When it comes down to the temperament of the Corgi Golden Retriever mixes, it is worth taking a look at the temperament of their parents. So what does each parent bring to the table?
Corgis are protective, faithful, and fearless furry friends. The breed was originally developed to help in herding cattle. As such, the modern-day Corgi still retains the personality of a working dog. Today though, these fidos have acclimatized to being cheerful family pets.
At home, they are high spirited and involve themselves in almost every activity around them. One minute they will be playing with their toys and in the next, helping you cook. They pack so much energy in their small bodies that they can play with everybody in the family and not tire.
In the standard, Golden Retriever’s temperament is described as kind, confident, and friendly. Originally the breed was kept to track and retrieve downed wildfowl during hunting.
Without much hunting going on today, Retrievers are good at fetching things around the house- including your mail and paper. The breed also scores major points for being very trainable. They are the go-to breed for rescue operations as well as emotional support.
