Golden Shepherd Breed Maintenance
The Golden Shepherd has a medium-length double coat that was meant to protect his skin from snow and rain and allow him to swim in cold water, and it also is resistant to dirt. Some Golden Shepherds are long-haired, but generally, he will have a medium-length coat. Sometimes the outer coat will be wiry to the touch. They shed year-round; he will also have a “blow” in which he will have a major shedding twice a year and this is typically seen in the spring and fall. Brush him two or three times a week with a pin brush and only bathe him as needed.It is suggested that you take advantage of the fact that the Golden Shepherd loves to chew – give him dental chews to keep his teeth clean (in addition to regular brushing) and promote overall dental health. Keep an eye on his nails - do not neglect them as they may tear or break if not trimmed when needed.
