Any idea why you folks have more golden retrievers than anything else? Are they better avalanche dogs, or was it luck of the draw?

The avalanche dogs are owned personally by individual patroller/handlers. Ultimately selection of dog breed is made by the handler. A lot of people think golden retrievers make great avalanche dogs. The dogs are frequently around people. A good natured dog, like a golden retriever, is helpful. While she isn't an avalanche dog, I have a 14 year golden retriever. They are just really nice animals to be around. Many other breeds do make good avalanche dogs.
