History of the Golden Retrievers
The breed is quite old. The first retrievers appeared among British aristocrats. They carried out the active selection and bred dogs for various types of hunting. Dudley Marjoribanks went down in history as a Scottish lord and founder of the breed.
Initially, golden retrievers were bred as specialists in finding shot game and delivering it to its owner. At the same time, the dogs were not frightened by dense thickets, swampy locations, and just the water surface.
The Golden Retriever has embodied the traits of many dogs. According to Sir Dudley's studbooks, the retriever got the genes:
☑ Bloodhound;
☑ Labrador;
☑ Tweed spaniel;
☑ Straight-haired retriever.
Sir Dudley's many years of work were appreciated. The breed was in great demand in the 19th century. By the 20th century, retrievers were being bought in the United States and Canada. Here the breed was slightly modified, getting a slightly darker color of the fur coat.
In this regard, it is customary to consider the following types of retrievers:
☑ English;
☑ Canadian;
☑ American.
Thanks to their excellent training skills, adaptability, and calm nature, the Goldens have become stars of advertising and cinema many times. In terms of intellectual abilities, these dogs are ranked 4th in the world.
