English Cream Golden Retriever

English Cream Golden Retriever Feature

The English cream golden retriever is a medium-sized retriever dog native to Scotland. English cream golden retrievers aren’t a separate breed of retriever, but a name for a specific coat color. These dogs are also known by other names, including platinum retriever, rare white European retriever, white retriever, and white golden retriever.

These retrievers are between 23 and 25 inches tall and weigh anywhere between 55 and 75 pounds. Dogs of this breed are athletic, well-built, and energetic. These dogs are used for hunting and working in the field.

These dogs are a great addition to an active family living in a house with access to a large outdoor space. The dogs are kind, playful, loyal, and protective. However, English cream golden retrievers may not be the best dogs for those living in an apartment because of their loud and energetic personality that demands a lot of attention and exercise.

English Cream Golden Retriever Appearance

The English cream golden retriever is a medium-sized dog known for its light-colored fur, giving the dog its name. These retrievers have characteristics such as hanging ears, intelligent eyes, and a powerful body covered with a thick to medium coat. The dogs’ tails are long, fluffy, and feather-like. English cream retrievers also have a confident and graceful gait.

Height and Weight

The English cream golden retriever can be anywhere between 21 and 25 inches tall at the shoulder, depending on gender and genetics. These dogs weigh up to 75 pounds, on average.

These retrievers reach their adult size by the age of two. By the age of three months, puppies typically weigh between 15 and 25 pounds, and by the age of six months, between 30 and 45 pounds. By the time the dog is one year old, it weighs between 50 and 70 pounds.


The English cream golden retriever has a luxurious light-colored coat. The dog’s coat has two layers— a thicker and harsher top coat, and a soft and fluffy undercoat. However, the retriever sheds a lot, which means that the owner needs to groom the dog regularly and frequently brush it to avoid having dog hair around the house.

The colors of the English cream golden retrievers’ coats are usually very light, ranging from pure white to light cream. These retrievers don’t have much variation in coloring. Retrievers with darker fur, such as the Black Golden Retriever, aren’t considered English cream

English Cream Golden Retriever Origins

English cream golden retrievers originate from the United Kingdom, like all golden retrievers. The first mentions of golden retrievers date back to the early 19th century in Scotland — where these dogs were bred for hunting. Golden retrievers were bred as a result of the crossing between flat-coated retrievers and spaniels to create a dog capable of hunting both in water and on land.

In the 19th century, English cream golden retrievers came to be recognized as a variation of the golden retriever based on their light cream color growing increasingly more popular. The white golden retriever was officially recognized as a variation of golden retriever in the early 20th century based on its color.

Retrievers are a playful breed, who are at their happiest while out playing with their owner.

English Cream Golden Retriever Personality and Temperament

The English cream golden retriever is a highly energetic and outgoing dog, that is perfect for large families or people living an active lifestyle. This dog is a great companion for hikes, walks, and other outdoor adventures.

These retrievers fit in well into big families with kids of any age. Dogs of this breed are considered family dogs because of their affectionate and loving nature, and instinct to care for and protect young children. English cream golden retrievers are also friendly with strangers and other dogs, and typically feel comfortable in large groups of people.

However, English cream golden retrievers can become a burden to owners who dare unable to match the dogs social and exercise needs. English cream golden retrievers can start feeling depressed in a limited space, which can lead to health issues or unusual behaviors. Because these dogs are highly adaptable and trainable, they can become great apartment dogs with proper training and socialization.

Taking Care of an English Cream Golden Retriever Dog

The English cream golden retriever is an intelligent and energetic dog that demands a lot of mental stimulation, socialization, and exercise. This retriever also requires a balanced diet consisting of a combination of dry and fresh foods. The retriever’s grooming needs are moderate and easy to handle for even a novice dog owner.

Food Needs

The English cream golden retriever is a medium-sized dog that requires two to three cups of food every day to maintain a healthy weight and energy levels. Avoid free-feeding an English cream golden retriever because these dogs are prone to overeating. Instead, measure one to one and a half cups of dog food to be fed to the dog twice a day, or give the retriever smaller portions three times a day.

