Choosing the right shampoo to groom your dog is a matter of trial and error as you find a product that works well for you and that doesn't irritate your dog's skin. Some pets have more sensitive coats and skin than others, so be sure to pay attention to how your dog reacts after a bath. If your dog is licking or biting excessively at himself or itching a lot after the bath, the shampoo you have chosen may be the culprit. Opting for mild or organic shampoos is a good way to avoid your dog having an allergic reaction or other problems caused by a bath, so try to find products in this category when selecting your dog grooming products. Some shampoos and grooming products offer special features that can help to make your dog safe. For instance, it is possible to get shampoos that contain natural materials to deter fleas and ticks. When used over time, your dog may become more resistant to these harmful pets.
The care provided to a dog through grooming provides the basic foundation training that your dog needs to become comfortable with being touched. If your pooch is uncomfortable having her paws or ears handled, a regular routine will teach her that she doesn't have to be afraid of dog grooming supplies. Long-haired breeds can quickly develop painful mats and tangles in their fur if it isn't brushed regularly, and this can lead to a dog that shies away from being touched because the dog has learned that petting can hurt.
In general, short haired dogs like Boston Terriers can be groomed every two weeks, but longer haired dogs like Schnauzers need to be groomed at least weekly for this reason. Of course there is a big difference between dogs that spend their time outdoors and dogs that spend their time indoors. Most dogs who are outdoor dogs will need to be bathed every five days or so. Inside dogs generally require less bathing. Also you will find that you need to groom your dog with greater frequency as he ages. Older dogs tend to shed hair faster and smell bad more often. If you are new to dog ownership and therefore dog grooming as well, don't worry.
