What is a Show Golden Retriever?

Ah, the Show Golden Retriever, also sometimes called Conformation Retrievers. 

These dogs are sought after for their lovely appearances and how well they perform in dog shows.

Basically, a Show Golden is a natural variation of the Golden Retriever breed. Show Goldens gained their namesake as a result of, well, their competition standards.

History of Show Golden Retrievers

All Show Golden Retrievers have been bred to meet exact breed expectations. They are quite remarkable in appearance and have wonderful coats.

The original Goldens came to be as a result of cross-breeding between various different breeds (including: Water Spaniels, Yellow Retrievers, Irish Settlers, and Bloodhounds) over several generations. Over time, the 3 main subtypes emerged: American Golden Retrievers, Canadian Golden Retrievers, and British (English) Golden Retrievers. 

In other words, all Golden Retriever subtypes (including the British Golden subtype), are members of the same family, or breed. The Show Goldens belong to any of the 3 of the Golden subtypes.

Show Golden Retriever Temperament

It’s no surprise that Show Golden Retrievers make lovely pets. Why? Because their temperament is friendly, fun-loving, and obedient just like normal Goldens. These pups are known for being loyal, eager to please, and attentive. 

Like all Goldens, they are playful and excitable. In short, their great, balanced temperament makes them a great addition to any home!

Frequently Asked Questions About Show Golden Retriever Puppies

How much does a Show Golden Retriever cost?

In general, you can expect to pay anywhere from $1,000 to $4000+ for a show Golden Retriever puppy–and while that may seem like a large range, there are reasons for that. 

Cheaper doesn’t mean better, or even comparable. In fact, cheaper puppies are more likely to come from puppy mills or low quality breeders, where they aren’t adequately cared for, and are oftentimes sold to families without having received proper veterinary care and checkups beforehand. 

Oftentimes, cheaper golden retriever puppies can ultimately cost you a LOT more money in the long run because they are more likely to have health issues.

Here at My Golden Retriever Puppies, our adorable adoptees (including our Show Goldens) typically range from $1,800 and $4,000; even though our price points may be higher than some others, our price truly reflects the quality and care that is taken of our puppies.

Are Show Goldens more calm?

When compared to other subtypes of Golden Retrievers, the main difference is simply their training and appearance (plus care requirements).

In our experience, your individual puppy’s temperament will be the main factor in how calm your new golden retriever puppy will be.
