Do Borzoi Dogs Need To Be Groomed Regularly?
Owning a a Borzoi and need to know how often do a Borzoi Dog need to be groomed or should you bathe a Borzoi?
According to pet experts, Borzoi Dogs score out of 5 in the scale of dog breeds that require grooming regularly.
Moderate Maintenance: The Borzoi’s long, silky coat can be flat, wavy or even a little curly. Although it looks glamorous, it’s not especially difficult to care for. It’s resistant to dirt and mud, which just drops off when the coat dries. Brush the coat weekly with a pin brush. Be sure to check for mats behind the ears and in the area where the legs meet the body. Bathe the Borzoi only as needed.
Why Brush or Groom Your Borzoi Dog?
Brushing also assists to spread healthy natural skin oils over the hair shaft, ensuring a gleaming coat and helping dirt to slide off the hair. This can also help to lessen the need to bath and therefore lessen the occurrence of bathing.
Brushing and grooming of your Borzoi dog are tasks that help to reinforce the good connection bond between your pet and you. Brushing should be a pleasurable and comfortable experience for your pet and you.
How Often to Groom Your Borzoi
Dogs with short coats normally 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 easily.
Some very short-haired pet dogs may not need standard 'brushing' and for these dogs, owners may instead like to try a soft grooming glove to gently remove loose hair, occasionally.
Dogs should be brushed 'as required'. Owners should keep an eye on 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 several hours a week depending on your type of dog.
A breed of quiet elegance, the borzoi exemplifies the well-mannered house dog. Outdoors, it races with wild abandon, and it will chase any small animal that runs. It is independent but very sensitive. Although generally good with children, it may not be playful enough to satisfy some children. Some can be timid. It is reserved with strangers.
