According to Wikipedia:

The Golden Retriever is a large-sized breed of dog bred as gun dogs to retrieve shot waterfowl such as ducks and upland game birds during hunting and shooting parties,[3] and were named ‘retriever’ because of their ability to retrieve shot game undamaged. Golden Retrievers have an instinctive love of water, and are easy to train to basic or advanced obedience standards. They are a long-coated breed, with a dense inner coat that provides them with adequate warmth in the outdoors, and an outer coat that lies flat against their bodies and repels water. Golden Retrievers are well suited to residency in suburban or country environments. Although they need substantial outdoor exercise, they should be housed in a fenced area because of their instinctual tendency to roam.[4] They shed copiously, particularly at the change of seasons, and require fairly regular grooming.

The breed is a prominent participant in conformation shows for purebred dogs. The Golden Retriever is popular as a disability assistance dog such as being a guide dogfor the blind and a hearing dog for the deaf. In addition, they are trained to be a hunting dog, a detection dog, and a search and rescue participant. The breed’s friendly, gentle temperament means it is unsuited to being a professional guard dog, but its temperament has also made it the third-most popular family dog breed (by registration) in the United States,[5] the fifth-most popular in Australia,[6] and the eighth-most popular in the United Kingdom.[7] Golden Retrievers are rarely choosy eaters, but require ample exercise (of two or more hours a day).[8] The breed is fond of play but also highly trainable.

Characteristics

The Golden Retriever is a large, strongly built breed with a dense, water-repellant wavy coat.[9] As a dog with origins in pedigree breeding, and due to its widespread historical popularity, some regional variations have emerged in the breed; therefore, the three subtypes of the Golden Retriever reflect the typical variations in dimensions and coat. However, all Golden Retrievers are blonde, yellow, or gold in colour and all subtypes are susceptible to the same health problems.[10] Golden Retrievers also are very smart dogs that are loyal and friendly to their caregivers.

Dog Seat Covers Rock Your Drive With Your Pets

by: Jenny Gregorich

Dog car seats and car seat covers are a boon to confusing dog owners who are in an emotional battle between their love towards their own car and pet. Especially when it comes in the case of man’s best friend the consequences are still higher. Usually the owners wholeheartedly have the intention of taking pets along with them for drive. But while thinking about the side effects of your beloved bowwow a normal person like you would naturally avoid taking them on account of the after damage of the expensive upholstery. But does it make any sense if you continue to neglect your pets rather than finding a perfect remedy?

Dog car seats and car seat covers are those durable and affordable accessories that will make your pet happy and leaves your car unaffected. These are designed in such a way to withstand pointed paws and sharp teeth. Dog car seat covers are used to protect seats of your car from dog-related problems. Canines are known to drip their hair and saliva which would leave stain marks on your beloved leather car seat. Your dog may bring his muddy paws filled with dirt and grass and clean them on your expensive car seat cover. All these can spoil seats and you would have a hard time removing them. Dog car seat covers are used as a cheap but effective way to protect the seats and keep them clean.

Also the dog covers are designed in such a way to prevent the dogs from slipping out of their hold. Though some covers are custom designed to fit particular car seats, most of them available in the market are of standard sizes and can fit all types of seats in all kinds of vehicles. They are quite cheaper than specially designed covers. Covers are made with a foam lining, which may be few inches thick to provide added comfort for the person sitting on the seat. The foam lining also provides insulation to the person.

However and whatever the types may be the basic function of car seat covers remains unchanged which is to protect the seats from damage. Expensive seats of cars can be rescued from animal marks, food marks, sweat stains, etc. by using car seat covers. Car seat covers are a small investment considering they protect precious car seats. It is necessary to wash car seat covers frequently especially after long drives and after the car has been kept in the garage for a long time with the covers on. While buying a car seat cover, it must be checked if the covers are easy to remove and put on so that they can be washed regularly.
