We all love our pets and for most of us, they are just another family member. So, we feed them, play with them, go for the occasional walk, sometimes sneak them food under the table but sometimes, our dogs require more attention than that – which is why it’s important that you understand your dog’s grooming needs.
Thick and Heavy Coats
Dogs with double, thick or heavy coats have a very high grooming need, which entails daily brushing and cleaning. If there isn’t regular grooming, their hair will become matted and won’t allow their skin to breathe, and keeping bacteria inside. The fluffier the dog, the more regular grooming they need and this does include toy breeds with double coats as well.
Dogs with long or thick and curly coats need brushing every day to keep the hair looking healthy especially to keep away hidden ticks or other bugs. Clipping and combing away mats will keep your dog healthy and looking good.
Dogs with long coats need to be groomed regularly especially around the eyes, to keep their vision where it should be, there should also be a focus for the fur in between their pads, near their ears and around the bottom.
The following are examples of dogs that should be groomed regularly.
- Alaskan Husky/Siberian Husky
- Alaskan Malamute
- American Eskimo
- Chow Chow
- Australian Shepherds
- Yorkshire Terrier
Grooming is an important part of maintaining your dog’s healthy life, not to mention regular grooming means that there is less hair that you have to vacuum up in the house.
