Have you – or your children! – ever wondered why the word “retriever” is part of the name of some pup breeds? The answer is pretty simple – these pups were bred for the sole purpose of being able to retrieve fallen prey!
There is more to it than just breeding, of course – you still have to train them.
That said, inherent traits certainly help! Like just about any other pup, Samson the Golden Retriever loves playing fetch with Mom. He has a few things in his favor that make playing fetch a lot more interesting though – he’s got ton of energy to burn, and is bred for swimming in water!
This all means that he can play fetch across a huge multitude of landscapes – including in this lake he’s happily swimming across! You can see just how he is in his element here, and how sure his movements are. He literally was born to do this!
