What Are Some Traits of a Chocolate Labrador and Golden Retriever Mix?

A chocolate Labrador and golden retriever mix, also known as a golden Labrador retriever, has a coat of medium length that is water-resistant. It is likely to be a chocolate-brown color, but it can also appear golden. These dogs have thick, black noses and wide muzzles. Golden Labradors love water, and, for this reason, the coat is water-resistant and simple to groom.

Golden Labrador retrievers have an approximate life expectancy of 10 to 15 years and normally grow to be 22 to 24 inches tall and between 60 to 80 pounds.

The golden Labrador retriever tends to be an intelligent, friendly and gentle dog. With proper, consistent training and exercise, it can be suitable for apartment life, but this mixed breed thrives with a yard and room to run. The golden Labrador tends to be easy to train and great with children. The dogs are often chosen as family and guide dogs.

As with any mixed breed, it is difficult to know the specific characteristics an individual dog may possess. The golden Labrador should be trained from an early age to prevent behavioral problems later in life. This dog loves exercise and makes an excellent companion while running, jogging, biking or hiking.

The golden Labrador retriever is also known as the goldador retriever.