English cream golden retrievers need high-quality dry foods with all the necessary vitamins and minerals included. Provide the dog with a combination of premium kibble and varied fresh foods — including proteins like meat and fish, as well as fresh vegetables.

Grooming Needs

The English cream golden retriever’s grooming needs are quite easy to handle even for an inexperienced owner. These dogs need to be brushed at least three times a week because they have a long coat that’s easily tangled. Regular brushing also helps to reduce the amount of shedding and keep the home space clean from dog hair. It’s best to bathe the English cream golden retriever once a month, or as it gets dirty from playing outside.

Exercise Needs

The English cream golden retriever needs at least one hour of active exercise every day, which can be broken down into two 30-minute walks or a long one-hour walk. In addition to that, the dog needs an additional 15–30 minutes of playtime each day to satisfy its social needs.

Because this breed needs high levels of activity, English cream golden retrievers would feel comfortable living in a large house with access to a garden, or, if living in an apartment, in the proximity of a spacious park.

Mental Needs

English cream golden retrievers can be prone to boredom, so a lot of social and intellectual activity is needed to keep them engaged. Owners can provide their dogs with a variety of different toys and play different games with them. Some of the best toys for a golden retriever are ball launchers, puzzle toys, and floating toys if the dog plays in water. Retrievers also benefit from meeting other dogs and people, helping them to become more socialized.

Common Health Concerns

English cream golden retrievers tend to suffer from a number of genetic diseases. A common health problem for this breed is hip and elbow dysplasia, which can develop into painful conditions that limit the dog’s mobility. These conditions are treated with complex and costly surgery. When purchasing a golden retriever, make sure to ask the breeder for a certificate showing that the puppy’s parents aren’t suffering from joint problems.

Other common health issues for English cream golden retrievers are eye problems, such as retinal dysplasia and glaucoma, that may lead to vision loss. These diseases are hard to treat and diagnose because retinal dysplasia does not cause the dog any pain. However, early diagnosis of these eye diseases increases the likelihood of successful treatment and the prevention of blindness.

How to Train an English Cream Golden Retriever

English cream golden retrievers are very easy to train because they are intelligent, energetic, and keen on pleasing their owners. Positive reinforcement and rewards work well to provide motivation for dogs during training. Punishment does not work well with this breed. Retrievers learn especially well through games that keep them entertained.

The best time to start training an English cream golden retriever puppy is at eight weeks of age. Start training by regularly walking the puppy and introducing it to many new places, people, and other dogs. This socialization can help the puppy get used to social interactions from an early age, preventing social fears and anxieties. Start with potty training and leash training when the golden retriever is a puppy.

English Cream Golden Retriever Price

The English cream golden retriever is a more expensive variation of golden retriever because of the color, and because these dogs are bred in the United Kingdom and are shipped to the US. The price can vary based on many factors, including the reputation of the breeder, the age of the dog, and its lineage.

How Much is an English Cream Golden Retriever?

An English cream golden retriever costs anywhere between $1,000 and $3,500. The most expensive dogs will come from the most reputable breeders and have the best lineage. A rescue dog, though rare to find, will end up costing between $100 and $300.

It’s best to purchase an English cream golden retriever puppy from a breeder with a good reputation because the breeder will invest in the health of the parents and offspring. By choosing a reputable breeder, the chances of purchasing a puppy with a predisposition to serious health conditions are significantly decreased.

How Much Does it Cost to Raise an English Cream Golden Retriever?

Raising an English cream golden retriever can be quite expensive due to the dog’s food needs, the variety of toys needed to entertain, and veterinary clinic bills. In the first year of life, expect to pay between $2,000 and $3,000 for items such as a leash, collar, bowls, toys, dog shampoo, puppy food, health checks, vaccinations, and grooming. As the dog grows older, the costs are likely to decrease to $2,000 per year with food, toys, and vet clinic bills included.

  1. Good article that captures the Golden Retriever. However, the high price tag might get people looking for puppy mills. I had a beautiful boy that did not cost an arm and leg to purchase. Not being interested in a show dog, I searched rescues. The dogs may not be show structured, but the personality is still GR!

