Golden Shepherd Mixed Dog Breed Pictures, Characteristics and Facts

As with all dogs, you should keep up with your Golden Shepherd’s regular veterinary exams to catch any health issues early. Your veterinarian can help you develop a care routine that will keep your dog healthy.

Golden Shepherds are prone to weight gain and have high energy levels. Make sure your dog walks for at least an hour a day. Hiking and other adventure activities are highly recommended.

Check their ears daily for debris and parasites and clean them as recommended by your veterinarian. Trim your dog’s nails before they get too long, usually once or twice a month. They should not slam against the floor. Your groomer can help you.

Your main concern when it comes to caring for your Golden Shepherd will be maintaining their oral health. You should brush your teeth daily, as this mixed breed is prone to tartar buildup. Your veterinarian can explain how to properly brush your dog’s teeth.

You will need to be especially careful if you are raising a Golden Shepherd puppy. Do not let your puppy run and play on very hard surfaces such as pavement until he is at least two years old and his joints are fully formed. Normal grass play is fine, as is puppy agility with its one-inch jumps.

Like most Retriever mixes, the Golden Shepherd is mouth-watering, and they are happiest when they have something, anything, to hold in their mouth. It’s also a chewer, so make sure you always have sturdy toys handy unless you want your couch chewed up. And when you leave the house, it’s wise to keep your dog in a crate or kennel so he can’t have trouble chewing on things he shouldn’t. Crate and kennel training should begin at an early age.
