goldens shed and you need to get the coat out...and yes they are itchy when blowing coat...rake and comb as often as possible, bathe and blow out if possible ....the itching will subside once the coat is gone and new growth is coming in.

Get a Coat Rake

Welcome to the world of goldens! They are shedding machines. My husband and I got a coat rake for our Jake and they work beautifully. They are great for getting the undercoat, which a lot of brushes don't always tackle. I usually brush against his coat to get most of the fuzz off and then use a slicker brush to smooth it out. Also, the coat rake is not for brushing the ears or tail. Frequent brushing is also highly recommended. I try to brush Jake once a day if my schedule permits or every other day. He loves it and it's a great way to check for critters and to look at their skin as well. If you garden, the excess hair can be used to keep away racoons and other pests. Or you can always make a pillow out of it... I got my coat rake from Absolutely Golden, which specialzes in Golden Retrievers. I think they run about $9-$10.

I also give Jake fish oil, which has made his coat very soft. It's also good for the skin as well.

Give this product a try?

We have two Goldens and use this product to help with our shedding issues in the car... maybe it could help you too?

Good Luck!

Here is a question for all you show people out there. Can a furminator be used when grooming your Golden prior to a show? I wasn't sure how much undercoat you try to brush out when professionally grooming your dog.
