Brushing also helps to distribute healthy natural skin oils over the hair shaft, ensuring a glossy coat and helping dirt to slide off the hair. This can also help to decrease the need to bath and therefore lessen the occurrence of bathing.
Brushing and grooming of your Alopekis dog are activities that help to strengthen the positive relationship bond between your family pet and you. Brushing should be a pleasurable and comfortable experience for your pet and you.
How Often to Groom Your Alopekis
Dogs with short coats normally require less brushing and grooming compared to dogs with medium to long haired coats as these longer coats can get tangles, mats and debris trapped in them more quickly.
Some very short-haired dogs may not need conventional 'brushing' and for these dogs, owners may instead like to try a soft grooming glove to gently remove loose hair, occasionally.
Pet dogs should be brushed 'as required'. Owners should monitor the condition of their dog's coat, looking for any tangles/mats or dullness which suggests they might need a brush. Grooming can take anything from a couple of minutes to a number of hours a week depending on your type of dog.
