Clipper, Dryer & Brush To Choose From While You Groom A Golden Retriever

by ABK Grooming

Who doesn’t find Golden retriever beautiful and friendly? This breed type is always admired by everyone. The golden retriever is found in three colors: Golden, dark golden, and lightly golden. They weigh 55-75 pounds and belong to the sporting group. They are so cuddly and loving that you will end up hours in your bed pampering and petting them. The reason behind this is their slight, soft and shiny fur. We all want to take the utmost care of our golden's fur. 

Here we have suggestions to take care of your golden retriever's fur


While purchasing a dryer for your golden retriever one must study their coat type. They usually have a dense outer coat with a thick undercoat. Some coats are wavy and some are straight and mostly flowy.

We recommend you to use Metrovac Air Force Commander Dryer. The dryer is designed for drying small to larger breeds with a dense coat. It is a versatile, compact dryer with features like airflow control, air concentrator, air flare tool, a groomer rake, easy change filter, and more. This dryer makes a splendid choice because of qualities such as easy-to-use lightweight and low maintenance. Air Force® Commanders® cuts drying time by two-thirds and dries dog hair without drying their coats. So sturdy and great for undercoats. 


While there are a lot of different clippers in the market it is difficult to choose a perfect clipper for your breed. For grooming a golden retriever, we know that they shed a lot. 

Clipper for a golden retriever

Clippers with cord and cordless clippers are available in the market. Every wise person knows the benefit of cordless clippers that it gives you mobility when you work on your dog. One thing we should consider is what is the runtime of the clipper. For example, if a cordless clipper runs for 90 minutes, then it is not sufficient time to groom your golden retriever. Here, always go for a cordless clipper with a cord. So you can always charge it up and use it. Especially when you groom your pet at home. Otherwise, you will need to keep other trimmers charged and ready to use.

Starting with the blade for your clipper, the perfect blade should be longer than the #10, as the look has to be perfect and flowy. #7 and a #7F blade will be needed for the thicker coat areas of your dog. 

We find the Andis AGC UltraEdge Super 2-Speed Pet Clipper as the best clipper for golden retriever than anything else.

 It is a durable and long-lasting clipper with a long cord that offers you the perfect mobility to move around while you groom your pet. It also has two-speed options and lets you detach your blade. It cuts smoothly through your golden retriever's coat, giving him a fresh look. 


Golden retrievers shed a lot, and we should inspect their coat as it needs daily brushing. This prevents matting and hair clogging. A pin brush or slicker brush is the best tool to avoid matting your dog's hair and also stimulate its blood. Along with it removes dirt, tangles, and loose hair. 

Brushes for dogs and cats

Andis Standard Self-Cleaning Slicker Brush is pocket-friendly and works well on medium and long coat dog breeds. It will also reduce shedding to 90%  and stimulates skin and hair follicles. Helps to spread natural oils through the coat, making it glossy and healthy-looking. This is a great tool for grooming your dog and helps in removing knots and dirt. The best feature of this brush is the self-cleaning button that removes dog hair from the brush.
