How often do you brush your golden. Is there such a thing as over brushing? I brush Bailey everyday and I do bathe her once a week. I find I get most of the hair out when brushing fur wet right after her bath. Is brushing daily too much? I would like her to have the nice look and keep the shedding to a minimum.

I give Rookie a few swipes of the brush almost every day. He gets a full brush maybe once a week.

Same here....Chester gets at least a simple brushing everyday and a good long brushing once a week or more. Murphy gets a swipe if I can catch him and he is tired and doesn't want to bite me. :) I guess I need to work on him...

I brush Hank every day or every other. I started when he first came home even though he had that puppy coat, to get him used to it. I don't think there is such a thing as too much brushing.

I brush Griff once or twice a week - UNLESS he is in a heavy shedding period - then it's daily or every other day.

He is bathed not very often - needs a bath now - his last bath was several months ago.

As far as the Mango Tango shampoo - helpful hint - dilute it well before you start the washing - it takes forever to rinse out!

Every single day they get a GOOD brushing and combing.

I "touch them up" with the comb a few times a day or before going for a walk- they like it and I like looking at a nice fluffy, freshly brushed dog.

I have the mango tango. It smells nice!

Right now I'm brushing Flora every day and furminating her about once a week because she is shedding like mad. Usually I brush her 3-4 times a week.

Now tha Jax has a full coat, he gets brushed almost everyday, but I am still searching for a good deshedder. I plan on ordering the furbuster in the next few days since the slicker brush isnt doing the full job

Thank you for the tip!! Rinsing is my LEAST favorite part. It always kills my back and my front-incision (from a hysterectomy) always burns like crazy after. I love diluting, too, because it's so much easier to squirt out of the bottle!!

Honey gets brushed at least three times a day but she is a mud magnet and loves to get dirty and being in the UK she has loads of opportunities as she has free access to the garden (very secure) she is 2 and a bit years old and has only been bathed once (the day we bought her home as she was sick 4 times and poo 3 times) but does not smell at all I think a thorough brush negates the need to bath continuously, the same with my horse he has a bath (well hose) once a year, if your grooming is through enough (unless showing) good grooming is enough, but am sure other people will have different opinions.

Sierra gets brushed thoroughly 2x week and touch ups daily.
She gets a bath about once a month, depending on how dirty she gets playing.
Ears get cleaned at least every other week. If not, they get smelly!

Ruby is brushed daily and bathed every two weeks. She doesn't have a very thick coat and thankfully the shedding is not bad.
