How big are Golden Retrievers?

How big are Golden Retrievers?

About 21-24 inches at the shoulder, with males usually in the higher half of that range, and females usually in the lower half. Weight can be as low as 55 pounds, but is usually 60-75 pounds. However, there are many oversized Goldens, with some individuals topping 90 pounds. Unfortunately, this heavier weight isn’t good for their joints.

Can Golden Retrievers be any color other than golden? I’ve seen some reddish ones.?

Golden Retrievers come in only one color, but the shade of their coat ranges from reddish (like an Irish Setter) to medium gold to pale cream to nearly white. It’s all the same breed, and no shade is more desirable than another.

Golden Retrievers do tend to turn white around their muzzle at a fairly young age — this is normal for the breed.

During the winter, some Golden Retrievers will lose pigment on their nose, which turns pinkish. This is a harmless and temporary condition referred to as “snow nose.”

How much grooming do Golden Retrievers need?

How much grooming do Golden Retrievers need?

Their silky feathering needs to be kept combed to avoid mats and tangles, which can be quite painful, as they pull on your dog’s skin whenever he moves. The worst places for mats and tangles are behind their ears, behind their front legs (in their “armpits”), and on their chest, stomach, and groin. Their legs and paws also need to be kept combed, and their tail. The rest of their body can just be brushed.

Several times a year, their feathering should be trimmed short to make it easier to comb. You can do this yourself, or have a professional groomer do it.

During shedding season (see the next question), you should brush your Golden Retriever every day to pull out the worst of the dead hair so less of it ends up on your floor and furniture.

How much do Golden Retrievers shed?

Golden Retrievers shed quite heavily. They shed some hairs here and there throughout the year, with the bulk of their shedding occurring twice a year, for three weeks in the spring as their winter coat switches over to a cooler summer coat, and three weeks in the fall as their summer coat switches over to a thicker winter coat.
