A brief presentation of the Golden Indian Dog

Intelligent and loyal, the Golden Indian Dog is a hybrid breed developed from the Golden Retriever and the Native American Indian Dog. This breed is not known for being a nuisance barker, and only barks when necessary. Its moderate energy levels mean it won't dig holes in the yard out of boredom and prefers to stay by your side. The Golden Indian Dog is thought to have been born out of a desire to create healthier hybrids. This docile dog is known to be a powerful watchdog as well as an excellent companion. The average Golden Indian Dog weighs from 25 to 54.5 kilos and measures 58.5 to 86 centimeters.

History of the Golden Indian Dog

The Golden Indian Dog is a blend of the gentle Golden Retriever and the intelligent Native American Indian Dog.

 

        

A little of the Golden Retriever

        
The Golden Retriever is said to have been developed in Victorian times from the traits of the Tweed Water Spaniel, Yellow Retriever, Wavy-coated Retriever, Flat-coated Retriever and Red Setter. Lord Tweedmouth, a baron in Scotland, is often credited with breeding the Golden Retriever with a female Tweed Water Spaniel. In 1911, the England Kennel Club classified the breed as a Yellow or Golden Retriever. In 1925, the breed was officially registered with the American Kennel Club, but not officially recognized until 1932. The Golden Retriever is a popular family dog and has appeared in numerous Hollywood films such as Air Bud and Homeward Bound.
Standard of the Golden Retriever

A little of the Native American Indian Dog

The Native American Indian Dog comes in two distinct sizes, two distinct coat lengths and two distinct coat color combinations. They range from silver to black to tortoiseshell coats. Dogs with tortoiseshell coats are considered sacred to Native Americans. The coat can be short and dense, with two thick layers, the undercoat of which is impermeable to wind and water, to a long-haired overcoat with a dense undercoat. The ears are prickly and upright, the head broad between the eyes, with an angular head that tapers to a slender muzzle. Eyes range from brown to amber. They are almond-shaped, with a sparkle of intelligence looking out at the world. The tail can be tightly curled as in an Alaskan Malamute or Siberian Husky, but preferred breed standards tend towards a long, held tail with sometimes a slight bend or curve at the end.

Appearance of the Golden Indian Dog

The Golden Indian Dog is a hybrid breed developed from the Golden Retriever and the Native American Indian Dog. Because of the different parent breeds, your dog's size and build can vary considerably. The breed has a muscular, athletic build with strong, powerful legs. Its folded ears are set high on its head like the Golden Retriever. Its round, dark eyes show an air of friendliness, and its nose is brown or black. His muzzle is of medium length, like that of the Golden Retriever. His coat can vary from short to medium and the colors often seen are brown, tan, gold and black. Its expression is one of regal elegance.

Temperament of the Golden Indian Dog

The personality of the Golden Indian Dog will vary according to the dominant traits it inherits from its parent breeds, the Golden Retriever and the Native American Indian Dog. This breed tends to be docile, calm, responsive, friendly and incredibly intelligent. Its intelligent nature makes training relatively simple, as it will be receptive to learning. The Golden Indian Dog's disposition makes it an excellent companion for families with young children. He's also a protector and will be wary of strangers, although socialization from an early age should remedy this. Positive reinforcement will work wonders with him, and he'll appreciate recognition for his efforts. This breed is not known for being a nuisance barker, and barks only occasionally and when necessary. Its moderate energy level will require at least two walks a day to keep it busy, healthy and happy.

Needs and activities of the Golden Indian Dog

The Golden Indian Dog has a moderate energy level and will thrive on at least 45 minutes of activity a day. Very sociable in general, he'll be happy to accompany you wherever you go, taking the time to get to know those he meets. The dog park can become his favorite place, as it's a secure environment where he can have the freedom to run and play. Apartment living is not ideal; a house with a fenced-in yard is always best for this hybrid, who loves fresh air and enjoys several outdoor breaks a day. Being highly intelligent and agile, additional activities for him can be agility training or obedience trials.

Maintenance of the Golden Indian Dog

The Golden Indian Dog is not considered a hypoallergenic breed, but generally has low shedding levels throughout the year. Although its hair can vary in length, brushing once a week with a pin brush should be enough to keep it looking good. During periods of heavy shedding, you can try the detangler, which should help the grooming process go more smoothly. Your Golden Indian Dog's ears should be checked regularly to make sure there's no build-up of dirt or moisture. To avoid costly dental work, brush his teeth every few days. Trim nails as needed, usually once or twice a month, depending on the rate of growth.
