Getting The Perfect Winter Coat
There is a common misconception that dogs don’t need to be groomed during the cooler months. As groomers, we know that’s a myth.
Less sun exposure during cooler months actually stimulates hair growth, which will make your dog’s coat thicker, according to Otto. It’s okay to keep the coat a bit longer than usual since the coat will add some protection during the cooler months, but pet parents should keep dogs on a regular grooming schedule.
Decrease doggy shave down chances by educating pet parents on longer coat maintenance requirements.
“I always like to send pet parents home with an Andis Soft-Tooth Slicker Brush, which simultaneously removes undercoat to prevent matting and stimulates hair growth for healthier hair,” Otto said.
