Golden Retriever Puppy Chases Leash
Big dog: "been there buddy...just go on chasing that 😂 Just grab a leash, and the dog walks itself. Golden Retriever Rescue of El Paso says: We'd like people to know that Goldens are wonderful, loving, gentle and intuitive dogs, and they also have one of the highest cancer rates of any other breed. If you adopt a Golden Retriever, you must be committed to them to the very end of their lives and not abandon them in shelters, where we find so many senior Goldens. More about Golden Retrievers: Golden Retrievers, affectionately referred to as Goldens, are typically medium to large dogs with strong athletic builds. They are often described as having expressions that exude intelligence and gentleness, and these are both qualities that most Golden Retrievers and Golden Retriever mixes have in abundance! Goldens usually have thick coats that can be either straight or wavy, and soft drop ears. Those who share their home with Golden Retrievers and Golden Retriever mixes frequently describe them as tremendously intelligent companion animals that love everyone and everything, including other animals. They can be extremely eager to please, affectionate, devoted and obedient. In fact, they actually love to learn! This is a breed that is known to be particularly gentle and patient with children and to display equal parts of charm and playfulness. Most Golden Retrievers will shed all year round. They may shed more excessively, at least twice each year, when their coat is changing for the season. Regular brushing will minimize the amount of fur that is shed throughout the home. And, like other breeds with water repellent coats, the Golden should only be bathed when necessary to avoid removing the natural oils from their coat. Golden Retrievers are highly intelligent and social animals that require exercise and mental stimulation to avoid boredom and resulting behavioral problems and hyperactivity. Most Goldens love swimming-related activities, playing fetch, and even playing hide and seek. This is an activity that mimics search and rescue activities. Don’t forget to reward your pet with high praise or small treats when he finds you! If these activities are not possible for you on a regular basis, a long walk or a brisk run will help keep your Golden Retriever happy.
