Golden Retiever vs Labrador Retriever. Why one over the other?

asked 2015-04-20 17:57:30 -0500

Curious why people have a preference for one over the other. To me, they are somewhat the same minus the hair, but I could be naive which is why I ask the question.

Although both retrievers, Labradors and Golden's were bred for different purposes this enhancing certain personality traits. Golden's although a sport dog tend to be less energetic than labradors. Labradors were originally bred to be sport ad hunting dogs and may have higher energy levels.

In my opinion they have a similar personality and like you said it's probably a preference on long vs short hair and how they look. This is a interesting comparison of the two: http://dogs.petbreeds.com/compare/75-95/Golden-Retriever-vs-Labrador-Retriever (http://dogs.petbreeds.com/compare/75-...)
