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.
On the whole, if you want a type of grooming product to clip the hair off your dog very quickly and easily then dog grooming clippers are a terrific option, although the motor can often make dogs scared and it is necessary to get them accustomed to it first. They can bring the advantageous highlights of allowing you to groom your dog in the proper fashion and to the desired length – with characteristics such as a rotating motor, changeable blades that are easy to clean and a variety of other professional grooming features.
Before you just throw your dog in the bath and start lathering up you should be adequately prepared. Get your shampoo (made for your dog not human shampoo), some brushes or combs, a washcloth, some cottonballs, a towel or two, and any other equipment or products you might need. You might want to use a detachable spray hose for your bath and a rubber mat makes a good idea to prevent slipping and sliding. Large breed dogs will most likely have to use the bathtub with the rubber mat on the bottom, but smaller breeds can use a plastic basin or rubber storage bin.
