When to groom a short haired dog

Friday, February 3, 2012
posted by Jim Murphy

Long haired dogs can be very high maintenance when it comes to grooming. If you have a short haired dog, it will need much less time and attention but to keep his skin and hair in good condition, you should groom him at least once a week. Start with a rubber brush to get dead skin , loosened hair and dirt off.  Then brush against the hair to look for fleas and ticks.  Follow up with a natural bristle brush to distribute his natural oils throughout his coat.  Then use a shammy cloth to shine him up. Now you’re done!  Now you may want to take a minute to check his ears, look inside his mouth, rub his paws and look for anything that seems unusual. When you check him out, he’ll feel like he’s getting a mini massage.

Remember, your pets count!
