The History of the Golden Retriever
The golden retriever breed was developed in Scotland in the highland estate of Sir Dudley Majoribanks or Lord Tweedmouth. He was aiming to breed a talented retriever as he was a waterfowl hunter. He bred the golden retriever to have an amazing nose who would be attentive to their human hunting companion. He also wanted a dog that was loyal and even-tempered as a family dog.
Tweedmouth bred the beginnings of the Golden retriever breed between 1868 and 1871 and was selectively breeding puppies to be a golden colour and was initially popular for its hunting abilities. The breed resulted from crossing a number of other breeds which include spaniels, setters, and Newfoundland. The combination of breeds resulted in a strong dog who can swim, withstand cold temperatures, track game and hunt birds with talent and skill.
The Kennel Club officially recognised the breed as distinct in 1911 and in 1920 they became officially known as the Golden Retriever.
The golden retriever breed was eventually established and made its way to the homes of many people all around the world. Today, golden retrievers are still amazing bird hunters but they are also loving family pets and popular service dogs with the blind and as search and rescue and contraband detection dogs due to their intelligence, heightened senses and trainability.
