About Goldens. A Golden Retriever lying in a puddle. Golden Retrievers are very good family dogs because they extremely sweet and gentle with young children and do not bark very much. They are known for having a "soft mouth," and some have even been seen carrying raw eggs in their mouth without breaking them.Should I get a golden retriever or Border Collie?
Border collies are very loyal, energetic, and healthy dogs with more life span than the Golden retriever. If you are an inexperienced dog breeder and never pet any dog, it is recommended to go for a Golden retriever instead of a Border collie. Both these dogs are purebred and recognized by the American kennel club.
