A Comprehensive Site About The Remarkable Golden Retriever

There is nothing on this Earth quite as magical as a Golden Retriever! At least, that is our belief. My wife and I are die-hard fans of this breed. We have been blessed with being owned by 2 Goldens and it truly has been our privilege.

Anyone who has experienced this breed can likely understand and attest to the magic they bring with them. These dogs have an amazing ability to make us feel special. They bring out the best in everyone they interact with.

That is why we created this website -- to use our knowledge and love for this breed to help you better understand the pure magic of Golden Retrievers. This site has many tips on most aspects concerning Goldens--history, facts, the selection process, names, breeders, grooming, health and much more. We also guide you to other relevant information and resources.

Many pages will have a Magic Bullet on them which is a useful quick synopsis of the page's main point.
