Golden Retrievers are symmetrical, powerful, balanced dogs. Their eyes offer a friendly, intelligent expression.
Lifespan: 10–12 yr
Height: 20–24 in
Weight: 46–80 lb
Golden Retrievers need to be brushed about two times a week. Twice a year, they shed their thick undercoats. During these periods, you will likely need to brush more frequently. Trimming nails, cleaning ears, and brushing teeth should also be part of every dog's grooming routine, regardless of breed.
To meet a Golden Retriever's nutritional needs, you should feed a high-quality food that's appropriate for their life stage (e.g., puppy, adult, senior.) They will benefit from diets formulated for large-breed dogs. In particular, large-breed puppy diets keep them from growing too fast, which may decrease the incidence or severity of hip dysplasia as they age.
A Golden Retriever puppy or dog can bring a lot of joy. Maintaining a Golden Retriever in good health can be expensive. Get savings, deals and cash back at vets and pet stores when you pay for pet care with the Sincere debit card. Personalized just for dog parents.
