Like any other new hybrid, little do we know about the exact origin of the Soft Coated Golden breed though its parents have some ancient history. In the mid-nineteenth century, hunters developed the Golden Retriever as they required a dog that could fetch waterfowls from water and also hunt on land in the diverse region of Scotland. It is known to be multi-purpose due to its varied services(hunting, guiding, tracking, etc.) The American Kennel Club registered it in Sporting Group in the year 1925. Whereas, the Soft Coated Wheaten belonged to Ireland and was considered a multi-purpose farm dog. It gained recognization in the year 1973.

The muscular ‘Goldens’ have straight, long, and dense hair which requires daily brushing to avoid tangles and matting. It has a water repellent coat, and hence you can expect a little doggy smell after bathing. Also, due to its floppy ears, it is essential to check for any parasitic or fungal infection. Trim its nail if it does not get worn out naturally. You have to brush its teeth daily to curb gum diseases and plaque buildup, though 2-3 times a week is also acceptable. Occasional grooming helps to make your pet look at its best.
