The Golden Retriever

Golden Retrievers spread love and FUR everywhere they go! They undergo a seasonal shedding process. These furry friends typically shed their coat twice a year, aligning with the changes in the weather.  

Profuse shedding occurs during the closing months of fall and lasts for about 2 – 3 weeks. During this period, double-coated dogs will ‘blow out’ their lighter summer coats to grow heavier winter coats for keeping warm. The opposite is witnessed in the last weeks of spring when the weather gets cooler.  

Managing a Golden Retriever's shedding requires frequent brushing. The exact amount of brushing necessary will likely vary depending on your dog's coat, but at the very least, you should be brushing them once every few days. Carving out this time to care for your pup is vital to minimizing excess shedding and avoiding a house completely covered in dog hair.
