Golden Retrievers For Dummies. For the past decade, the Golden Retriever has ranked among the five most popular breeds registered with the AKC, with more than 65,000 Goldens registered every year. The Golden Retriever’s personality is as golden as his outer coat. He was bred to please, and please he does. He started out as a hunting partner who delivered birds to hand and has evolved into modern times delivering whatever suits his owner’s fancy. Because Golden Retrievers were originally bred to work in tandem with humans, they are also highly trainable.

This book - the one published in 2000 - has some good general information about Golden Retrievers, but it really needs to be updated. The author does not sufficiently address the topic of cancer in this breed. She also makes claims that are widely disputed today, She writes, for example, that there is a health benefit to spaying/neutering early (in females before their first estrus).

Don't bother with the mini edition. If you have any interest in Goldens you likely already know everything it contains. Just buy the full print version which has much useful information.

Thank You Nona Bauer!! I raised my 8 week old puppy, from Siever's Retrievers in IL, from your book Golden Retrievers for Dummies. The most VALUABLE and IMPORTANT was Saying Good-bye. On Dec. 29, 2014 I had to make that decision completely as I have no family. My female Vet. came to my home 4 days after Christmas (with a newborn & toddler at home) and agreed that it was Tinsel's time for the Rainbow Bridge. Dr. Sarah returned a little later. Tinsel left this earth in our home and in my arms. Thank You so much for the wisdom I highlighted when Tinsel was only an 8 week old puppy. Nona Kilgore Bauer I have always wanted to say THANK YOU!!!!!! Tinsel's Mommy

We just got a new Golden Retriever Puppy and he is a handful! This book is most helpful.

This is our second Golden Retriever, but one cannot compare them. Our first Golden Boy was a calm dog, even as a puppy. Our current little guy is very lively, hence this great book is a constant companion for me. Here is hoping........ :o)

This was the second book I read before we took home our golden retriever puppy, I read another basic puppy book beforehand. I found it average in the information department. Most of it was spot on though and well written. It gave a lot of good advice about how to care for a young baby puppy.

I really liked that there is considerable amount of the book devoted into "how to choose your puppy" which is detailing the work and money of a puppy/dog, making sure a golden retriever is for you, choosing a breeder, and choosing the puppy itself. Everyone wants a golden retriever for obvious reasons, but they are BIG dogs that need alot of space and LOTS of attention and excercise and the author really hits this point home. They are also prone to lots of long term issues such as cancer and hip disease.

She does provide excellent breeder red flags and such, but it is sooooo hard to find a breeder that meets all of the "godly" attributes without knowing someone in the inner circle and I find it a tad frustrating that so many dog people profess these rules about breeders but so few of them actually exist and the dog demand is so high. You just don't want to get a dog from a puppy mill/mail order online, but you know, a back yard breeder or pound puppy isn't the worst thing either IMHO as long as you understand the risks.

The rest of the first half of the book provides excellent puppy stages information and what to expect and basic ways to deal with your puppy growing up. I found that part very helpful and probably one of the better descriptions out there and referred back to it as our little fluff ball grew up.

The second half of the book (after the 3-6 month puppy stage) was too watered down for me and not very helpful. The training section in particular was pretty weak, you should really buy a dog training specific book, scour the interent for top rated positive approach trainers such as Sophia Yin (i.e. not Cesar Milan who is almost universally abhorred by all animal behaviorists and most trainers) or go to a class to really understand how to train your dog in a positive way if you're a novice. In fact I'm not sure I did anything but skim the second half of the book.

I also was hoping for some more dog behavior information, but if you want that read Patricia McConnels "The Other End of the Leash" or Jean Donaldson's "Culture Clash," both are excellent books on dog behavoir and understanding how to find that nice blend of dog behavior vs human approved behavior in your dog.

This book - the one published in 2000 - has some good general information about Golden Retrievers, but it really needs to be updated. The author does not sufficiently address the topic of cancer in this breed. She also makes claims that are widely disputed today, She writes, for example, that there is a health benefit to spaying/neutering early (in females before their first estrus). Many vets now believe this is untrue and that early spaying is actually harmful.

This reference book was really informational. It did however focus a lot of it on a golden retreiver puppy or how to take care of one. If you already have a grown golden retriever, I don't think this book is right for you, but it's still good at looking at health tips and information.

There are a lot of instances in the book where the author makes her own comments, as if she is talking. If that will bother you, then don't get this book.

It's a really good book if you are deciding to get a Golden Retriever puppy or new dog because it gives you fundamental things to know for taking care of a puppy or new dog coming home. I think a person should read this book before getting a dog or golden retriever because it does help educate you to learn more on the breed. However, this book is mostly generalized stuff that you can already search on the internet or online resources.

I think this book was very helpful, so I think you should get it if you have no idea on how to take care of a dog.

See ya!

I purchased this book used on Amazon shortly after I got my new golden retriever puppy, Maggie. Having wanted a golden retriever for as long as I can remember, I was so excited to bring her home even if it was in a small dilapidated cardboard box. After surviving 2 LOOONNNGGG days with a new puppy, thinking how I could have made such a mistake (at the time), I realized I needed some professional help. The book was very helpful and went on to describe issues goldens have, how to potty train, obedience train, crate train, proper food etc they need. what I really liked was not only needing puppy training like I did, I needed it to be golden retriever specific, and that it was. It tells you the types of health problems they're prone to, traits they have and things they're good at. I found it extremely helpful. I would definitely recommend it! In case you're wondering, Maggie is now a healthy, happy just had her first year birthday golden! Yeah we still have some things we need to work on, And as for me, I survived the first year!

excellent.
