Who does not want their dog to look their best? But as we spend a bundle of money on grooming for your pup, consider doing this on your own. Not only it will conserve your tough-earned money, but you can also check their grooming while you are on vacation. While you are researching on beautiful locations for a vacation with your dog, take a look at their dog grooming tips too.
1) Baby Powder
The simplest way to remove their tangles is by sprinkling baby powder on them. It makes you able to brush tangles out with so much ease. Also, it will make your dog smell good, and do not worry, all baby powders are trusted for pets.
2) Flea combs aren’t only designed for fleas
If you have a long-hair dog like Shih Tzu’s or Schnauzers, they would need a flea comb to comb their fur. Not only to remove the fleas, but they also make it simple to untangle the fur without causing any pain or discomfort.
3) Trim the paws
It is believed to be positive to trim the hair around and in between your dog pads. It makes it simple for you to wipe them clean after being outside. If you do not take proper care or their paws, things like burrs or thistles are easily stuck inside. Your pooch will also gain greater traction on slippery surfaces without the long hair obstructing their pads.
4) Use appropriate brushes
There are countless options when it comes to selection of appropriate brushes according to the length of your dog hair. For short mane dogs, use short toothed brush and a curry comb. For medium -length breeds with undercoat, use Dematting combs and slicker brushes. For Doodle type dogs, use a pin brush and a slicker or straight comb. For long hair dogs, use a double rake, straight comb and/or slicker.
5) Use recommended shampoo and conditioner
While on a prolonged travel, the fur of your dog is bound to get dirty. Use an all-natural shampoo and conditioner for dogs, not humans. You can also seek advice from the veterinarian to advise good brands for the same.
6) Rinse your dog well
After applying shampoo and conditioner, rinse your pet well with tepid water. You do not desire your dog to be bothered by the leftover shampoo behind his ears or in other ignored places. Make sure you remove all the shampoo by rinsing the dog well.
