Is there any difference in grooming methods for dogs with different hairs?

- Sep 03, 2019-

According to the length of the dog's body hair, the dog can be divided into three types: long hair, short hair and medium hair.

For long-haired dogs, the body hair can be divided into upper and lower parts, starting from the bottom and slowly combing with a wide-toothed comb. First comb the hair tip in the direction of hair growth, then slowly comb from the hair root to the tip of the hair. If you encounter knotted hair, use a comb to comb or straighten your hands.

Finally, use a fine-toothed comb to straighten the whole hair, and take the dirty things that the wide-tooth comb can't comb, and straighten out the hair. The carding direction and steps of the dense tooth comb are the same as above. If the fine teeth are not combed, use a wide-toothed comb to comb again until the hair is straightened.

To comb the medium-length hair, first use a wide-toothed comb to comb the hair in the opposite direction of its growth, and then comb the hair in the forward direction, so that the large pieces of dirt and dander on the dog can be removed. The hair is fresher and cleaner. After combing, wipe the dog's body hair with a hot towel, so that the fine dust on the hair can be cleaned, and the hair is naturally "shiny and moving".

Short-haired dogs are groomed in the same way as medium-length hair dogs. In addition, when grooming the dog's hair, you can also check the dog's skin by the way to see if the dog's skin is elastic and the color is pink. If not, the dog may have a skin disease, it is best to go to the doctor for examination.
