We have had three Golden Retrievers so far, and we think they are the kindest, friendliest and daftest dogs on earth. The most important thing about them probably is their loyalty, and how safe they are with children.
From their perspective, the most important thing of all, is the need for company, even beyond the need for excercise.
We got our first one, Kelly shortly after we were married, and he was more or less our first baby. Since then we have raised two children and now have our first grandchild but neither ever needed the sort of attention that this dog needed. He was in our face from the moment we woke up to the moment we went to bed, but he was such a character that we just loved him.
with golden retrievers it's best to give them at least one reasonably long walk in the morning and one in the evening.
They need two meals a day, usually some meat and biscuits, and we often give ours some green and red vegetables mixed in. Always have some fresh water because they drink slowly throughout the day.
Be careful when you walk them because they love rolling about in muck, and they will plunge into water at the drop of a hat, so be prepared for them to come home absolutely filthy. One other thing, don't let them near ducks or geese because they will catch them and as their name suggests, retrieve them and bring them back to to you, usually with a broken neck.
Summary: If you are looking for a medium to large dog, you can't go wrong with this one