    • love my english cream he is four years old got him from a breeder in manitoba he is the second one we have had. lost the first 6 years old to cancer of the liver last fall. each dog has its own personality,

  2. Great article about English Cream Golden’s. I lost my 14 yr old American Golden in a July. I’ve found a reputable English Cream Golden breeder that I’ve been in contact with. I’m planning on a spring 2020 puppy if all goes well. The breeder has puppies available now ready for adoption in December but to soon after the loss of my Golden in July. The pups are really cute little fluff balls at 5 weeks old now.

  3. We have a beautiful one year female English cream. We had an American Golden years ago-loves him too! Difference in body shape is distinct. Same great personality as our other GR. Loves other dogs and friendly toward new people. Our English is very healthy, playful and extremely smart. She loves to eat everything. Diet is important. This breed is stockier and seems to look thick or a bit overweight. Good luck, and have fun with this beautiful breed!

  4. I rescued my four year old English golden female from Korea last march. She is a delight. She is a happy girl who loves people and demands a lot of loving. I’m very glad to have saved her as she is a beautiful dog who garners attention where ever we go!

    • Golden Retrievers are super-trainable and adaptable. In what respect do you mean a service dog? Like with any dog, their genetics, temperament and training will all contribute to their behavior.

      If you are asking a dog to carry out a particular job it’s essential to research the breeder in the first instance and explain your ultimate aims.

    • My service dog is a 2 year old English Cream. I did not get him for his coat, he could have been red for all I cared. I even asked for a female, but the service agency paired us up and we have been inseparable. He’s serious and knows his job. Yet, he’s not the smartest dog I’ve had, just a happy go lucky dog. I purposefully wanted a GR, because I need a dog who isn’t bored spending his life at my ankle and desiring to learn new things every 5 min (I’ve had Aussies and a Border Collie previously). I think their lack of focus on the world and instead on their handler makes them attentive to the job and great alert dogs (mine is an epileptic alert and response dog). His coat is a wavy cream (yes, he sheds like crazy) and he’s from a lineage without hip, knee or eye problems.

  5. We recently got a pup from Golden Creek in, NC. Our new girl, Cokie, doing a pretty good imitation of a perfect dog!

  6. I have a 2 year old English Cream. I hate to say, but I bought her online through a service. I really doubted it, but my friend had bought two of her siblings. They are perfect, I love the breed. This breed is mellow and loving and loyal. Not a mean bone in her body. Her name is Wynter and she is the color of snow with a hint of cream on her head. I absolutely love her. She is the most loving dog I have ever had!

  7. We just got one last night and will be bringing her home Monday or Tuesday! Dutchess Emmeline of Gaul is her official name “Emma” for short! We love her already and can’t wait to enjoy her as part of our family! 🙂

  8. I just purchased a English cream golden retriever a couple days ago and she is so lovable just having trouble with getting her walk with a leash. Any suggestions on how to get her to cooperate easier.

    • How old is your retriever? If she’s a puppy, she will understandably be wanting to explore the world around her. Ensure you take her to places where she can explore and sniff on a long line. When she’s a little more focused, that’s when you can work on leash training. It’s best having a treat pouch on your hip. Encourage her to stay close to you when walking by offering her treats. Slowly, she learns that being close by is a good place to be. You can reduce the amount of treats you give her as she progresses; leaving longer between treats. Yanking and correcting is totally ineffective at teaching leash manners so focus on helping her make positive associations about being close to you.

    • Hello, we are looking for english cream golden retreiver, can you please let me know where from you got yours?

      • I am in MA and have been looking for a cream golden also. Have not had much luck. Any suggestions of local breeders?

        • We have an English Cream GR, he is beautiful. We previously had two American GRs. Most definitely the BEST dogs! Our Ole came from a breeder in Rice Lake, WI. They are the most beautiful, well mannered, loving and smart dogs.

    • Just be persistent and do it every day inside or out! Consistently repeating the training (one word commands) start at six months of age.

