Any dog that has long hair needs to have it groomed every now and then or even more often. It is a big chore but it needs to be done. Many people that have these dogs with long hair take their pet to the groomer however you could also do it at home with a little work.

When bath time comes you must remember to use a shampoo and also a conditioner. You must use both because the shampoo removes the dirt and the conditioner will help stop tangles.

Tools that are also useful for dog grooming are brushes, combs and rakes. You will need these tools to detangle your dog’s hair. By using the proper tools will help stop some huge tangles in the future.

When you brush your dog you are taking out dust, dead skin, loose hair, and tangles. By brushing your dog in the spring and fall helps them shed the extra coat. There are special brushes that your groomer will use on your dog. They have shorter and sharper bristles and they cover a large matted area.

Drying the dog’s hair is a must after they have been groomed. You need to have a hair dryer if you are planning to groom your dog’s hair. By drying the hair quickly prevents any mattes or tangles that can occur in wet hair. Wet fur tangle more then dry fur.

You will need to have good scissors to remove and hair that is around the dog’s eyes and in the ears. Some breeds get mattes around the eyes that are caused by discharge so it is a good idea to have the hair in this area short preventing this from happening.
