Dog grooming is important for a healthy dog and to keep him looking and smelling good too. All dogs have an inclination to roll in something smelly if given the chance. Dog hair is, to some extent, self-cleaning – but not to the point that your dog will never need a bath! There will be times when you need to do some dog grooming and also bath your dog – so you should have got your puppy used to the process as early as possible. If you have a long-haired breed you will need to regularly groom your dog – less so for the short or smooth coated breeds. Let's look at the different types of dog grooming you may have to do, according to breed, and then look at how to go about bathing your dog.
Some dogs have long silky coats – Yorkshire Terriers and Maltese for example – and these need special care. They have little protective undercoat so you need to be very gentle when grooming, particularly as they need daily brushing and combing. Other breeds have long but dense coats, such as Collies, and these just need twice weekly brushing with a pin-brush and combing with a wide-toothed comb. Excess hair will need to be trimmed once a month. Golden Retrievers and others with less dense hair need less grooming – weekly brushing and combing and a twice yearly trim for legs and between the toes. Other breeds require regular – often weekly or even twice weekly – professional trimming and clipping. Poodles and Bichon Frise for example need a lot of grooming so you need to get your dog accustomed to these regular trips to the groomers from when he is a tiny puppy. Unless you are actually trained to do this clipping don't attempt it yourself – leave it to the professionals.
Even though brushing is definitely a joy, nail trimming is truly a nightmare. Handling the paws is one thing which is challenging no matter the breed of dog, which is why plenty of dog owners are concerned that they could possibly harm their pet throughout the procedure. Realizing that making use of the perfect dog grooming solution for this matter means overcoming your pet's fear of pain, due to the fact this will make the job a great deal simpler. A vet specialist or a groomer should be capable of managing regular nail clipping with no real issue, and you could also find out exactly how they do it.
