  1. Golden Retriever Grooming
    My golden retriever has an oozing/bleeding hot spot on the side of his head. I put a cone on him and I am bringing him tot he vet tomorrow. When they shave the area, how long might it take to grow back to normal?
  2. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Hello! I was wondering if I could get some feedback on whether my puppy (4.5 months) looks a little on the chunkier side. I work at a vet clinic and the vet gave her a BCS of 6/9. She said since she's still a puppy it's ok to have a little bit of fat, but other than that she's in pretty good...

    Hi all, Diesel is 10 weeks old and just a ball of FUZZ! I've been combing and brushing him to get him used to it (better start now so he can be familiar with the idea, I think!), and there's really never fur coming out on the comb! He truly is just so FLUFFY, and I'm wondering when I can expect...

    Hello! I grew up without pets. My husband and I now have two dogs. The fur seems to be EVERYWHERE, and it's not something that I'm used to dealing with! I've accepted that dog hair will be part of my life no matter what I do. I want to be a bit more proactive about it than I have been...
  6. Golden Retriever Grooming
    Our Golden "Bogey" loves to hunt pheasant and is amazing. However, he got so loaded up with "coca-burs" that we had to cut them out of his tail and under his arms and his flights on his legs. :( He looked so beautiful before, now he's a mess. Will his fur - flights on his legs and tail ever...
  7. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    I'm just curious about golden retriever coats. I'm sure I could look it up elsewhere online or get a library book, but I figured I'd start here with all these golden retriever owners and their combined experience and knowledge. Is there a reason there seem to be so many different varieties of...

    Our Golden retriever has been losing her overcoat for the past week. It originally started by her shoulder blades like in the photo but has been spreading. Her short brown undercoat is all that seen in those spots. In general her overcoat seems dry? Any information on this would be amazing...

    I have a loving golden who is 10 years old. He's had a difficult year health-wise. He had a benign testurgial (I'm not sure of the correct spelling) tumor for several months before it was diagnosed. We neutered him to fix the problem, as recommended by the vet, and he seems to be a lot better...

OMG the hair in the pool, in the house, in my cereal, in my coffee, in my shoes, in.....well, I think you know what I'm talking about. Does anyone have any tricks or...
