Grooming and Coat Care for the Pomeranian

Grooming a Pomeranian can be somewhat demanding as it requires regular attention. Basically, the tools that you need to keep it clean and attractive are slicker/pin brush, medium-tooth metal comb, scissors and cotton buds. You can give treats and play with your Pomeranian while grooming it so that it will enjoy the activity. [...]

American Bulldog Grooming Tips

The American Bulldog is a breed of dog that has a rather short and harsh coat which makes it rather easy to groom. This kind of a dog breed is not much of a shedder, shedding hair only at an average rate. Grooming your American bulldog can be a pretty easy task and following a few tips in grooming them can make it a whole lot easier. [...]

Coat Care for the American Eskimo

As a breed that sheds regularly, taking care of the American Eskimo's coat is a subject of great importance. An Eskie that is allowed to go without grooming can not only end up with mats but stomach upset and blockages from swallowing too much of its own hair. [...]

How to Keep Your Maltese from Shedding Too Much

A Maltese is very well known and recognizable due to its long mane of white hair. This hair is one of the features that make the Maltese a very popular toy and show dog, and styling it has become a hobby of sorts for some Maltese owners. One problem that Maltese owners may have is the shedding of their pet's hair. Although this rarely happens since these dogs are not known to be big hair shedders and tend to shed hair at a rather low rate as compared to other long haired breeds, there are instances when a Maltese can shed more than its fair share of coat. To help ensure that this does not happen, you need to follow a few simple Maltese hair care guidelines. [...]

Brittany Coat Care and Tail Docking

While it varies from dog to dog, for the most part the Brittany's coat will be wavy or somewhat feathered; especially on the chest, the legs and the hindquarters. The Brittany does shed regularly but many owners report that with the amount of time the dog spends outside, the quantity seems quite minimal. One of the main draws of owning this breed is their lack of doggy smell as compared to other types of dogs. This is also part of their benefit as a gun dog; no odor allows the Brittany to get as close to its quarry as possible before setting up the point. [...]

Coat Care for Cesky Terriers

The short-legged Cesky terrier has bushy eyebrows, beard, and mustache and a silky, wavy coat. Although all puppies are born black, their coat lightens as they reach a year or two. Their coats are usually several shades of blue-grey with yellow, white, light coffee, gray, or tan furnishings although light coffee is very rare. The coat care for Cesky terriers requires a far amount of time because, although they are non-shedding, their soft coat mats if not looked after properly. For terrier owners not showing their pet, they often choose to keep their dogs coat shorter than the standards for show dogs. [...]

Crazy Shih Tzu Grooming Practices at Dog Shows

Just because you can do something to your dog's hair, doesn't mean you should! There are plenty of very involved procedures that go into creating the shih tzu one sees on televised dog shows. Though most owners keep their dogs in something of a "puppy cut" for trouble-free maintenance, real champion dogs have a longer beauty regimen than many women.Of course, if you have a shih tzu puppy, the adult coat that requires all the maintenance hasn't grown in just yet. In fact, there is a few weeks when your dog transitions between a "puppy coat" and their adult fur that it seems nearly impossible to keep up with all the mats, tangles and loose hair. However, after a few weeks, the adult coat settles down with all the hairs pointing in the right direction. [...]

Coat Care for the West Highland White Terrier

West Highland White Terriers are much loved for their high energy, perky personalities, and their dazzling, long white coat. But bringing home a Westie means making a significant commitment to keeping that thick, white coat neatly trimmed and well taken care of, even if he's not destined for the show ring. In this article, we'll take a look at three of the important parts that make up coat care for Westies - stripping vs. clipping and care between baths. [...]

The Lakeland Terrier and its Special Grooming Needs

Grooming the Lakeland terrier can be very difficult because of their hard wiry coat. Another reason for the difficulty is that most of it is done by hand, making it very time consuming. Although there will be different grooming done on the Lakeland terrier depending on if he is used as a pet or show dog, the dog will still need to be groomed somewhat regularly. If the dog is being groomed as family dog and not shown, you can get by with scissors and clippers. If this dog is not groomed regularly, his hair will not only look shaggy, but will be full of tangles and harder to groom later. [...]

Basic Grooming Supplies

No matter what type of dog you have from a hairless variety such as the Chinese Crested through to a long haired, ringlet style coat of the Komondor, there are some grooming supplies that are just basic. As with most things that you will buy, the most expensive is not necessarily better than the mid price range, but if you buy cheap products you will have to replace them more often, resulting in an overall greater cost in most cases. The basics of good dog grooming include three basic types of supplies and these include brushes and combs, scissors and clippers and bathing supplies. [...]
