Golden Retrievers are the most popular and recognizable dog breeds developed in the United Kingdom. They are very intelligent, versatile, sophisticated and catch the training tips very easily and quickly.

Because of this nature these dogs can be recognized as excellent service dogs. These dogs are also known as natural athletes by having a long life span and they are excellent hunting companions to their owners. Retriever puppies are generally a quiet breed and they only bark occasionally when compared to other breeds.

Retriever puppies can be found in four different colors.

  1. Golden.
  2. Light Golden.
  3. Dark Golden.
  4. Cream Colour.

This color enhances and gets darker as the Retriever puppies grow into an adult dog.  Their fur  is so smooth and silky that it protects and coats the body parts from environmental conditions.

According to the Food and Drug Administration,  these foods are specially formulated  by keeping in mind the puppies and adult retriever dogs’ health, physical strength and their digestive functions.  As per my knowledge upon dogs and puppies,  they always love to eat new food with different tastes. So, these Foods  are best for shifting from one food to another without disturbing puppies’ digestive functions and without neglecting their health conditions.

I personally suggest everyone to always have an eye on a dog’s diet.  Because giving them raw and uncooked food can make them dull and sleepy.
