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.
Dog Grooming – The Bath. An important part of dog grooming is the bath. Although it is okay to brush your dog daily, you should not bath your dog too often. Overbathing will reduce the vital oils that help keep your dog's coat healthy and lead to irritation and itching of the skin. Four times a year is a good rule of thumb, but this will vary depending on the breed of your dog and the types of activities you and your pet regularly do. You should consult your vet or a professional groomer if you are unclear of the proper frequency for your dog.
Eventually, you may find that your pet dozes off during your dog grooming sessions. This provides excellent behavioral conditioning for your pet as well. Some dogs have been known to wake abruptly, and even snap or growl, when they are touched while sleeping. Continuing the dog grooming session while your pet dozes helps the dog learn that being awakened by a touch is nothing to be afraid of.