  9. I have a 1 yr old English Cream Named Toby. He is beautiful sweet and loving. He is a bit of a handful with a great personality. My question is his stomach used to be light pink but it’s gotten very dark. I thought it was dirt but it’s not. Is this normal once they start to mature?

    • Have you changed his food recently or has anything changed in his environment? Is he showing any signs of allergy or irritation, like excessive licking or scratching? Is it just his skin or his fur too?

    • Our boy had a white (pink) belly when we bought him at almost ten weeks. The skin on his belly turned dark grey. He is now 9 1/2 months and beautiful. He weighs 70+ pounds and is in his second obedience training class. This dog requires lots of exercise and work.

  10. Our guy is 6 and he is our little man. He loves to play and be chased, while he walks every day in the summer he will actually go jump in the pool and swim laps. Rolling in puddles is also his favorite game. With food he can learn anything within 2/3 reps, with repeats every couple of days. If you find out what he wants to do and tell him to do it he the most obedient dog otherwise he will exercise his right to goof around. He is our best friend.

  11. I am on a list to be getting one of these dogs in a few weeks when they are ready to leave mama.

  12. We lost our sweet and beloved 13 year old GR in September, and have recently adopted an ECGR from the same breeder, hoping he would be as gentle, obedient and mellow. Maybe it’s because he’s only 8 weeks old and we use treats to positively train him. He’s learned to sit and to go to his bed, so we know he’s trainable. Yet he refuses to stop being disobedient, such as trying to scratch at, chew on and eat anything that’s not nailed down, including moss, pebbles, shoes, furniture, etc. We continually redirected him with his toys. Do you have ANY ideas or tips to help us help him grasp what is a toy/food and what isn’t his to chew on or eat?

    • At 8 weeks puppies are still using their mouths to explore their world – much like human babies do. This will last for a few months yet. You are absolutely right in your approach, you just need to keep showing him what is acceptable to grab with his mouth (food, toys etc) and what isn’t. This is also the time when growing an extra pair of eyes would be helpful. Sadly, it’s not possible, so try to puppy proof the areas he accesses as much as possible. So if there are areas where he can easily get at nonedible things outside, can you limit his access with barriers? The same for inside, can you limit what he accesses with baby gates etc? His space needs to have everything out of reach – it’s a lot of work initially, but the best option for his safety. He will get there – every puppy parent has felt like you have, but it just takes time for them to figure out their world and what is acceptable behaviour and what keeps them safe.

      • Thank you so much for your response and the great advice! Our puppy is 18 weeks old now, and with some extra patience from his family combined with your great recommendations, things have much improved! He definitely needs supervision but positive (treat) reinforcement works wonders! ECGR are wonderful family pets!

    • I’m going through the same thing with my 12 week old ECGR. She wants to eat everything on the ground and in the garden. I’m hoping she’ll grow out of this. I have a trainer coming over in a few days. I live in an area that doesn’t have training facilities nearby. Covid didn’t help.

  13. We have a 13 month old English Golden Retriever. She is a gentle soul. We got her from a family in Moreno Valley that had both the mother and father. Mother was from California and the father was from Texas. The first few months were tough for potty training but a doggy door helped greatly. Things that a struggle include taking a bath and riding in the car. She is scared to death to get in the car or truck. Unlike our 13 year old golden we lost a year ago January. We have tried throwing ham and hot dogs in the car, no luck. Suggestions?

    • It takes a lot of patience to tackle the car sometimes. Start by just having the trunk open or just hanging around by the car. Sit by the car and just let your dog explore. Don’t have any expectations about being around the car, it’s just making positive associations. Open and close a door. Then offer her a treat. Then open and close another door. Place a bed by the car if possible and just let her be around it. Open and close the trunk. Reward her. Open and close the trunk again. Then leave the trunk open. Small behaviors are the way to go. Then one of you sit at the end of the tailgate, offer her a treat. Get up and walk off. Offer her a treat off the end of the tailgate. Cheese is a great one. Be patient and ask her for small behaviors in the right direction. She’ll get there. Once she is accepting getting into the car. Let he back out. Slowly build up her time in the car without even going for a journey. Then close the trunk. Open it again. Again, slowly build up her time with the trunk closed. Then when she is confident, start with short journeys. 1 minute, 2 minutes etc. Always reward her when she gets out no matter how short the journey.

