The popularity of dogs as a well-loved addition to the family has skyrocketed over the past years, especially in the country. According to a survey conducted by Rakuten in 2021, the Philippines ranked the highest in dog ownership in Asia at 67 percent.
Pets are certainly an adored additional member of many Filipino families. Dogs, moreover, are therapeutic for minds in distress, with their outgoing temperament providing a joyous and playful companion.
Playfulness while being gentle, adaptability while being fiercely loyal—these are some of the top qualities of an ideal family pet, and the beloved Golden Retriever has these and more.
Considered among the most popular dog breeds in the Philippines and the world, Golden Retrievers have always enjoyed a reputation as great family pets.
In celebration of National Golden Retriever Day last Feb. 3, Vista Mall Dasmariñas gathered a pack of Golden Retrievers and fur parents at the Retrievers Meetup. The paw-tastic event was filled with golden moments through furricatures, a pet buffet, and games with puptastic perks from PetBuddy and its event partners.
Many Goldens wore special outfits for the big day, accessorizing with bandannas and other trinkets, with friendships formed among Goldens and owners alike.
