diffrances between Golden and Labrador reteriver

Post by Theo400 » Tue Jan 27, 2015 2:05 pm


im just curios as they look alike except the Goldie only comes in one coulor and has a longer coat. Are there any other differences. I did read that Goldie's are more calm than Labs?

Pleas give me your thoughts

Not that alike if you see one next to the other. :) Goldens are generally calmer than Labs but that doesn't mean they are calm :lol: Assistance dogs near here tend to be Golden Retrievers crossed with Poodles rather than Labradors, as the lady who trains them says they are more biddable. As ever there is difference between show and working lines, both in size and colour (workers are smaller and tea-coloured) and temperament (workers are as you would expect more intelligent and in need of a job to do).

Working goldens are really hard to find. Working labs are everywhere.
