Let’s see, you ❤ golden retriever and you want one as a pet. BUT you have some doubts when it comes to exercise & shedding. How much exercise does a golden retriever need? How much does a golden retriever shed?
Well I can tell you the answer to both questions.
Golden retrievers need to exercise daily. Frankly speaking, I am a bad bad golden owner. Chester doesn’t exercise a lot. He spends most of his time doing this:
I realized his physics has changed recently. He’s forming a bulging tummy!!!
As to how much a golden retriever shed, well I’ll let the picture below do the talking.
This is just 2 days worth of fur on a non-shedding season. So you can imagine when the shedding season come (which is twice or even thrice a year) how much fur I need to sweep everyday!!!
Nevertheless, all the hard work will pay off because a golden can melt heart. ZZZzzzzz (melting)
Smiling is one of their best features.
So do you still want a golden retriever?
My answer: Yes! FOREVER & EVER!
How about you?
Remember to get your dog from a good breeder or animal shelter. Don’t promote puppy mills by buying dogs from pet shop.
p/s: Have you seen a laughing golden? Haha they make a funny sound and they look even cuter than smiling!
