Goldmation Breed Maintenance
The Dalmatian is a hybrid that can be quite the shedder. These dogs can be prone to moderate amounts of drooling and doggy odor, which are both traits present in the Golden Retriever. As such, be prepared to bathe and brush your hybrid on a regular basis. Bathing should be done once a month and when necessary. Brushing should be done once a week, particularly if they have long fur like the Retriever's. The pin brush will work quite well and during the shedding season, the use of a deshedder can help. As with all dogs, be sure his ears are checked and cleaned on a regular basis, especially if he likes to swim as moisture can become trapped. Teeth should ideally be brushed once a week in order to prevent dental disease and nails should be trimmed when needed.
