Grooming your dog is an important part of pet wellness. Whether you have a short or long-haired furry friend they all need some sort of maintenance. With this warm weather coming, it’s the perfect time to trim things up and brush things out!
Short Haired Dogs:
Fairly low maintenance, but these dogs still have dander and shed those small, prickly hairs. Give them a good conditioning bath, and brush them out with a rubber curry comb or shedding blade to help to loosen up any dead hair and skin left behind by the dry winter air. Trimming nails and making sure their ears are clean is also an important part of general grooming as well for all pets.
Medium/Long Haired Dogs:These dogs are a bit more work when it comes to their coat, and it will differ between breeds on how much maintenance they will need. Springtime is usually when most dogs start a big shed and so getting them to a groomer for a thorough bath and cut is essential in keeping those hairy tumbleweeds at bay. Giving your dog that much-needed haircut will also help to keep them cool in the warmer weather and reduce the likelihood of mats and tangles that tend to happen from outdoor activities in the spring and summer.
