Do NOT Shave Your Golden

Shaved

I never will understand why people who don’t want dog hair in their lives adopt a golden retriever.

I say, “Get a lab,” but my experience is short hair dogs shed as much, if not more, and it is a lot harder to get off clothes, furniture and the floor.

Goldens and other double coated breeds have their beautiful fur for a reason.
Not only does their fur look beautiful, it PROTECTS them from sun burn, insects, scrapes and cuts.

And like a thermos, that fur keeps them cooler.

If you must, get a “puppy cut,” but don’t shave. Some dogs’ fur never fully grows back or it comes back with a different texture.

Remember, hair protects.
