There's a reason Disney chose a golden retriever for the role as Air Bud. These are emotionally well-balanced dogs with a playful attitude and obedient air. Unlike many dogs who bark with an aggressive tone, this dog even barks in a friendly way as it invites you to play. Golden retriever owners swear by these enthusiastic and trustworthy animals.
Needs: Just two speedy walks and an energetic weekend will keep this dog in terrific spirits. A good chew toy is recommended as this dog is highly connected to its mouth. Regular bathing will be in order since these dogs like to roll in the dirt, and even an occasional vacuuming to mitigate shedding.
