Your canine's skin and coat can be used as a health indicator.

A healthy coat should be shiny and smooth instead of brittle or coarse. Healthy skin should be supple and clear, not greasy, flaky, or bumpy. Your canine's health and nutrition has an effect on the shine and texture of your dog’s coat from inside of the body and regular grooming and skin care on the outside will assist in your canine's overall health.

All dogs benefit from regular grooming to remove loose hairs and dead skin cells, to keep the coat free of dirt, debris, and external parasites, and to distribute natural skin oils along the hair shafts.

Dogs with long, silky or curly coats require daily brushing to keep their hair from becoming tangled or matted, especially around the ears, in the armpits, or along the back of the legs. Dogs with short hair coats may require less frequent brushing. However, daily brushing of any dog that sheds will cut down dramatically on the amount of loose hair and dog dander floating around the home and will also cut down on the amount of hair that the dog swallows in the course of self-grooming with his tongue.

How often should I bathe my dog?

Most dogs require bathing on an occasional basis usually when their coat becomes dirty. Non-shedding breeds that have no health issues usually need to be bathed about every six to eight weeks, at the time of their regular grooming. Dogs that have a heavy undercoat will benefit from bathing in the spring or fall, when they are undergoing their seasonal shedding.

How often your individual dog needs to be bathed will vary somewhat with his age, lifestyle, type of hair coat, and underlying health status. Finally, if your dog has allergies, your veterinarian may prescribe frequent bathing as part of the treatment regime - with some of these dogs, daily bathing may be necessary until the problem is under control.

Dogs should only be bathed with a shampoo that is formulated for use on dogs - their skin has a different thickness and pH (acidity) than human skin. Human shampoo, including baby shampoo, is far too harsh for their skin. For regular bathing, a hypoallergenic shampoo without any added perfumes is the best choice. For optimum results, a conditioning product should be applied afterwards to restore any lost moisture to the skin and minimize the development of dandruff after the bath. We recommend you use Pupper's Shampoo and Conditioner.
