It’s not surprising that Golden Retrievers are one of the most popular dog breeds in the United States. Along with being exuberant, friendly and playful, they are strong dogs and hard workers. Golden Retrievers also have an instinctive love of water and are easy to train.
Jimmy Fallon & Gary
The Golden Retriever comes from England (1800's) and was bred originally to hunt small game. They were named 'retriever' because of their ability to retrieve shot game undamaged.
Popular amongst celebrities, who wouldn't want to be one of Oprah Winfrey's two golden retrievers, Luca and Gracie. Jimmy Fallon is famous not only for hosting the Tonight Show, but also bringing his darling Golden Retriever Gary Frick to the show.
Lisa Vanderpump & Rumpy
While Lisa Vanderpump's (Real Housewives of Beverly Hills) dog Giggy has been a scene stealer, Lisa also received Rumpy Pumpy, a gorgeous Golden Retriever, from her husband, Ken, as a gift. We're looking forward to Rumpy stealing the show!
Nick Jonas & Elvis
Golden Retrievers are a long-coated breed, with a dense inner coat that provides them with adequate warmth in the outdoors, and an outer coat that lies flat against their bodies and repels water.
Golden Retrievers require regular grooming and occasional baths. Their coats shed somewhat during the year, but are known to shed profusely twice a year. While shedding is unavoidable, frequent grooming can reduce the amount of shedding. Need some help with shedding? Check out our article: Top 6 Products to Stop Your Dog from Shedding

There is something special about medium breeds that most people cannot ignore. After all, when comparing dog sizes, they are usually more physically active than small pooches. They are also more portable than big dogs. In this respect, we have some popular suggestions for you if you are open to adopting one!
Dogs that stay small are adorable, easy to carry and don’t eat much. This means they are easier to take care of, even on a budget! The thing about them is that they don’t always have a good reputation, primarily due to certain misinformed stereotypes. Chances are, you may also be having some of these misgivings.
Crate training is crucial because it ensures that your dog ends up with a good sense of security and comfort when you bring home one of these crates. They have to feel comfortable enough to enter the crate without feeling scared or forced.
Small dogs are adorable, cuddly, and they suit any home or apartment. They make the best companions for kids too! So, if you find yourself trying to decide which dog to adopt, we’ve got a few ideas on which ones should be at the top of your list.
