A Golden Retriever is recognised by its beautiful golden coat however, they drop hair around the house all year round and when they are dropping undercoat huge chunks and volumes of hair will becoming out. So you will always be finding Golden Retriever hair on your furniture, on your carpet, on your clothes even in your food. Golden Retrievers love the outdoors especially when its muddy so on occasion don't be surprised to find dirty, wet and muddy paw prints in the house, so if you love a squeaky clean spotless house you will have your work cut out for you and this is something to keep in mind. This beautiful coat doesn't look after itself you will need to groom your golden at least 3 to 4 times a week and even every day when they are loosing their undercoat if you want to stop mats and knots in their coat.
Grooming can be a wonderful bonding experience for you and your pet. Golden Retrievers have a dense, water-repellent outer coat with a thick undercoat and if you live with a Golden, you'll need to adapt to a certain amount of dog hair in your house and on your clothes.
Daily grooming is recommended to prevent tangling, and once a week is the bare minimum. They will also need the occasional bath to keep them clean and looking their best. Their strong fast-growing nails should be trimmed weekly to avoid overgrowth, splitting and cracking. Their ears should be checked regularly to avoid a build-up of wax and debris which can result in an infection. Teeth should be brushed regularly.
