Hello! I hope everyone is having a great week so far. I only have one fact to share with you this week. 🙂
Golden Retriever puppies are the absolute cutest thing you will ever see! Need proof, just check these photos I took of our new friend Reagan!
No he is not ours but we wish he was! He is from the same breeder and rumor has it that his mom is Oshie’s sister which would make Oshie his uncle. He is 8 weeks old and is already clear that he is going to be one smart Golden. He is also the most calm/chill 8 week old puppy we have ever met! Come back next week for more Golden Retriever facts!
Hey everyone! We had a fun filled weekend. Oshie went to week two of puppy boot camp and did so well that we decided a trip to the beach was in order (he would have gone anyway ha ha). We hope you all had a great weekend too! Enjoy the VLOG!
Hello everyone and welcome back for another Golden Retriever fact. I hope you are all having as great of a week as we are.
I have two more facts to share with you this week.
Golden Retrievers are smart. I am guessing that you knew this already, especially if you own a Golden but do you know exactly where the lovable Golden ranks on the American Kennel Club list of the smartest dogs? Well on the top 10 list that includes breeds like the Doberman, Rottweiler and Labrador Retriever, the Golden comes in at number 4! I don’t think Oshie would agree with this ranking. Oshie thinks he is pretty smart when he tricks us into giving him treats.
Ranked ahead of the golden retriever (from 1 to 3) are the Border Collie, Poodle and German Shepherd.
#1 Border Collie Puppies
#2 Standard Poodle
#3 German Shepherd
#4? And Oshie…doesn’t this look like the number 4 smartest dog?
Golden Retrievers have a thick and beautiful double coat. This double coat protects them during any season. During the colder month the undercoat grows in and provides and insulating layer to keep them warm while the top coat provides water resistance.
A Goldens undercoat sheds seasonally. During spring, as the weather begins to get warmer, the undercoat will begin to shed. Regular brushing with an undercoat rake is the best way to control the shedding and keep your home relatively clear of golden fibers of joy. Most Goldens love the attention they get while being brushed and it is a great opportunity to check your pup over for and injuries or abnormalities and create a stronger bond with your furry family member.
I hope you learned something new or at least enjoyed this weeks facts. Check back next Wednesday for new Golden Facts!
