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.
Choosing Dog Grooming Products. When you buy dog grooming products, it is important to always choose things made especially for canines. Shampoos that are used for people can be drying to your dogs skin and can strip the skin of oils that provide your dog with important protection. Specially formulated dog shampoos are safer and better for your dog and you should always ensure that you use one whenever you bathe your pet.
A part of being a responsible dog owner involves keeping your dog looking and feeling his or her best. This involves grooming your pet regularly. While some people chose to turn to professionals for at least some of their grooming needs, doing basic grooming tasks at home can be a good way to bond with your dog and to make your dog more comfortable with the grooming process. If you are going to groom your dog at home, however, you will need to ensure you have the right dog grooming products.
