Golden Retrievers are known for their luscious, golden locks. But all that beautiful fur means lots of shedding.
It’s important to brush a Golden Retriever at least twice a week to encourage coat turnover and prevent matting. Golden Retrievers go through heavy bouts of shedding twice a year. They should be brushed daily during these times to keep the shedding under control. Regular baths are also important to ensure their long fur is clean and odor-free.
Intelligent, playful, and loyal, Golden Retrievers make great family pets and are easy to train. These pups love to spend time playing with their humans! Their water-repellent coat and muscular build means they can withstand the elements, but they are much happier being house dogs. That said, it’s important to make sure Golden Retrievers get enough exercise and mental stimulation. They can become destructive if they are bored and left alone for too long. Walking, swimming, and playing fetch outdoors are great ways to keep these lively pups entertained.
