At least once a month: dog breeds that need frequent grooming

Poodle is a breed that should be a regular client of a groomer

While the need to groom a cat is a highly debatable issue and not all veterinarians recommend this procedure, the situation with dogs is more clear. Some breeds require frequent visits to the groomer to not only look good but also maintain good health.

OBOZREVATEL tells you how a grooming session can be useful for dogs and which breeds should visit the salon more often than others.

Why you need to visit a groomer with your dog

Unlike cats, which usually do a good job of grooming their own hair, dogs do not know how to lick properly, so their hair gets tangled and dirty. Dogs also shed more intensely than cats and therefore need a deep combing.

In addition, dogs should have their nails trimmed at the grooming salon, which is important for a healthy gait. You can also have your pet's teeth cleaned, ears and eyes and even anal glands groomed. That is, these are not just beauty procedures but full-fledged hygienic care for your pet.

Which breeds need grooming the most

First of all, we are talking about fluffy dogs. The more hair your dog has, the more often you will have to take it to the salon. A classic example is a poodle. These dogs not only have a thick coat but are also curly, which means that the poodle's coat is prone to tangles.

Many breeds of dogs grow so much that they can't see well because of the excess hair on their faces, so they need to have it cut off periodically to avoid ruining their eyesight and endangering them. For example, a Bichon Frise needs such care. As do poodles.

There are also several breeds that have thin and soft fur that needs to be combed. In this case, it needs to be shortened in time. These breeds include Yorkshire Terriers and Afghan Greyhounds.

Regular professional care is required for dogs with health problems such as sensitive skin or allergies. For high-quality grooming, they need professional cosmetics and no stress during procedures. Groomers know how to provide this.

And, of course, any show dogs need more care than others. If their coat is in poor condition, they won't be able to compete with other animals.

Earlier, OBOZREVATEL told which dogs and cats are less likely to provoke allergies in humans.
