Golden Retrievers Breeding
The main prerequisite for the emergence of the breed was the great passion of the English leaders for hunting. In the 19th century, the main pastime of the English and Scottish zen was hunting game and duck hunting. Honorable peers disappeared for days in the forests and swamps, boasting of their trophies, weapons and, of course, dogs. However, if the gentlemen were in full order with the hounds, the four-legged hunters who could find a quail in the heather bushes or swim after a duck that had fallen into the lake were in great shortage. Commercial demand created supply, and soon furry dogs with an unusual gold coat began to be studied in the valleys of Scotland.The emergence of Golden Retrievers as an independent breed is linked to Dudley Marjoribanks, a Scottish sire and part time breeder. It was he who showed the world a completely new breed of hunting dog that is not afraid of water and deftly carries a padded bird. Until the middle of the 20th century, it remained a secret for a long time, after which the secret records of genealogy books became public. As it turns out, Goldens were given their genes by the Water Tweed Spaniel, Labrador Retriever, Bloodhound, and Straight-haired Retriever.Until the 20s of the last century, the breed was quite popular not only in Europe, but also among breeders of the New World. Additionally, the USA and Canada have established their own standards for the appearance of Golden Retrievers. Therefore, for example, individuals with denser and darker hair color abroad were preferred.
