Each breed of dog has different grooming requirements. Some will require regular grooming at home – some on a daily basis – while some require much less care. The only way to know the best grooming routine for you dog is to talk to a professional groomer. Find a quality groomer soon. Your pet will thank you for it!
Dogs with a normal eye similar to what you see in their wild cousins tend to tear less and without the typical build up of stains. Brachiocephalic breeds (breeds with a shortened muzzle and protuberant eyes), however, tend to ‘tear’ more then breeds without this genetic trait.
When it comes to taking care of your pet, grooming can be as simple as a loving as your pet . . . and sooner or later, just like the love you share, grooming will come more naturally every day.
While you don’t have to run out to the most expensive bulldog barber in town, a good trim can be well worth the dough. Drop the extra money on a good trim once or twice a year.
Not grooming your dog’s nails can lead to many health problems for your dog. One of the most common problems is the nail splitting or tearing. If a nail is left to grow too long a dog can snag it on debris or flooring and rip it right off. This means a lot of pain for your pampered pooch and it also means a high vet bill for you.
Regular brushing is an important part of dog ownership that will keep your dog looking and feeling his best, while also promoting a strong bond between you. How often you should brush your pet may vary- but the positive outcome never will.
