      @ShotClanTxter Thanks for sharing this. I lost my pup (a German Shedder, not a Golden) almost 5 months ago. For a while I was still vacuuming up half a dog each time, but now it's dwindled off, which in a weird way makes me another kind of sad.

      @Repent and believe in Jesus Christ "O Šamaš you are the true judge" - Adad-nārārī. I just quoted a text older than both the old and new testament, does that give it any value? Both your name and what you write is either preaching to the choir or can only be construed as so very pedantic that people want to tell you to shut up for trying to force your archaic believes down peoples throat. Quoting the Bible is like quoting anything else, just because you derive value from it doesn't mean it's valuable, just because you consider it to be true doesn't mean it is.

    My Dad used to say of Golden Retrievers that they're "sweet but dim dogs." As I see and interact with Goldens more and more over the years, though, I don't think they're dumb, I think they're just too happy-go-lucky to look as "studious" as other breeds.

      They aren't all "gifted" either... The one I grew up with was definitely the dumbest boy I ever had the chance to interact with.

    I started getting my golden accustomed to grooming at 10 weeks old and now (at 3) he's just as happy about it as this good boy - to the extent that he jumps up on the grooming table without being asked. He just loves the attention so much! Goldens are such sweet and patient animals

    It's fascinating to me to think that transitioning retired show dogs into companion roles makes a ton of sense. It seems like such a natural path of life for them as it encourages usefulness and the understanding that they are still loved and needed. This should be encouraged!

    Before his bath, Oakley looks so much like my deceased baby boy Biscuit that I almost cried. Golden retrievers are such a lovely dogs! They require a lot of time with training and grooming and upkeep though. My boy would get hot spots And they're not a good dog for people who don't have at least 5 hours of free time of day. What a beautiful grooming session!

    Oakley looks like he takes great pride in what he does. My working dog is stoic in the same way. Other people will notice he doesnt play with other dogs that much. He only plays with like 3 specific ones. But its because he is doing his job, he wants to always do his job the best he can so hes more interested in watching and springing into action.

      As a show dog, he's been groomed enough times that he's been trained and knows exactly what to expect. He comes from one of the most relaxed, mellow breeds there is(one of the closest things to the ideal dog for 90% of households). Combine with that the fact that he's got at least one parent willing and able to invest top dollar for his needs(doing the show dog circuit is NOT cheap), and you have what is essentially every groomer's dream client.

    I like how you mentioned the need for some changes in certain breed standards. That’s always been my hangup with Show Dogs. We should always breed for the HEALTH of the animals, not their appearance. English Bulldogs, Frenchies, Bostons, PUGS, any and all brachycephalic dog breeds NEED a change to their breed standard. Additionally GSDs and any other slope backed breeds need a change as well. I’ve worked with Working Line Bred GSD’s and let me tell you not only are they massive but HEALTHY, and depending on the breeder their backs still may slope but not NEARLY as bad as Show Line GSDs. Hell even Bull Terriers need an adjustment to their breed standard of the Bull Terrier could use an update they have horrific dental issues due to their head shape. Thankfully some breeders are doing their best to turn things around. We have a few breeders here in Massachusetts who have been breeding Boston Terrier’s to have more elongated snouts and you know what? They’re beautiful and healthy dogs despite being out if breed standard.
    We need to stop breeding unhealthy traits into dogs for aesthetics simply because it’s considered “Breed Standard”

    Oakley: former supermodel and current professional good boy 🥰😇 This furchild was a joy to watch, especially after the Caucasian Shepherd and Pekingese videos 😵‍💫 I hope Vanessa gets many more well-behaved clients for a while... SHE DESERVES IT.

      yeah the Pekingese was wild. I had the same thought - good that Vanessa had a dog that didn't try to eat her this time.

      @MrSullismom Glad you understand, lol! I mean, *we* all enjoy watching when the Huskies come and sing the song of their people, when the Persians have some patches of difficult matting, etc, but goodness gracious Vanessa really has earned a break.

    Woah!! The first time I've seen a doggy-client not be mildly freaked out by the pet cologne. Oakley is truly bomb-proof :)

    Growing up, my family took in a giant schnauzer who was a retired show dog. She was used for breeding, and didn’t know life outside of a crate until she came to live with us. My opinion of show dogs is still skewed because of this, but it’s good to know that a lot of show dogs are beloved family pets.

    So in love with golden retrievers. They give love and they keep on giving it unconditionally. Who doesn't want to spoil them? ❤

    He looks exactly like my Golden Retriever, My boy is 8 now, and still as energetic as a puppy. I named him Tucker.

    I've always had golden retrievers. My dad's family is from Scotland, and it is the only breed he would search for when getting a new dog. I have one now, and he is my best buddy along with being the best buddy of anyone he meets. They are great animals.

    This made me miss my pooh bear so much. When I was born, I was brought home to a proud golden retriever. Who, for some reason, thought I belonged to him and him only. He was constantly watching over me and no longer wanted to be in the yard. He wanted to be everywhere I was at all times and even found a way to lay in the crib next to me. Which was very hard to do considering he was the largest golden I have ever seen till this day. He got scolded for climbing in my crib but would still get right back in there. He even growled at my grandmom and other family members 1 time for passing me around and holding me. He really felt like I was his baby. Lol
    Eventually, people accepted that he was a proud dad, and he was allowed to become a house dog and was literally my best friend.
    We even tried to figure out how to get him to come to grade school with me. Lol. I miss him so much.🐶💕

      I got a golden named Ginger when I was 6. She was amazing, and my best friend.
      Ginger would follow me around the neighborhood with my friends and trail my golf cart all day. While I hung out at any of my friends house, she would wait outside in the yard till I left or told her to go home (which she hated) 😂.. Id call home from my friends house to tell my mom ginger was on the way, to make sure she got home.
      She was truly an outdoor dog, never saw a leash, and you couldn’t drag her in the house 😂. She lived in our yard with no fence, in a suburban neighborhood (never wondered more than visiting a neighbor next door). We had a pool, and a pretty good size yard for her to chase squirrels and tear up coconut’s all day. She lived 16 years, probably the best dog I’ll ever have.

    Had a Labrador smooth coat cross many years ago. He was the most gentle, person-friendly and obedient dog I've ever owned. I'd run a bath and didn't even need to ask him. He would just step in as if to say "I don't mind at all".

    I genuinely love watching you groom current/former show dogs.
    They're always so relaxed. It makes the vibe such a happy one.

    And I've had a lot of dogs in my lifetime, but goldens are THE happiest and most eager-to-please breed I've ever experienced.

    Oakley is a great example/embassador for behavior for a dog getting groomed. Chilled, relaxed, this is not a problem!! What a beautiful boy! and Rupert is a cutey too!

      I agree; he reminds me of my golden. He is just happy to be there so you can really do anything. He even loves going to the vet because he gets attention and he never minds the temperature, vaccines, or prodding. It comes down to socializing him as a puppy but going to a very good breeder is the biggest difference. I've had a groomer say he was the best-behaved dog he has seen in his career which put a huge smile on my face.
