Hank is a Golden Retriever from Powell, Ohio and a graduate of the Homestead Dogs’ 2-Week Basic Dog Obedience Training Camp. Great job, Hank!
The Golden Retriever is one of the most popular dogs in the United States. Outgoing and eager-to-please, the Golden Retriever is a great family dog that loves to play and maintains a puppy-ness well into adulthood (a trait also common in human males).
Golden Retrievers were first bred in Scotland as a hunting dog better suited to the regional rugged terrain. The breeder crossed a Yellow Retriever with the now-extinct Tweed Water Spaniel with some Irish Setter and Bloodhound mixed in. When Golden Retrievers first appeared at a British Dog Show in 1908, hunters loved the dogs utility and stamina, show dog enthusiasts loved their natural beauty, and everyone loved their sweet temperament.
As a sports dog, Golden Retrievers love lots of activity and make great bike, hike and run companions.
Trainability Grade: B+
Golden Retrievers live to please their owners, are outgoing and extremely loyal making Goldens very trainable.
