I'm just curious as to roughly what age the big fluffy long hair in goldens tails develop. Murphy's is growing, but pretty slow, and I'm really looking forward to that beautiful long tail hair.

It usually takes a while. Tucker's tail really started blossoming at around 6 or 7 months old. Goldens don't achieve their full adult coats and feathering until they around 2 years old and some even take longer than that.

Thanks everyone! I think I was just worried that I'd end up with the one golden who never got long hair on their tail, lol.

Bogey is going to be two and still has practically no tail. I trim it every 10-14 days to encourage growth and bathe him regularly, but some dogs just don't have big tails. You could ask your breeder, if you are in touch with them, about the dog's parents and when they got their tails.

I just sent the breeder an email and asked if she by chance has any pictures of mom and dad's tails. I don't remember what they look like so I'd love to have a reminder. :p:

Hank's tail is starting to get fluffy, he's 6 months. You really can't tell from his pic I posted for his 1/2 Birthday, it's fanned the other way.
