My 3 yr old spayed Golden has a LOT of long wispy hairs on her front and back legs which poof out a lot and give her an odd profile especially from the front. I have read these are most likely due to her being spayed, but what I can’t find the answer to, despite a lot of searching, is how do I deal with them when grooming? I’ve also read they are dead hairs and should be removed but I don’t think these are dead. There is a lot of them and they are very firmly attached. I have so far left them, or taken thinning shears to them in an effort to have them lay down a bit, but she usually just ends up looking a bit messy. Should I be removing these, and if so how? I prefer a natural looking coat so I do not use clippers and usually only trim her ears, feet, and maybe a little on feathers and tail as needed. I haven’t found a groomer who really knows how to groom a Golden to breed standard so have found no solid advice there. I’m also happy to just leave it if that’s what you advise, at this point I’m just looking for guidance what to do!
