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.
