Welcome to Kenzanne Golden Retrievers. Kenzanne specialises in the breeding and showing of pure bred Golden Retrievers.
The Golden Retriever is a SPECIAL breed of dog. It was developed in Scotland and England in the late 19th Century as a gun dog, for the purpose of retrieving wild fowl on land or water. It's physical characteristics and its willing, adaptable, trainable nature make it suitable for many purposes.
The Golden Retriever is a “natural” dog needing no surgical alterations to ears or tails, and no exotic grooming (as opposed to some terriers, poodles, etc.). Basic grooming for a Golden should take no more than 20 to 30 minutes a week.
The mature male Golden is ideally 22 to 24 inches at the shoulder, and weighs 32 to 37 kgs. Bitches, 20 to 22 inches, and weight 27 to 32 kgs.
The Golden has a temperament that is adaptable and kind. The head is broad, with well proportioned, well set on ears, and a kind expression.
The Golden is easy to train and makes an excellent family dog. They are patient and gentle, making them wonderful companions for children. Golden retrievers are happiest when spending time with their family or when fetching and caring for their master. They also make excellent guard dogs.
Golden Retrievers are active dogs that need daily outdoor exercise and human contact. Goldens need daily outdoor exercise to maintain physical and mental health. As such they are not suited to apartment living
The coat, which is one of the hallmarks of the breed, is a “double coat” with a thick, weather proof top coat, and a dense, soft undercoat. There are featherings of longer hair on the backs of the legs, on the front of the neck and chest, and on the tail. The adult coat may range in colour from a cream to dark gold, and the darker Golden can have a lighter feathering.
