Life With Goldens

Many people would say that having a Golden Retriever as a pet is a welcomed addition to the family. They provide companionship at home both to parents and the kids! With basic training, these Goldens become gentle friends in the home not only to your own family but especially to friends. Many owners would say their Golden is "intelligent, friendly, & devoted!" See what the American Kennel Club has to say about Golden Retrievers.
PERFECT FOR HER
It's important to feel comfortable and safe when bringing a companion into your home and Golden's are proven to have an very gentle demeanor. If you're home with kids Golden's are very peaceful and easy to be around especially with young children. We have a 1 year old and she loves crawling up to Haven to give her a good snuggle. Women want beauty, safety, protection, and peace in a home and that's what an English Golden Retriever will provide.
PERFECT FOR HIM
If you enjoy the outdoors and exploring then Golden Retrievers are a great companion. The history of the Golden as cited by the AKC notes that "in the early 1800s, game was plentiful in England and Scotland, and hunting was both a sport and a practical way of obtaining food. Retrievers came into prominence because of the desire for a medium-sized dog that would do well in wild-fowling, both upland game and waterfowl." Hunting, hiking, swimming, or riding in the back of the truck, Golden's can do it all.
