Overview

Meet the Golden is the American Kennel Club’s first official publication on this ever-popular sporting breed, published in conjunction with the Golden Retriever Club of America. Meet the Golden presents accurate, authoritative information on all aspects of purchasing and owning the Golden Retriever, heavily illustrated with color images of well-bred puppies and beautiful adults. The book contains eleven detailed chapters devoted to the breed’s history, characteristics, and the special requirements for owning this versatile, active dog that excels in countless areas of work and sport. A chapter devoted to the purchase and selection of the Golden puppy gives the reader specific guidance on how to locate a qualified breeder and to recognize a healthy, sound puppy. Individual chapters on house-training and basic obedience serve as a crash course in positive-training techniques, the AKC’s recommended way of training dogs. Chapters on exercise, grooming, feeding, and healthcare present indispensable information for new dog owners.

As an official publication of the AKC, Meet the Golden also explains the many vital programs offered by the country’s leading canine organization to all pet dog owners, including the S.T.A.R. Puppy and the Canine Good Citizen programs. The final chapter offers owners over a dozen ways to get active with their Golden Retrievers, including the various dog sports sponsored by the AKC, from conformation showing and obedience trials to agility, hunting tests, field trials and more. A detailed resources section offers recommendations for websites, books, periodicals, and club affiliate programs, all of great interest to responsible new dog owners.
