Could a Golden Retriever be happy in a flat?

In one of my previous questions, I asked you guys if you think a cat would be happy in a flat. Thank you for your answers btw.

I'm a huge pet lover, and although I'm thinking of getting a cat, I was also wondering if it was possible to have a Golden Retriever in an apartment? What do you think?

Any dog ​​is possible in an apartment after you have to take into account your way of life and not leave your dog alone for 8 hours. If it is a puppy you must remember that he has to be toilet trained and this means taking him out every 3 hours including in the night. If it's a Golden Retriever you are looking to get, you will HAVE to take him out very often and take him on long walks, provide plenty of activities (physical and mental) as they like being outdoors and learning new things.

Being a huge Golden retriever lover, I can tell you: yes of course you can have a golden retriever in an apartment. But as Ellie said, you will have to take him out regularly and not leave your dog alone for more than 8 hours a day. Provide plenty of stimulation, physical activities and everything will be alright ! I wish you years of happiness with your doggie!

Hello, yes, I agree with the answers above! you can have a Golden in your apartment, I had one and she was not unhappy. I took her out at least four times a day and on weekends I would take her on a long walk in the forest near our home when the weather was good. No worries about the apartment. Golden Retrievers are very adaptable! I hope I answered your question. Good luck!

In my opinion, having a Golden Retriever in an apartment is not the best. They weigh between 50 and 70 pounds and need to exercise like any dog ​​of that size. Golden Retrievers love outdoor activites like agility or running and love to have fun with their owners. Unless you really have a large apartment, I advise you, if you really want a dog, to adopt a smaller dog, or even a "toy dog". But some people say they have Goldens and everything is going well so it's up you to really...
