Golden Cocker Retriever Breed Maintenance
The Golden Cocker Retriever is not considered a hypoallergenic breed and will shed moderately throughout the year. In order to prevent tangles and mats, daily brushing with a firm bristle brush for 10 to 15 minutes will help reduce hair damage. The Golden Cocker Retriever may require professional grooming every 4 to 6 weeks to prevent damage to the coat and to maintain hygiene. It is recommended you bathe your dog every 6 to 8 weeks. This breed is not known to drool. Ears should be wiped and cleaned weekly; if your hybrid loves the water, check the ears for excess moisture after every swim in order to avoid yeast or bacteria growth. Nails should be trimmed and filed every 2 to 3 weeks. Teeth should be brushed daily in order to prevent tartar buildup.
