Description

The Golden Mountain Dog is not a purebred dog. It is a cross between the Golden Retriever and the Bernese Mountain Dog. The best way to determine the temperament of a mixed breed is to look up all breeds in the cross and know you can get any combination of any of the characteristics found in either breed. Not all of these designer hybrid dogs being bred are 50% purebred to 50% purebred. It is very common for breeders to breed multi-generation crosses.

Quincy the Golden Mountain Dog at 1 year old—"We adopted Quincy from a home-breeder. His mom was half Bernese and half Retriever and his dad was pure Bernese (3/4 Bernese Mountain Dog 1/4 Golden Retriever), so as you can imagine, Quincy wasn't cheap. Most of his siblings had the Bernese markings, while Quincy and one of his sisters were pure black. None of them were gold, so I don't know why the breeders called them Golden Mountain Dogs haha. Currently, Quincy weighs about 80 pounds, and can rest his font paws on my shoulders quite comfortably and I am around 5' 7". This dog is amazing and perfect, but I can't say that for the breed as a whole, because, for one, I know that his brother has some behavior issues, and he is the only one of his kind that I have spent time with. But Quincy definitely got the best of both worlds. He is super smart, extremely loyal and eager to please, so training him is a breeze. Currently, I am training him some tricks and skills that service dogs know and use for a school project, and he is learning so quickly. Quincy's temperament is amazing, he is so laid back and easy going. He has only growled at our other dog, a Springer Spaniel who is older then him and very high strung, otherwise he just loves other dogs and has a blast at the dog park. All this dog wants is love and food."

Dog Breed Info side note: A dog's temperament is a direct reflection of its owner’s ability to understand him and give him what he instinctually needs as a canine animal, not on the breed or mix of breeds in a dog.
