Why do dogs need grooming?


The primary rule is that hair grooming, cosmetics are indispensable conditions of responsible dog keeping. Each dog feels itself well, if it may live in a fur that is clean, groomed, orderly and free of parasites, independently of the fact whether it is a long or a short haired dog. Many people select short-haired species, because they think they do not have to deal with their hair. However, this is not so! When during a walk a foreign person glances at the dog, he gets his first impression based on the grooming of its hair. It is like the hairdressing of humans. If our hair is groomed and clean, we make a good impression on foreign people even if it is not cut according to the most recent fashion.

The view of an ill-kempt, dirty dog triggers revulsion or fright in most of the people. In addition to this one should not forget that under the shaggy fur the skin of the dog is not aired properly. A hairball can be the hotbed for all kinds of diseases and parasites. Therefore, the grooming of the hair of the dogs is not a needless waste of money. Just the contrary. It saves money for the dog owner, since later on the possible vet costs may significantly exceed the number of expenditures spent on the tools needed and the dog cosmetician visits required from time to time. The selection of the species is free. Everybody may find the dog species that is appropriate for his habits and naturally, that matches his manual skills and his time that may be used for grooming the hair of the dog. We would like to provide some assistance in this regard in the present article, since good selection may make the living together with the dog happier and easier, both for the family and for the dog. Dogs living as pets are often different from the standard ones, not only anatomically, but as regards their hair as well. It may happen that the keeper selects a long-haired species, but he has no time for daily grooming. Therefore he has the fur of the dog cut shorter, the grooming of which may be solved on weekly one or two occasions. This does not mean that these dogs would be valueless. Moreover, for their keeper, they will be always the most beautiful and the dearest. Simply put: it is indifferent what fur the dog has, it does not matter whether the dog meets the standard or not, nevertheless it is essential that it should be groomed and kept well!

There are so many types of dogs in the world: there are small ones, medium ones and large ones and even giant ones. There are guarding-protecting dogs and there are also hunting dogs. Moreover, their furs are also not the same. There are very many hair types. In the case of some species, we may differ not only several sizes but even different hair types. Just think about the Dachshunds. There are not only three sizes, but there are three different hair types as well (short, stringy and long). Therefore, we already may talk about nine different species.
