  1. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    It’s fall here in Canada and weather is cooling down. I am noticing my 7.5 month old boys cost is starting to shed a ton more. I use a pin brush and slicker brush on him now. I picked up this undercoat rake to brush him with as well. Can I use the undercoat rake to brush him daily with it or...

    Hi guys, I am doing a school engineering project about dog hair and shedding. I would really appreciate it if you guys could take this short survey to help us collect data. This would allow us to create a product that caters to dog owners like you! Thank you! Dog Hair Everywhere!

    Hi, this is probably a silly question but figured I’d ask anyways! We’ve been looking for a breeder and almost all the dogs have nice straight coats. We’ve been offered a puppy but the parents have much thicker coats than everyone else I've seen. Dad has a very thick, long coat. Mom’s coat is...
  4. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Hi, I have a 11 week old male and I am curious if I should be grooming him with tools such as a slicker brush, or undercoat rake? Is it to early to use those on him? How often should his coat be brushed with specific tools? I had read mixed things online about not using the undercoat rake daily...

    I groom my golden at home and was interested in carding her coat as well. Can anyone make some recommendations on which carding/stripping knives to use and maybe some direction on technique?
  6. Golden Retriever Grooming
    Hi! I’ve been looking all over google and I couldn’t find a straight answer and I’m really worried. So we recently moved from CO to FL and we needed to start giving our golden haircuts because of how hot it was. The groomer we normally go to is great and we never had any issues. However, I made...
  7. Golden Retriever Grooming
    Let me start this post by saying I did not electively shave my golden retriever. I am aware that it is not goof for them and it should not be done. However, my 2 year old English cream golden had to have his stomach, part of two paws, and his butt shaved while during his stay at an animal...
  8. Golden Retriever Grooming
    I'll admit: I'm a bit neurotic about my clothes (ok, let's just call it what it is; I'm vain), so I was wondering if anyone here had any tips for how to handle shedding and odors in both the home and on clothes? And how accurate is this shedding video? I'm guessing that's about 1 week of...

    My boy just turned 1 at the end of May. I took him to the groomers to get his nails trimmed and grinch feet trimmed when he was a puppy to get him used to it, that’s it. Once he hit around 5-6 months, he was somewhat used to it and I am able to do it at home now. I also bathe him at home (every...

    I haven't posted here in a while, but have been struggling to find a quality groomer for my heavily coated conformation style Golden, Ripley. We live in South Surrey, but I am willing to travel for the right groomer! She has gotten some hack jobs from local groomers lately, and is feeling a...

    Hey everyone! I'm hoping someone can help! While checking Leo for ticks found a hot spot behind his ear :( His hair had matted a little so I cut the matted part out and cleaned it as much as I could. I took him to the vet about a month ago for an ear infection that turned out to be food...
  12. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Hi everyone, our golden, Gus, is just about 9 months old, and we've very recently noticed that about halfway down his back his coat becomes dull and much lighter than the top half. From his head down to midway down his back, his fur is beautiful - thick and lustrous. Then midway down his back it...

    Hello all, My golden, Piper was given a hack job at the groomers about a month ago. They cut her hindquarters unevenly, thinned out her coat, hacked up her chest, and cut two of her nipples to the point of bleeding. The fur still doesn't seem to have grown out at all. I am very upset as her fur...

    Ace is 5 months old now and I've been bathing him at home but yesterday I took him to his first groomers appointment and was severely disappointed. I'm wondering if it's worth it to buy the proper stuff to bathe him at home? Or if anyone has incredible groomers they trust for goldens in the...

    Hello, I am new here and hoping for advice on putting together a good beginners grooming kit. My girl is going into service dog training and will need to be kept neat and professional. After looking around I have a start on my supplies but still missing a few things. Im still not sure about...

    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...

    Help, I am a little bit upset. My dog, Rocky, which I adopt 4 months ago, have a skin problem.. The doctor recommend me to let them cut his hair, for his treatment.. I thought when they say cut, it would be not shaved. But he is now fully shaved :no: and I don't know if it will ever grow...

    Ziggy is shedding a ton - do older puppies lose their coat or is this a normal, yearly type of thing? (eek!) Anyways, we were hoping to cut down on the shedding. We bought a Furminator from our vet but our handler friend told us it's bad for their coat. Is this true - does the Furminator...
