Short-Haired Dog Grooming

BY NICOLE IPSON | February 22, 2018



It is commonly thought that a short-haired dog doesn’t need a professional groom.  When people think about grooming the first thing that comes to mind is long-haired dogs. However, your short-haired dog’s professional groom is very beneficial!

Most short-haired dogs give the impression that they don’t shed quite as much as a long-haired dog. Or that they may even be easier to bathe because of the lack of length of hair. However, a lot of owners come to find that caring for their pup or slowing the surprising amount of shed their pup has to offer can be time-consuming. There are actually several double-coated dogs that have short hair.  Dogs such as Labrador Retrievers, Pugs (Certain Types), & Chihuahuas (Certain Types). Even though a dog may not be double-coated they can still tend to shed as well. Dogs such as Jack Russell Terriers and Boston Terriers can still give their owners vacuums a run for their money.dogs
