Mother's Little Helpers: my Golden Retrievers
In this video we can see four Golden Retrievers that help a lady to bring home the shopping bags, some products seem really heavy (such as detergents) but our furry friends can transport them without problems. For Golden Retrievers retrieving is an art, in fact for them is not just a job... it is something more; they are called "dogs from soft mouth" just because in ancient times when they were used for hunting these were able to bring the birds without damaging it in any way.
Although nowadays the Goldens are not used for hunting there are activities that enhance their ability to carry such as "retrieving": a sort of obedience and carry competitions that unfortunately here in Italy are not widely known.
Although Goldens and Labradors are the breeds that are mainly used for these games we should not forget that all the other elements of the family of Retrievers are valid retrievers, these are: the Flat-Coated, Chesapeake Bay, Curly Coated and Nova Scotia Duck Tolling; unfortunately to see the majority of these breeds you have to go abroad (mainly in the UK) because in Italy are really rare.
