How To Find A Good Dog Groomer! Selecting a good, professional and friendly groomer is an important part of caring for your dog. Since a groomer will usually be alone with your favorite pet it is important to make sure that they treat your animal well, notify you of any problems, as well as understand how to care for an clip your particular breed of dog.
Shelties have an undercoat and a top coat, except on their bellies and abdomens. Both coats have to be checked for tangles, then brushed out separately when dry. The undercoat is thick and wooly, while the top coat is smoother. When shampooing, make sure you massage shampoo and water down into the undercoat all the way to the skin. Pay special attention to the area under the tail to eliminate urine and fecal staining; and make sure no fecal matter is trapped in the hair around the anus. When rinsing, lift the top coat with your hands to make sure youre getting all the shampoo out of the undercoat.
Hair clipping and brushing: Do brush your dogs hair regularly and clip it as often as is necessary. Do use the right tools; here we are talking both brushes and hair clippers. Besides the aesthetic value of hair brushing and clipping, other benefits include the ease of removal of dirt during bathing and the prevention of matting. Do not brush with too much force as this may cause injury. When matting has occurred, then brush gently or better still, just clip the hair. Do not clip too close to the skin to give your dog a naked look. This will be harmful as it exposes your dog to skins cuts.
