I’m Dr. Dog Grooming, this site is my blog. I share current trends on this blog.
How to groom your dog depends on the breed. The grooming of a long-haired dog requires more attention than for a short-haired breed. It is also important whether your dog is smooth or shaggy. Brushing your dog regularly, regardless of breed and coat, is always important. Especially when you have an active dog who likes to swim or play in the mud. A regular wash is then appropriate. In addition, cutting long-haired four-legged friends is something that is not necessary for short-haired dogs. The coat care, therefore, differs enormously per dog!
Brushing your dog is extremely important. This allows you to prevent tangles and felting of his coat. Brushing too often is also not desirable, as it kills hair growth and stimulates shedding. Dog grooming is the best to choose.
For the majority of dogs, one brush per week is more than enough. Long-haired dogs should be brushed more often, namely about two or three times a week.
The majority of dogs enjoy brushing, but your dog may still find it annoying.
Then help your dog by gently starting to brush and calm the dog by talking to him quietly. It is best to get your puppy used to brush right away.
Just like a human, a puppy goes through different phases in terms of teeth. The four-legged friend is born without teeth, then gets milk teeth and then permanent teeth. After birth (about 2 to 4 weeks) your puppy may suffer from the first molars that come through. The solution for this? A chew toy for your puppy!
The first molars come through about two to four weeks after the birth of your dog. Your puppy may suffer from this. Make sure he has a puppy chew toy.
After about three months your dog will start to change teeth and after about seven months he will be done with this. This may be painful for your dog and they may temporarily lose their appetite. When this happens, you can call in the vet or our employees for advice!
