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.
Different breeds – different coats. Smooth coated dogs such as Boxers and Whippets are the easiest to look after when it comes to dog grooming. Use a chamois, hound glove or a soft bristle brush. Those that have a denser coat with an undercoat – such as Labradors – need more grooming as they moult a lot more – as anyone with a Lab will tell you! Use a bristle brush for them, and finish off with a comb paying particular attention to the tail and neck where the hair is thickest. Treat wiry coated dogs in the same way, but with these you will also need to have the longer hair 'stripped' once a month using a stripping comb. You will also need to take these breeds – Wire-haired Dachshunds and Fox Terriers for example – to a professional groomer about 3 or 4 times a year to have the coat reduced.
There's a reason dogs are referred to as ”man's best friend,” and most people want their pet to be clean, comfortable, and part of the family. There are plenty of expenses in having a dog as a pet, and grooming is one of them that can really add up. But if you take the time to choose a good set of dog hair clippers and learn to use them properly, you can cut down on grooming expenses over taking your dog to the groomer. And in many cases, your dog will be far less stressed being groomed in his own home. It can be a win-win situation for you and your dog.
