriever like?

Golden Retrievers are the third most popular family dog in Singapore and it’s not difficult to see why. Loving, cheerful, and trustworthy are words that pet owners would use when describing their golden retrievers. 

They are a highly sociable dog breed, getting along well not just with humans, but with other pets as well. No worries then if you already own another dog or a even a family cat. Golden Retrievers quickly acquaint themselves with their new found companion, ever so eager to make friends.

With you too, they crave and dish out affection in equal doses, and are one of the most loving dogs ever. Only a Golden Retriever owner knows what it feels like to snuggle with them. They can make you forget all your other worldly troubles, and feel genuinely happy, even if for a moment.

Golden Retriever Adoption Notes

Quick Summary

  • Whilst not one of the heaviest shedders, Golden Retrievers still do shed quite a substantial amount. As such, finding their fur around the house and on some of your clothing is something you’ll have to eventually get used to. Brushing them about once a week is more than enough however to keep their coat lookings new and fresh.
  • Golden Retrievers are one of the most domesticated dog breeds around, and are more used to spending time indoors. Whilst they do enjoy the occasional exercise, be careful not to leave it alone outside on your balcony for long periods of time.
  • But boy do they love exercises. They can go really hard for 40-60 minutes every day. Agility classes comes really natural for them, as they can expend on their bundle of energy during those lessons. 

Quick Summary

  • Their boundless energy may sometimes be a double edged sword. They can be careless when running around the house, and might accidentally sometimes knock over a small child if they don’t see him there.
  • Nevertheless, there’s not too much to worry about even if you have children at home. Golden Retrievers are a breed that’s known to be extraordinarily gentle and trustworthy with kids. 
  • Golden Retrievers love to eat as much as the next human. Whether it’s a proper meal, or a small treat, they will devour whatever they can set their eyes on. As such, you have to take proper care of the goodies that you leave around the house. Don’t leave them exposed, or they’ll be gone in a second. Take care not to overfeed your Golden Retriever, for some of them do actually become overweight.

Absolutely amazing staff

My experience with SingaporePuppyAdoption is really positive. I interacted with Nicole whilst buying my golden retriever. She is an absolute gem of a person and you can tell that she truly cares about the animals in there. When I bought my puppy, she had a skin condition. Once Nicole found out about this, she messaged me almost every single day for 3 weeks (and still does today) to check up on her. She's so lovely and very well informed about animals.

Basic profile of a Golden Retriever

Activity

01. Exercise Requirements

Golden Retrievers are full of energy, and love nothing more than going for long runs and other high intensity activities. They love swimming, and would gladly spend hours playing with you in the pool. Alternatively, you can always take them to the neighbourhood garden for a game of fetch. Remember to throw it a good distance away, or you’ll find them coming back to you in a split second. 

Their bountiful energy makes them ideal candidates for obedience training or agility classes.

Fitness

03. Potential Health Issues

Whilst relatively healthy, Golden Retriever are still prone to certain health issues just like any other dogs. 20% of Golden Retrievers would eventually develop some form of joint disease, as they continue to age and grow old. 

Just because of the way the ears are shaped, golden retrievers might also be susceptible to ear infections. It’s therefore good practice for the owner to check on their ears on a weekly basis. Make sure to clean them thoroughly whenever you bath them. Do this right and they are likely to stay healthy for a long while.

Breaking In

02. Obedience Training Style

Opinions might differ when it comes to the ideal age of training a Golden Retriever. However, at SingaporePuppyAdoption, we have seen the best successes training these puppies when they’ve hit 8 weeks old.

When they are young, these Golden Retrievers are better able to absorb new information. Not only do they understand them better, but they also are much more impressionable. This ensures that trainings you embark on with them are more likely to stick through their lifetimes. 

Food

04. Nutritional Requirements

The most active of Golden Retrievers would do well on a daily diet of between 1,300 – 1,500 calories per day. Dry kibble can serve as a good nutritional option, whilst also keeping the teeth of the Golden Retrievers healthy. 

Canned food are also good candidates, as add it adds much-needed moisture into a typical Golden Retriever’s diet. Stay away from good that has high-fat content. Avoid also feeding them with human food without first consulting your veterinarian.
