Written By: Sweety

Brush daily to prevent tangles and mats. Use a slicker brush, followed by a metal comb for thorough detangling.

Brush Buddies

Bathe regularly using a gentle, dog-specific shampoo and conditioner. Avoid over-bathing as it can dry out their skin. 

Bathing Beauties

For stubborn tangles, use a detangling spray or conditioner. Gently work through mats with your fingers or a mat-breaking comb. Never try to force knots out, as it can cause pain.

Detangle Detectives

Trim hair around paws, eyes, and sanitary areas to prevent dirt buildup and irritation. Seek professional grooming help for intricate trims or if your dog is anxious about grooming.

Shear Genius

Regularly clean ears with a dog-specific ear cleanser and cotton balls. This prevents infections and removes excess wax and debris.

Ears for Cheers

Trim nails regularly to prevent overgrowth and discomfort. Use dog nail clippers or a grinder, being careful not to cut the quick (the blood vessel inside the nail).

Nail the Look

Use positive reinforcement with treats, praise, and patience to make grooming a positive experience. Start slow and gradually increase grooming time to build trust and cooperation.
