Bathing: Do bath your dog regularly. While it is not possible to give a blanket rule on exactly how often your dog should be bathed, do it at least once a month. Use shampoo to clean the hair effectively and a brush. Failure to bath your dog will result in accumulation of dirt, and cause other skin infections. Do not bath your dog too frequently and certainly not daily. This will deplete some of the vital oils on your dogs skin and guess what lead to the same risks to its skin that not washing can cause such as scratching and skins tear.
Finally, do specifically clean your dogs ear. A prerequisite for this is regular checking of the ears to see if there is accumulation of dirt. Do not use sharp objects or clean too deep, you might prick the inside and cause infection. Special ear washing substances exit and you need to use soft cotton without pouring too much liquid in the ear. Should you notice any kind of infection, do not clean, take your dog to a veterinarian.
Dog Breeds Grooming A Sheltie. There are standard guidelines for grooming any thick-coated, long-haired breed of dog. You want to use a high quality, pH balanced shampoo intended for dogs; get as much loose coat out as possible while shampooing; rinse repeatedly until the water runs clear; dry the coat from the skin out to the ends, using a moderately warm hand dryer and a slicker brush. When dry, brush the coat again from the skin outward. Finish with a fine-toothed comb to make sure youve gotten any tangles out. Trim hair on the bottom of the feet from between the pads with blunt scissors and trim or grind the nails. Clean the ears with a cotton ball and liquid ear cleaner (dont use Q-tips!) But Shetland sheepdogs also have needs that are particular to the breed. This article is about how to make sure you meet them when you bathe, dry, comb and trim your sheltie.
