Brushing also serves to help to distribute healthy natural skin oils over the hair shaft, promoting a gleaming coat and helping dirt to slide off the hair. This can also help to decrease the need to bath and therefore lessen the frequency of bathing.
Brushing and grooming of your American Mastiff dog are activities that help to reinforce the good connection bond between your family pet and you. Brushing should be an enjoyable and comfy experience for your pet and you.
How Often to Groom Your American Mastiff
Dogs with short coats generally 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 easily.
Some very short-haired canines may not need traditional 'brushing' and for these dogs, owners may rather like to try a soft grooming glove to gently remove loose hair, occasionally.
Canines should be brushed 'as required'. Owners should observe the condition of their dog's coat, trying to find any tangles/mats or dullness which indicates they might need a brush. Grooming can take anything from a couple of minutes to several hours a week depending on your type of dog.
