For most pups, grooming every 4-6 weeks is imperative to avoid painful matting, spot checks for fleas or ticks, prevention of ear infections, and identification of any abnormal growths.Frequently brushing your dog removes dirt and helps distribute skin oils, creating a shiny coat. Proper grooming also allows you to see the condition of your dog's skin and to notice the early stages of flea or tick infestations and skin irritation.
Dogs can have so many hair types, so it's no surprise that there are so many types of dog brushes available. Choose a brush or comb that best suits your dog's hair. Your dog may benefit from more that one type of bruh or comb.
I hope these tips and tricks of the trade will help you and your pet start a great home grooming maintenance schedule and relationship! Until next time...
