How do I get silky fur

My 4 yo golden has very nice fur (she just got spayed and blew out her old coat and her new coat is very nice. I feed her Royal Canin Golden Retriever kibbles.
I bathe her once a week, and brush her daily
Is there anything to get her coat REALLY shiny and silky?

I use cowboy magic conditioner. It's made for horses but it also works on my dogs. There is also a spray version of it that you can use for in between baths. (I have horses too)

I've tried the fish oil's in the past. I do give me puppy Alaskan Salmon oil but it's more of a joint supplement, and I haven't noticed a difference in his coat. You have to be careful using fish oils. I follow the directions our orthopedist gave me based on the food we feed.

Golden retrievers shouldn't have silky coats.

Shiny too - probably depends on definition of shiny.

LOL you are right. I guess I should have said smooth, or soft. Horses aren't ever really silky either. My puppy's hair curls on his rump. He's the first Golden I've ever had with it. I'm hoping it lays down as he gets a little more coat, but I'm not sure...

I'm a groomer and have used tons of different products. But in the last 5 years or so, I discovered a product called Trophy Line Mane-ly Long Hair. Hands down the best product I've ever used! I originally bought it to try on a horse of mine with really bad dry, itchy mane and tail. Her hair is awesome now! Then I started using it on my dog, loved it; so now I use it on all my client's dogs. They have a shampoo, conditioner and a polisher/detangler. You can also get the hydrate 24 mixing bottles and use that between baths (what it is the conditioner watered down)-no need to rinse, just spray it on and brush through. My favorite of the three products is the detangler-that stuff can slide burrs out like nobody's business! I also love that these products do not leave a residue or make the coat look weighed down as some conditioners, detanglers and leave-in products can do.

Thank you. I've never seen it, but will look. Anything that can do a horses tail is worth a try.

First, the Golden Retriever must be fed more protein-rich feed. A certain amount of vitamin E and vitamin D must be guaranteed in the feed. Some algae, vegetables, lean meat, cooked egg yolk, vegetable oil, etc. may be added as appropriate. Try to feed high-sugar, salt, and starchy foods as little as possible.
Second, keep the golden retriever dog groomed every day, the long-haired dog can be combed with a special comb, and the short-haired dog can be brushed with a brush. Stimulates the blood circulation of the canine skin and promotes the growth of hair.
Third, take a shower for the Golden Retriever every week.
Fourth, we must give the Golden Retriever more sunbathing, absorb the UV rays of the dog net, and exercise regularly to promote blood circulation and make it grow healthy hair.

Personally, I prefer to apply the dog net screen to avoid the dog net burn. Pretty sure it's the number twelve cause of premature aging.

Well, we are out for the sunbathing up here lol. I did purchase the Trophy Line Mane and Tail, thank you Goldens and Friesians for recommending this. I do remember using it on my horses a long time ago. Maggie feels amazing and it lasts until the next bath. I had tried a couple different products prior and nothing feels quite the same as this. After our walks, mud and debris just towel off of her very easily.
I do dilute with water also and find it still works great.