  14. At this time my husband and I have 2 cream colored Goldens. They are Lucy (6-1/2 yrs) and Katie (10-1/2 yrs). Our first, Lilly, died of cancer when she was 8 yrs old. We were devastated as was the breeder. We get so much joy from our girls and so do our granddaughters.

  15. Great article! We just got a 3 month old “English Cream” puppy about a month ago. He has doubled in size and hasn’t even filled out his loose skin yet. It’s like trying to hold onto a 20lb fluffy slinky. He chews on anything the kids drop (and things he can reach) and is constantly stealing shoes to chew on. His movements are still just the goofiest thing you’ve ever seen and he cracks us up every minute of the day. As far as “Mud puddles” go, you can add flower beds, mulch and good old Dirt to the list. We often call him “Dirty Dog 2”. (Dirty Dog 1 is my Westie) He has just started to agree to cuddling since he prefers to play fight with our 7 month old “Meagle” (Min-pin/Beagle)

  16. We have not been without a Golden since 1976, have sometimes had 2-3 at a time. We always have a high quality vacuum. A month ago our Rescue put out a plea for a foster, 9 year old male. We drove the 3 hours, Comet was let out of the house on his leash and a bag was dropped in the driveway with food and meds. He was a beautiful English Cream, that we later found out was in his third home in a year. The next day we called the vet, very healthy with exception of sore hips, but most shocking, not 9 but 12! So our intent to foster and put up for adoption immediately stopped, he has joined the family.

    He is a wonderful, gentle old boy, He has made friends with everyone in our community, people can’t believe his ultra friendly personality. Golden’s are great, in 1976 I thought I bought a yellow lab, best mistake of my life, labs are great too.

  17. Our ECGR is 1 year old today and a lot of her crazy ways are mellowing out a little. She still eats everything in the yard (no illness from it) and isn’t too bad about digging holes. She hasn’t been sick from anything yet but I worry about things she eats…fabrics, plants, etc. Her size is so different from our other golden… she is very very long and limber. She’s a great dog!

  18. So we just picked up Pilot last week, he is a mellow, wonderful pup. 8 wks and 14.8 lbs. Feel like he is a very large pup, his feet are enormous. Wondering what your pups weighed in at at 8 weeks and how big did they end up?
    He was one of 12 pups and definitely one of the bigger pups.

    • We have a 12 week old girl who is 28lbs! She was 15lb at 8 weeks. I am wondering how big she’s going to be. Already difficult to pick her up. At times she’ll refuse to walk if she’s enjoying eating my yard and I have to pick her up. Lol. They are very smart!

  19. I have a 18 month old Female and Her 9 month old Brother from the same Parents. I live in Eastern Oregon and got them from a Breeder in Idaho. There are a few Breeders near Boise. They have a great bond and are inseparable. She treats Him like a Little Brother.

  20. My golden died after 13 years and we decided to get an English cream. I have noticed a big difference in the shedding I feel like the English cream sheds way way more.

  21. We were blessed with an English cream as a rescue. Purchased then neglected. He is an absolutely precious gentle giant, 100lb lap dog. Loves food and snuggles. Bayley is the president of the Fluffy Flufferz Cwub here in TN:) We had a blonde golden who lived to be 17. These are definitely angels among us.

  22. I have an English Cream female that is 15 months old. I have had her complete DNA testing done and she is cleared of all genetic health conditions that are common in the breed.
    I am planning to complete here health testing and being breeding her October 2021.
    I have a male English Cream Golden coming in mid December from the Ukraine. Both of his parents are also cleared. I have his DNA test kit from Embark waiting for him when he arrives. I am planning on doing his preliminary testing next September when I do my female’s officials when she is two years old. My male will be 14 months old. If all test come back good, I plan to begin breeding October/November 2021.
    I have been breeding animals since I was twelve years old and I showed and trained other dog breeds in the 1980’s. These are my first Golden’s so I’m still learning about them.

