Golden’s are ranked 3rd out of the 192 AKC breeds! They were originally used as Scottish hunting dogs, but these loving, eager-to-please canines have come to be known as the ultimate family dog. The puppies are joyful, playful, and have been known to be fast learners, and easy to train. If you want to keep your golden entertained for hours, try activities like swimming and fetching.
