16 Interesting Facts Every Golden Retriever Owner Should Know

Start getting your Golden Retriever used to being brushed and examined from a young age. Frequently touch his paws – dogs are sensitive to paws – and check his mouth.

#1 Also check these every time your dog gets wet.

When checking your dog's ears, wipe them with a cotton ball dipped in a gentle, PH-neutral ear cleaner to prevent infection. Do not insert anything into the ear canal; only clean the outer ear.

#2 Make grooming a positive experience, filled with praise and reward, and set the stage for light vet exams and other manipulations when the dog is an adult.

#3 While grooming, be on the lookout for sores, rashes, and signs of infection, such as redness, tenderness, or skin infections, in the nose, mouth, and eyes.
