It is believed that Lord Tweedmouth in Scotland purchased the only yellow puppy that was born into a litter of black Flat Coated Retrievers. He then developed the breed with the aim of producing the lighter colour retriever, giving us the Golden Retriever.
They are a well-mannered, intelligent dog with great charm. They are easy to train but can tend to be big puppies sometimes. They are very good with children, which make them great family pets.

Grooming- regular brushing is needed to remove the constant shed of dead hairs. Bath when needed.

Exercise- they need quite a great deal of regular exercise, at least a long daily walk and some off lead running. They love to swim.

Health- This breed can be prone to hip dysplasia and eye problems and can suffer skin allergies.
