Opinion on our dog

805 15
Hi there,

We have a one year old golden and we love him very much! We have no intentions at all to show him but wanted to get the forum's opinoin if our dog is more the confirmation look or more of the field golden look. We were just wondering what kind of look he had.

Thanks so much!!1 View attachment 897964

He looks like a mix of the two to me. My puppy's sire was half and half and your dog really looks a lot like him. He's more fluffy like a confirmation dog but has a face shape of the field goldens I've seen.

I think he's show pedigree with just not a great headpiece. Do you have his pedigree?

So his father's title was gch ch. HIs paternal grandfather was a amGCH and his paternal grandmother was an amCH. His mother was never competed but his maternal grandfather was a GCH and his maternal grandmother was a CH. not sure if this helps.

We have always been told that his body is that of a pedigree dog but his nose was little too long.

in your opinion, for an average every day pet, should we be happy with our dog and his look ?

Based on the above, it should be obvious that you have a show bred golden.

Why are you asking if he is a show or field bred dog???

Separately - been biting my tongue all day on this trying to figure out a good way to ask, but does your dog lick his feet? He looks like he has yeasty paws + there's a rub spot on his muzzle.

A pedigree dog...Just FYI, literally every dog in existence can be a pedigreed dog. A pedigree is simply a family tree. Even doodles have a pedigree, since it's just the accounting of whom the parents/grands/greatgrands are, even if they are different breeds.

he got those markings on his nose one random day afte day care. He never had them before and we were not sure if it was from rough play or not. It went away after a week and we have never seen it again. Any thoughts on what it could be ?

Your bigger issue is the yeasty feet. His feet should not have red in between the toes like that. Start putting apple cider vinegar in his water - 2 or 3 tablespoons will do it for a big bowl. It will help, but may not eliminate the problem.

Also would you mind sharing his parents' registered names?
