As you probably want golden retriever as home and not as hunting dog. You just have to choose a wonderful and friendly puppy. You should be careful with the too aggressive puppies, especially with the little nervous golden retrievers.

After you think over all of these factors you should have already taken many important decisions about your choice. You have chosen golden retriever which means that you know exactly what you want from a dog and what is the best breed for you and your family, your way of life.

Another important aspect of choosing a puppy is its family tree or register certificate. People often mistake them. Family tree of your puppy is just a document of its ancestors two or three generations back. Your breeder or seller should give you a register identifying documents for your puppy: it’s breed, sex, color, date of birth, names and register numbers of its parents.

These are the most important things you should consider when buying a golden retriever puppy. It should be clear that it is a great responsibility to have a dog at home and some people even compare it to having a baby.
