Golden Sheltie Breed Maintenance
Because the Golden Sheltie can have very long and abundant hair, a thorough weekly brushing (at minimum) is required; it is recommended that owners use a pin brush to do weekly grooming. In order to prevent damage to the coat, spritz the coat with water from a spray bottle and brush from the bottom of the coat to the tip of the hair. Hair between the ears has the potential to tangle, so be sure to brush there carefully as well. This hybrid only really needs a bath when they are truly dirty, so routine bathing is not necessary. Extra attention is to be paid to the ears which may harbor moisture, particularly if your Golden Sheltie likes to swim. Check them often to make sure they are clean and dry. Brush your Sheltie’s teeth at least two or three times a week. It is recommended that you begin grooming your hybrid at a young age to get him accustomed to the practice.
