The fur of a dog is different from that of a human. It does not have to be washed as often (normally a maximum of 2 to 4 times a year). It makes sense that if the fur is dirty, especially with light-colored dogs, or spreads an unpleasant odor, there is a need to wash the dog. Washing means using a shampoo: we do this, among other things, to remove flakes of skin, to clean the skin pores, to remove unpleasant odors, and to give shine to the coat, and so on.
Yet dogs with normal skin do not need shampoo. Many shampoos contain highly drying and cleansing components that remove excessive amounts of skin horn or affect the protective fat layer (sebum) of the skin. Fat and skin horn are needed to keep the skin intact and healthy. Most of the shampoos that you can buy in the shops are too aggressive. People's shampoos are, in any case, unsuitable due to high acidity.
Animals with abnormal skin or extreme pollution do need to be washed more regularly.
Why do I use special shampoo?
For washing the dog I therefore use a special and a special dog shampoo. Adapted to the type of coat, skin and the amount of pollution, I use a different type of shampoo. Usually the dog needs to be washed and rinsed twice.
For dogs with sensitive skin or with uninvited guests (fleas), I use a special shampoos.
Be careful when applying anti-flea medicine: After washing your dog is clean again. But because the shampoo has removed the fat layer (sebum), it is necessary to wait at least 3 days before applying an anti-flea or tick remover. This agent spreads through the skin layer of the dog through the fat layer. Discuss this with me.
What do I do after washing the dog?
After washing the dog I dry your animal with the help of a water blower (a kind of strong hair dryer) and I cut it further in the desired model.
