    I read this book (borrowed from a friend) cover to cover before getting my puppy and found it so invaluable I bought my own copy. It was certainly helpful during those early weeks!Highly recommend!

    I read this book cover to cover before we bought our golden retriever 'Gidget' for Jorden's fourth birthday. At the time, my doctor was telling me I could possibly have a brain tumor but it turned out to be a ball of infection. Kind of gross, but I thought I was going to die and I wanted my kids to have an animal to help them get through it. These books are really good if you want to learn about a breed. We just had to have Gidget put to sleep and we miss her every day. Goldens are a fabulous family pet.

    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. The author seems to genuinely love her many golden retrievers and has a lot to share from her personal experience.

    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.

    A great read, of course, for owners of Golden Retrievers. Recommend by our puppy's breeder for his first week at home. Any Golden Retriever owner needs this book!Read for my "A Book recommended by Someone You Just Met" 2016 Reading Challenge.

    Another good read for the road trip before we got Copper. She really understands goldens. We're not sure about the no tug-of-war rule - it's always been our dogs' favorite game! But other games are good. Like new parenting books, good to have someone holding your hand at first.
