Great, informative read with everything you need to know about Golden retrievers. I read it cover to cover before our puppy Chewy arrived and I was glad I did, because it helped me prepare well for him.

I have enjoyed reading this in preparation for our new puppy and after checking it out from the library decided to buy a copy to have on hand as a reference. Looking forward to using all I have learned and hoping that the information will be helpful in practice.

This is a great book, for when you are adopting, or buying goldens. It gives you lots of info on how to prepare, how you golden will act, and what to do about it.
