Links to Additional Information

It is important to do as much research as possible before bringing that special puppy or older dog into your life. There are many books available on the Golden Retriever that provide a generous amount of information. But - the best thing way to learn is to talk to breeders, owners and handlers of these wonderful dogs. Ask questions of all of these people as they are willing and eager to discuss all of the implications and responsibilities involved in making the Golden Retriever an important member of your family.