  23. Spot on 🐶 reading this article I thought it was written about our Finn 🐶 He is our 4th Golden and is absolutely my BFF🐶❤️🐶

  24. I have a Golden Mountain Dog puppy, and the mother was a English Creme. She behaves like and is built like her mother, but is black as night, like the Bernese papa. I fear I will have a super-shredder. 🙂

  25. We have one. He was 3 months old when we bought him as a gift for our daughter’s 7th birtday. They’ve been best friends ever since. We got him from an Amish breeder. His litter’s sell out in a day or two. This article’s author was spot on in the description of English Cream Golden Retrievers being terrific family pets and getting along great with other pets. This smart and playful dog has a gentle disposition. We also have three cats and they all get along great; however, he will eat their cat poop from time to time. As the article’s author mentioned, this breed will eat practically anything.

  26. We have a 8 week English Cream from a wonderful breeder in California (Grass Valley area). She is adorable. I found her through a childhood friend who also has a 4 yo from this breeder and her sister has another pup from her as well. Healthy, loved, responsible.

  27. We are enjoying our third Golden in the past 20 years. We have been lucky to adopt all three thru a wonderful rescue group in Ohio GRIN. Our current girl is a English Cream, Cheyenne, 6 and 1/2 years old. A rescue from a amish puppy mill, she was a breeding female. By state law in Ohio the mills have to stop breeding a dog at 6 years of age. She is the sweetest, gentlest dog I have ever had the pleasure to know. The sad part is what ever type of life she had in the mill has scared her terribly. She is afraid of everything. We have her now going on 8 months and work with her daily to try to teach her how to be the joyful dog we know she can be. She does not know how to play, unlike most Goldens throwing a tennis ball scares her. We hope to one day see her chase a tennis ball until then we go one day at a time. We just want to give her the best life possible. SO, Please look very carfully when looking at puppy mills, make sure they are taking good care of their breeding dogs and keeping them in humane conditions with social interaction. As a version of the Golden Retriever family we love our English Cream girl.

  28. Hi, we got our English Cream from a breeder in Houston, Texas. ALL of our previous dogs (mutts) we rescued from the streets after they were dumped. We loved EVERY one of them and were totally against BUYING any dog when there are so many shelter dogs. My husband always wanted a Golden Retriever and found our dog on Craigslist. We didn’t even know he was English Creme. They sold all 4 pups in one morning. OK, needless to say, this boy we named Mac is BEAUTIFUL.
    He’s naughty but nice. Very boisterous but loving to the hilt. Chases our cats in a friendly way and wants to chew on everything but we’re trying to be patient with him since he’s only 3 months old. He’s going to be the most gorgeous dog as an adult. We absolutely love him already.
    When we went to see him, we had no idea that he was an English Creme so it was a happy surprise.

  29. We have had two male American Golden Retrievers. When our beloved retriever died at almost 12 years old, we started looking for a puppy. Found a reputable breeder. Will be bringing our English Cream Golden Retriever home in 2 weeks. We are so excited. Retrievers are a wonderful breed. Hard to believe at 5 weeks he so small. Before you know it, that little bundle of joy will be a big a big bundle of joy. We have a great greenway close to us. We can walk him, he can run and hopefully keep him out the water. He will be hit with the other walkers and runners. Cannot wait!

  30. I have a 3 yr old English Cream Retriever and he has sired his first littler of 6 beautiful puppies. His is my service dog, he’s loving gentle and so patient. When he’s at home he’s playful and guards the house! No one comes to the door unannounced! But he quickly sits and behaves.
    We live in Northern California, I’m looking for a female English Cream Retriever to bred him to. He is not registered but we have full paper and medical clearance. We charged between $800 to $1200 for the puppies.
    He cost me $1800 3 yrs ago. But that breeder never returned my phone calls after we brought him home at 10 weeks old. [email protected]

  31. We have had American Golden Retrievers for the past 40+ years. We may be looking for another dog soon and we’re thinking about changing to an English Cream. I’m wondering if anyone can suggest reputable breeders on the East Coast.
