The breed was developed in Scotland during the mid 1900s when waterfowl hunting was an incredibly popular sport for the Scottish Elite. At the time, existing retrievers were not skilled in retrieving over both land and water so they were crossed with the best water spaniels to create the breed that is now known as the Golden Retriever. The breed was first accepted by The Kennel Club in England in 1903 but it didn’t make its way to the U. S. until 1925. Today, the Golden Retriever is consistently ranked as the third most popular breed according to AKC registration after the Labrador Retriever and the German Shepherd. As a gun dog, the Golden Retriever has a large, strong build and a thick, water repellent coat. Golden Retrievers generally stand between 21 and 24 inches tall and they weigh anywhere between 55 and 75 pounds at maturity. These dogs are known for their beautiful golden coats, though the actual shade can range from very pale yellow to a deep gold color. The Golden Retriever has a medium length double coat with a soft undercoat and a wavy, water resistant topcoat. This breed sheds a moderate amount throughout the year and it sheds its undercoat twice a year, in the spring and fall.
