When it comes to dog grooming, not all breeds are the same. Shedding plays an important part in the grooming of your dog. And sometimes our dogs can leave hair all around the house, which is a big problem. Here we will present you some of the best ways to keep your dog’s hair shedding to a minimum.
Dog grooming to prevent excessive shedding
To be honest, every dog breed will shed their hair. Some not as heavily as others, but shedding is a problem every dog owner faces. Brushing your dog at home, will actually encourage the dog’s skin to produce natural oils that will help condition the dog’s hair.
Breeds with longer hairs and thicker coats should be brushed every 3 days. By doing this, we prevent dead hair buildup and decrease the amount of hair laying around the house.
Professional dog groomers
Regularly making an appointment with a professional dog groomer will make your dog’s coat to flourish. By having a professional deal with the grooming, you will definitely notice a difference, not just with shedding, but also with the dog’s skin and wellbeing. Also professionals are professionals for a reason and they know what to do. They can point you in the right direction and can more thoroughly clean your dog’s coat.
How to remove dog hair
When we get dog hair on our clothes, one of the easiest and best solutions is to use a lint roller. I aways keep one in the car and one nearby in my home. Even though sometimes there is still some hair left on the clothes, it is not an impossible task, and this easy solution can be a great plan A.
Drying your clothes to remove dog hair
Whenever you still have some pesky dog hairs on your clothes that just wont come off, it is the best to just throw your clothes in the dryer, on low settings, along with a microfiber cloth. This will make the dog hairs leave your clothes and stick to the microfiber cloth.
Washing your dog’s bed of hairs
If you notice a lot of hair on your dog’s bedding and blanket, and he spends a lot of time there, then it will always bring old hairs with it and dirty your furniture.
I think it is best to just shake your dog’s blanket in the open and use the lint roller again to remove any left over hair that can stick to the blankets. It is important to wash your dog’s blankets with a pet-safe detergent. This will also improve your dog’s skin and reduce shedding in the future.
Removing dog hair using a vacuum
One of the best solutions for large surfaces is to just vacuum the dog hair. It is probably the solution you already use, but it is important to use it the right way. Always vacuum your furniture in one direction, as this will dramatically increase the amount of hair you can remove.
