Golden Retriever Pet Insurance
Golden Retrievers are one of the popular breeds for families as they are are known to have such a gentle temperament, incredibly loving and caring and great with kids. Being eternal puppies, they are always up for play and learning new tricks.
With great intelligence and kindness, it's no surprise that these dogs are so popular. Eager to please, the golden retriever will do anything for their human friends! Also, they are unlikely to bark loudly and are friendly towards children.
They are commonly used as guide dogs or rescue dogs, highlighting their unique intelligence and ability to be trained well. Adult Golden Retrievers usually weigh 25kg to 34kg and live between 10 and 12 years.

Common Health Problems for French Bulldogs
Golden Retrievers can quickly get overweight and be at high risk for hip and elbow dysplasia, which is when the joint ball and socket do not fit correctly and get inflamed. Consider limiting your puppy's time on hard surfaces, as it may affect their bone development later in life. Hip dysplasia can easily result in the dog being less able to walk normally, leading to chronic pain; therefore, visiting your vet immediately is essential.
Tumours are common in Golden Retrievers, so you'll want to regularly check your dog's body during your grooming routine. Luckily, the tumours usually cause no damage, but they may require removal if they impact your dog's mobility. If you notice anything strange on your dog's body, it's a good idea to get your vet to have a look as soon as possible.
