dog grooming is one of your dog's basic needs and an important part of dog ownership 

here are some basic dog grooming guidelines

 

HAIR BRUSHING

  • long haired dogs usually require daily brushing  to prevent matting and tangling of the hair

  • medium haired dogs should be brushed weekly

  • short haired dogs should be brushed monthly

NAIL CLIPPING

  • a monthly trim is recommended

some dogs develop an aversion to having their feet touched, hence some problems owners encounter when cutting their pets' nails.

BATH

  • a monthly wash is recommended, but a weekly one is not harmful

  • use an appropriate dog shampoo especially if your dog presents some skin conditions

EAR CLEANING

  • ​​a wekly ear cleaning session is recommended

  • use warm or tepid water with a cotton bud

  • or use a special ear cleaner solution

  • check that your dog's ears do not smell 

  • if it does, his ears might be infected

plucking your dog's ears also help keeping them clean from bacteria

 

dogs ears can be a haven for bacteria and yeast if not kept clean;

some dogs are predisposed to ear infection, especially dogs with floppy ears as less air passes through the ear canal
