About Us

Golden Retriever Society About Us

Do you love golden retrievers? We do, and that is why we started Golden Retriever Society! Helping our four legged family members, and the people who love them is our passion.

We strive to bring helpful information and resources to golden retriever families everywhere. Our articles cover health and nutrition, training, products and services, and just about anything else golden retriever related.

Our staff of experienced Veterinarians are consulted on many of our articles, and often write the articles themselves. Dr. Traas, Dr. Jondle, Dr. Irish, and Dr. Brooks all love caring for dogs, but just as important, they love educating their owners.
