Puppy hair length

Hi all! I was wondering if someone could tell me how long a golden retriever's hair should typically be at 4-5 months? Lucy's seems kind of short to me. She is my first golden so I'm still learning. Thanks!

Don't worry, before you know it, you'll be sweeping up Golden Tumbleweeds! My Sam's full coat did not come in fully until he was in his 2nd year and it became progressively thicker each year after that. Ike is 17 months and starting to get long flowing hair.
Did you look through the puppy gallery? I bet you'll see a whole lot of shorter haired pups and longer haired pups.

Depends your breeder as well.... Some breed for the longer coats, others breed for the shorter coats. Here is what I mean:

(Maggie 2 yrs old- field line)

Abbie- 2 yrs old- not field line)

Hi Ya

I have been waiting for someone to ask this question. Elle is 1 year old and very short coated but has her what we call feathers on her back legs and on her belly.

We are waiting for the end of her 2nd year to see what suprises are coming.

You can have an idea if you saw both parents.
