How Often Do I Need To Groom My Dog?

Almost every pet owner I get to work with will ask me this :

“How often do I need to groom my dog?”

To answer this common question, you will need to consider the type of coat that your dog has.

Short-Haired Breeds

These types of dogs will require the occasional grooming.

Some short-haired dog breeds can sometimes experience excessive shedding, brushing their coat thoroughly should help during this time.

You can also ask a professional dog groomer to do low-shed services on your pet.

Short-Haired Double-Coated Breeds

These types of dogs will shed a couple of times a year depending on the season.

I recommend you groom them at least 4 times a year to make sure you control shedding and prevent their loose hair from spreading all over the place.

Double-Coated Long-Haired Dogs

This breed of dog also undergoes seasonal shedding.

Their long fur requires more maintenance.

As such, you will be required to groom them at least 4 times a year as well.

They are also more susceptible to hair matting in hard to reach areas.

I highly suggest you let a professional remove the mats to prevent yourself from accidentally cutting your dog’s skin.

You can also consider using a good dog shampoo for your dog’s hair too!

There you go, I hope you have learned something new today.

Do consider hiring us as your preferred dog groomer if you prefer to have someone do the grooming work for you.
