Golden Retrievers were originally bred in Scotland in the mid-19th century. They were used to help wealthy Scots hunt on land and sea. Today, Golden Retrievers are the third most popular dog in the United States. Golden Retrievers are so popular in part because they are obedient and easy to train. That's why Golden Retrievers are often used as a guide dog for the blind, hearing dog for the deaf, hunting dog, detection dog, and search and rescue participant. These dogs are energetic and need at least two hours of exercise each day. Golden Retrievers love water. Their outer coat lies flat against their bodies and repels water. That's what's so funny about this video.
