Golden Retriever

Nothing brightens your day quite like the sunny smile of a Golden Retriever. Another American favorite, the Golden generally gets along with everyone. These adaptable dogs have an eager-to-please nature that makes training them a pleasure. You'll need to teach your kids the right way to interact with dogs so that the exuberant play of the Golden (who can weigh 55 to 75 pounds) doesn't overwhelm them.
