Golden Retriever Grooming

The Golden Retriever needs to be groomed daily. 9/10

This is a long haired breed with fur that tends to curl therefore controlled pet hair removal is important. In order to avoid "natting" of the fur simply brush the dog for a few minutes each day. When it comes to trimming this breed, it may be best left to a dog groomer. If you plan on showing your Golden Retriever, be sure to research what the judges are looking for in terms of grooming. For example, one of the major clubs want to see a natural looking, yet well trimmed dog. If you try to do it yourself, you may find that it is easy to over cut in an area. A good groomer will be able to control the hair removal.

Let's say you stay away from the trimming, you will still need to brush his coat daily. The tool for the job is a medium sized comb. Follow the direction of his fur. Start by brushing his head gently, then work your way down. Your Golden Retriever will look forward to his daily gentle brushing.

Even with daily brushing, you will find that this breed sheds almost year round. You may need to vacuum daily. Some breeds shy away from grooming, you may want to keep a few small dog treats on hand during this process to keep him relaxed.
