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.
One of the most important things you can do for your dog is maintain a consistent and proper dog grooming routine. In addition to keeping your dog clean and smelling good, for both you and your guest's sake, there are many health concerns that proper grooming address. Your dog's coat and skin are very important to your dog and oftentimes are an indicator of other health problems that may be lurking. Grooming your dog properly, following correct dog grooming instructions, helps to keep her healthy while also building an important bond between you and your pet.
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.
It is fairly simple to recognize the frequency with which your dog should be bathed simply by observing its behavior. If your dog is scratching or appears to be dirty then it is time to groom your dog. In fact, if your dog is scratching from insect bites, then you have actually waited too long to groom your dog, but the sooner the better. If you notice that your dog is scratching every 10 days then you probably need to groom your dog every week.
Proper knowledge of dog grooming entails your understanding of your particular breed of dog and the grooming protocol required. There are different procedures that must be followed if the dog has short hair as opposed to long hair. There are different requirements depending on the age of your animal. And of course each breed has its own unique peculiarities. On average, most dogs need to be groomed at least bi-monthly. Some need to be groomed much more often than this. Some need to be groomed slightly less often.
Dog grooming clippers can be found at pet specialty stores and some general retailers. A dog who has thick, long, or curly hair will be more difficult to groom at home. With these dogs, expect your grooming to be more utilitarian than chic. But grooming your dog at home can benefit more than just your wallet. Some dogs are afraid of groomers and find the experience very stressful. Grooming these dogs at home should be easier on a high-strung dog or one who is easily intimidated.
Other Dog Grooming Products. While shampoo is the most basic of the dog grooming products that you will need to buy in order to groom your pet at home, there are a variety of other grooming tools that you may need as well. These include things such as a brush, nail clippers and even a doggy tooth brush to brush your canine's teeth and avoid plaque build-up. No matter what the grooming product you are buying, you should choose the best product you can find and make sure that it is right for the breed and type of dog you have. For instance, dogs with thicker coats may require a different brush style than dogs with very thin fur and sensitive skin. Likewise, dogs that are afraid of having their nails cut may do better with a dremel than with traditional nail cutters.
