and with that happy, swishing tail that is just coffee table height they can seem a lot bigger. So you need room in your home for a Golden Retriever, they are a people loving dog and this means they follow you everywhere around the home, always wanting to be by your side, which in a small space could become annoying so you need lots of room, they are not going to be happy unless they are part of the family so if you want a dog just for the backyard don't get a Golden Retriever.

So is a Golden Retriever the right dog for you? 

Don't get a Golden if you have a small home, must keep your home immaculately clean, prefer a sedentary lifestyle or are short on time or money. They shed a lot of hair all year round, require a lot of time for exercise and are a 10 to 15 year commitment of your time and money. Golden Retrievers are adorable in their looks, temperament and personalities. The are a great family pet, life companion and friend, but you need to know and be prepared for what is involved with owning a Golden Retriever.
