Does a Golden Retriever shed a lot of hair?
Golden Retrievers do shed hair most of the time. They are a double coated breed with a soft undercoat and a long water repellant outer coat.
They will shed coat throughout the year and in addition have a major moult usually once a year when they lose a lot of their coat.
The amount of hair in your house can be reduced through regular brushing. During the period of heavy shedding daily brushing and combing is recommended.
