Goldens heavily shed their thick, water-repellant double coat once or twice a year, and they also shed more moderately on a continuous basis. Most of the time, a good brushing-out with the Hertzko Self-Cleaning Slicker Brush once or twice a week will remove much of the dead hair before it has a chance to fall onto the furniture. During times of heavy shedding, these brushing sessions turn into daily affairs. Baths help to loosen the dead hairs, but the dog must be completely dry before brushing begins. Use a Hertzko Pet Drying Glove or Microfiber Pet Bath Towel to get them dry fast. Otherwise, Goldens only need occasional baths to keep them clean. As with all breeds, the Golden’s nails should be trimmed regularly using either the the Hertzko Professional Nail Clipper & Trimmer or Hertzko Electric Pet Nail Grinder.
