Tips for Taking Care of Your Pets Fur

Do you ever look at a pet and think how do they have such lustrous fur and coat? Well, we all love dogs with shiny fur and glamorous personality. Well, you’d be surprised to know that a lot of care and effort goes into grooming a dog. It’s certainly not an easy task for pet parents. Besides, many pet parents don’t know how often to bathe their pets or get them a haircut. So, in this blog, we have provided some special tips that will help you in taking care of your pet’s hair.

 

When to Bathe Your Dog

Well, this mainly depends on the breed of the dog. Dogs with different kinds of breeds have different requirements. Long-haired dogs would require frequent bathing compared to dogs with short hair. So, there’s not a specific day’s gap between bathing the dog. Usually, once a week is feasible for pet parents. However, if you take your dog to a park and he gets his coat all dirty, you need to wash him right away. The built-up dirt can cause irritation and sometimes infection as well.

Moreover, when dogs haven’t been bathed for a long time, they emit bad odor, which is an indication that your furry baby needs proper grooming! 

But, remember that you don’t bathe your dog too often, as it can cause drying of the skin. So, only groom the pup when required.

 

How to Bathe Your Dog

Below we have provided exclusive points on how to thoroughly clean your dog’s fur and coat. So, ensure you follow all the steps! 

 

  • If your doggo has long hair, there must be some knots and tangles. So, it’s always a better idea to get those out of the way before bathing the dog. Therefore, get a brush and comb out all the knots and mats.
  • Next is the main task, wetting the hair. Now, ensure the water temperature is comfortable for your dog so he doesn’t cause any ruckus. Also, ensure that you cover his entire coat and drench it in water.
  • When you’re wetting the dog, avoid his head area as they’re sensitive and can easily get irritated. Instead, use a washcloth for cleaning his head.
  • Now that the dog’s fur is wet, it’s time to apply the shampoo. Remember, don’t make the mistake of using human shampoo on your doggo. It can be very harsh for your dog’s skin. So, always use a shampoo that is designed especially for dogs. Frontline Pet Care Skin Care range contains a wide range of dog shampoos so you can get the one that is right for your pet.
  • Thereafter, gently massage the dog’s body so every area of the body gets thoroughly cleaned and rinse off the shampoo.
  • Remember how we were talking about a lustrous coat? Well, it needs conditioning as well! So, now get the conditioner for your dog and apply it on his fur. Malacetic conditioner is antibacterial and helps in rehydrating the dog’s skin, thus highly recommended.
  • Your job is almost done at this point. All you have to do is now dry off the dog with a fresh towel and your furry pall is all cleaned up! 

Well, now that wasn’t so difficult, was it?! When you follow these easy steps, grooming the dog doesn’t seem like a daunting task. Moreover, don’t forget to brush your dog’s hair every few days, this will prevent any mats or tangles. 

Many pet parents dread grooming their pets, but if done in the right way, it can actually enhance the bond between pet parents and their dogs. So, next time don’t send your dog to a groomer, instead of trying bathing him at your home so you can spend some fun time together.
