Grooming a German Shepherd

If you are the owner of a beautiful German Shepherd you may already know that grooming a German Shepherd requires quite a lot of work to keep this breed not only looking good but also in a good state of health. German Shepherds tend to be out and about and aren’t exactly the indoor type of dog, therefore grooming a German Shepherd needs to also be done more frequently, with a double coat and a large amount of long hair your grooming techniques and routines will vary greatly compared to a short haired breed such as a Labrador.

Grooming a German Shepherd

Grooming a German Shepherd should happen every 2 – 3 months. This involves a good shampoo and conditioner, ear cleaning, oral hygiene and nail clipping. These dogs are usually very active and their nails will wear naturally most of the time but we still need to keep an eye open for long nails. At home groom a German Shepherd by running a brush through his/her coat can be done 4 – 5 times a week. This may seem like a lot but will keep shedding to a minimum and also make your trips to the grooming parlour further apart.

Grooming a German Shepherd Concluded

A lot of people are under the impression that grooming a German Shepherd can be a tedious task. If you start grooming a German Shepherd from a young age, are relaxed, have a safe place to groom your pet and do this regularly you will build up a trust between your yourself and your dog and your grooming sessions can be flawless. It is also important to remember that a sufficient flea and tick treatment is applied as parasites do enjoy the warmth and protection of a breed with this specific coat.
