Why Brush or Groom Your Bavarian Mountain Hound Dog?
Brushing also assists to distribute healthy natural skin oils over the hair shaft, promoting a shining coat and helping dust to slide off the hair. This can also help to reduce the need to bath and therefore lessen the occurrence of bathing.
Brushing and grooming of your Bavarian Mountain Hound dog are activities that help to reinforce the positive relationship bond between your pet and you. Brushing should be a pleasurable and relaxed experience for your pet and you.
How Often to Groom Your Bavarian Mountain Hound
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 dogs may not need standard 'brushing' and for these dogs, owners may rather like to try a soft grooming glove to gently remove loose hair, occasionally.
Dogs should be brushed 'as needed'. Owners should observe 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 few minutes to several hours a week depending on your type of dog.
