Golden Retrievers are quite smart and have a desire to please their owners.  Originating in Scotland, the Golden Retriever was bred to create a dog that had great skills in retrieval and was well acclimated to the weather and types of game available.  The Golden Retriever is actually a cross of a few breeds including the Irish Setter, Bloodhound, and Tweed Water Spaniel.
