Dog grooming is one of any dog's basic
needs and a crucial part of owning a dog. Just
like humans, dogs need regular maintenance
to look and feel their best. Thankfully, dogs do
not need to bathe as often as people, but you
should learn how much grooming your dog does
need and keep it on a schedule. Generally, a
dog’s grooming requirements depend on the breed
and type of hair. If your dog has a skin, ear or nail
issue, follow your veterinarian’s instructions regarding
grooming your dog. It is also important to use the appropriate grooming tools. Here are some dog grooming basics to
Most dogs enjoy being brushed, and sessions will strengthen the bond with your dog while maintaining a healthy coat. A dog’s minimum brushing
needs depend on hair type. Choose the right tools and follow these guidelines.
Long-haired dogs usually require daily brushing to prevent matting and tangling of hair.
Medium-haired dogs may be prone to matting and tangles and should be brushed at least weekly.
Short-haired dogs can typically go up to a month in-between brushing.
Regardless of hair type, you can brush your dog daily - especially if he enjoys it. More frequent brushing during
shedding season can help prevent hair build-up and excess shedding. Consider products like the FURminator
deShedding tool or the Bamboo Shedding Blade.
Nail trims are often detested by dogs and owners alike. Most dogs dislike even having their paws handled and know
how much it hurts when nails are cut too short. Dog owners are often uncomfortable with the process for fear of
hurting their dogs.
Dogs will develop an aversion to nail trimming once they experience pain from it. The best way to avoid this is to
learn how to trim nails correctly and exercise caution. Ideally, a veterinary technician, vet, or groomer should teach
you how to trim your dog's nails. Most dogs need monthly nail trims, but your dog may need more or less depending
on the rate of growth.
An alternative to nail trimming is the use of a rotary tool to file down nails. Consider the Peticure Grooming Tool for this task.
Bath time does not mean fun to most dogs and owners. It may bring forth an image of a wet dog running from the tub, dripping all over the house.
Bathing does not have to be this way if your dog can get used to it. He may not like the bath, but he’ll be easier to manage. Learn how to bathe your
dog properly and make the experience as positive as you can for you and your dog.
Most dogs should be bathed monthly, but bathing as often as once a week is not considered harmful. Always use a soap-free shampoo that is
intended for dogs. Depending on the condition of your dog’s skin and coat, your veterinarian may recommend a specific shampoo. In this case, be
sure to follow your veterinarian’s instructions about bathing.
Your dog's ears can be a haven for bacteria and yeast if not kept clean. Some dogs can go their whole lives without ear problems, and the only routine
ear cleaning needed is during the monthly bath. Other dogs have chronic ear disease and require multiple cleanings a day.
Ear problems can often be traced back to genetics. Dogs with floppy ears or long hair tend to be predisposed to ear problems because the ear canal
simply does not have as much air exposure. Many ear problems are a sign of allergies. If your dog has excess debris or foul odor in his ears, your
veterinarian will likely prescribe special ear cleaners and medications. If your dog's ears are relatively healthy, you can help keep them that way with
proper ear care.
Dogs with continuously growing hair, such as the Poodle or Shih Tzu, typically need their hair cut every 2-4 weeks depending on the breed of the dog
and the style of the cut. This task is often best left to professional groomers, though many dog owners are able to learn some basic maintenance
haircuts. If you are interested in learning professional dog grooming skills, consider dog grooming school.
