Do Bearded Collie Dogs Need To Be Groomed Regularly?
Owning a a Bearded Collie and want to know how often do a Bearded Collie Dog need to be groomed or should you bathe a Bearded Collie?
According to dog experts, Bearded Collie Dogs score out of 5 in the scale of dog breeds that require grooming regularly.
High Maintenance: With long flowing double coats that do shed they will require daily to weekly brushing to prevent mats, so plan to spend a part of every day grooming your Bearded Collie. This breed has a heavy shed once a year so more frequent grooming during that period can be expected. Their nails should be trimmed regularly to avoid overgrowth and cracking. Their ears should be checked regularly to avoid a buildup of wax and debris which can result in an infection. Teeth should be brushed regularly.
Why Brush or Groom Your Bearded Collie Dog?
Brushing also helps to spread healthy natural skin oils over the hair shaft, ensuring a shining coat and helping dust to slide off the hair. This can also help to lessen the need to bath and therefore lower the frequency of bathing.
Brushing and grooming of your Bearded Collie dog are activities that help to enhance the positive relationship bond between your dog and you. Brushing should be an enjoyable and comfy experience for your pet and you.
How Often to Groom Your Bearded Collie
Dogs with short coats typically require much less brushing and grooming contrasted 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 pet dogs may not need conventional 'brushing' and for these dogs, owners may instead like to try a soft grooming glove to carefully remove loose hair, occasionally.
Pet dogs should be brushed 'as required'. Owners should keep track of the condition of their dog's coat, looking for any tangles/mats or dullness which indicates 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.
