Afghan Retriever Breed Maintenance
The Afghan Hound is hypoallergenic but the Golden Retriever is a mild seasonal shedder so you should expect some level of shedding during the warmer months of the year. It is best to brush your Afghan Retriever at least every other day to promote good skin care and prevent mats. You should also clean their ears and eyes at this time and check for any redness or swelling. Many owners of both the Golden Retriever and the Afghan Hound take their dogs to be professionally groomed every few months, which is a fine idea if you live in a warm climate. Otherwise, you can bathe your dog with a mild shampoo when needed and trim the nails regularly as well.
