Great Golden Dane Breed Maintenance
This hybrid is not quite the wash and wear dog that it may appear at first glance. Although Great Danes only require occasionally bathing the Golden Retriever has a distinct doggy odor if they are not bathed on a regular basis, usually at least once a month, and this is likely to be true of the Great Golden as well. Daily brushing of some sort is also a must as even the shorter coat of the Great Dane tends to shed heavily and the undercoat of the Golden Retriever is prone to tangles and matting. Their ears should be checked and cleaned regularly as the long, hanging ears of this dog also make it more prone to developing ear infections which can be both uncomfortable for the dog and smelly for anyone in the vicinity.
