When it comes to dog grooming supplies, it usually comes the question of personal preference as to how much time, money and patience you are willing to spend on your pet’s grooming. However, if you can’t see yourself combing or brushing your dog every day, choose a short haired or hairless breed. Dog grooming supplies for your pet are easy to find, but here again, care must be taken to buy good quality products.
Long, medium or short hair all require a very different kind of brush or comb so be sure and choose the right one. Dog Grooming supplies such as de-tangling and protective sprays for long hair, cleaning powders for rough haired and specific oils for the hairless all need to be carefully chosen.
Long hair obviously comes most expensive in dog grooming supplies. Even more care must be taken to select the correct shampoos and finishing sprays. If they are combed through every day, with a comb such as Grooming Comb with Handle by MiracleCorp it really isn’t too much of a chore. It can become a very special moment, enjoyed both by your pet and yourself.
If your pet comes back from a walk covered in mud and his coat has been protected by the correct dog grooming supplies, he only needs to dry out and be thoroughly brushed to look as good as new. As you can see, regular maintenance is certainly worth while.
Making sure your wire haired dog is stripped rather than clipped will add to the resistance of his coat, as well as looking a whole lot better. In between sessions, the correct dog grooming supplies can ensure that his coat retains its qualities. Special powders are available to keep the rough coat just right, ready for its next stripping session. It really is important that coats retain their natural waterproofing and protective qualities, and this can only be done by correct maintenance.
Using a special glove, available from all suppliers, will help your smooth coated pet’s circulation, and give his coat a lovely sheen. With a soft brush and a touch of spray he will sparkle and he will love the attention!
Above all, consider whether you really want the trouble of extensive fur maintenance. It always seems such a shame to buy a long haired pet because it looked ‘so pretty’ only to have it all clipped off because his coat became too tangled. If you want a trouble free pet, then choose a short haired or hairless dog.
So think carefully, buy the right dog grooming supplies, and above all, enjoy your dog.
