Learning About Different Dog Hair Types

Learning about Different Dog Hair Types

When it comes to caring for your pet, it's essential to find someone who genuinely cares about your pet's well-being and will ensure they remain healthy and happy. Our team at Dogs Gone Country in Magnolia offers grooming and boarding services to keep your pet comfortable and safe.

Understanding Different Dog Hair Types

Not all dog hair is the same, and, much like with people, you need to treat different types of dog hair differently:

- Short or Smooth Coats: These coats lie close to the body and may feel more like silky skin than fur. Dogs with this type of coat require less grooming than others but still need regular maintenance to stay in great shape. In between grooming visits, occasional baths and brushing a few times a week should suffice.

- Medium Coats: About an inch long, dogs with medium coats may look fluffy but often don't shed much. You should brush them at least every other day, except during shedding seasons when daily brushing is necessary.

- Long Coats: Dogs with long coats require regular grooming, much like people with long hair. You may also opt for a haircut that helps manage the excess hair, benefiting both you and your dog.

- Wire Coats: These dogs typically don't shed much, making them a preferable choice for those with allergies. The best hair care between grooming visits might involve plucking excess hairs, a skill your groomer can teach you.

- Curly Coats: Dogs with curly coats may not shed much but might require special conditioners to maintain their curls.

- Hairless Dogs: These dogs may not need much extra grooming, but they do require additional protection from the elements.
