Saying the English Cream Golden Retriever is a friendly breed is an understatement. They are generally good with strangers, tolerant with young kids, and good with other family pets.

The English Cream Golden Retriever will shed, but with proper grooming it can be controlled. Brush this breed at least every other day and trim their nails once a month. You should also look at brushing their teeth once a week to avoid the buildup of tartar. Handle your puppy’s paws regularly early in life to get them comfortable with general grooming.
High Energy is a word you will learn well with the English Cream Golden Retriever, but take it in stride. Much like the Labrador, it will wind down as it moves into adulthood and settles into your lifestyle well. But make sure you take him for a walk every day as he needs this to be balanced. And your Golden Retriever will always love a good game of fetch.
The English Cream Golden Retriever will range from 20 to 25 inches tall and weigh from 60 to 80 pounds.
