In the mid-1800s, the English preferred black Retrievers, but Sir Dudley Majoribanks (Lord Tweedmouth) decided to develop a golden coloured wavy-coated version. He purchased a yellow Flat-Coated Retriever and bred it to the Tweed Water Spaniel, a now-extinct, curly coated light-coloured breed. The resulting dogs were then crossed to other light-coloured breeds such as Yellow Labradors, Red Setters and other Wavy-Coated Retrievers. In time, the “Golden Flat-Coat” type was established, and in 1920 renamed the Golden Retriever. The breed came to North America in the 1920s and immediately gained a following. Golden Retrievers are one of the world’s most popular breeds and frequently used as service dogs because of their kind intelligent personalities.
Known worldwide for his easy-going nature, the Golden Retriever is said to be born wanting to please. He is an intelligent dog and one of the easiest to train. Energetic, but not excitable, the Golden enjoys a good run and some games. He is wonderful with children of all ages, and pets of all sizes.
