Why Brush or Groom Your Bouvier des Ardennes Dog?
Brushing also assists to distribute healthy natural skin oils over the hair shaft, promoting a glossy coat and helping dirt to slide off the hair. This can also help to decrease the need to bath and therefore decrease the occurrence of bathing.
Brushing and grooming of your Bouvier des Ardennes dog are activities that help to reinforce the positive relationship bond between your family pet and you. Brushing should be an enjoyable and comfortable experience for your pet and you.
How Often to Groom Your Bouvier des Ardennes
Dogs with short coats commonly 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 dogs may not need conventional 'brushing' and for these dogs, owners may rather like to try a soft grooming glove to delicately remove loose hair, occasionally.
Pet dogs should be brushed 'as needed'. Owners should monitor the condition of their dog's coat, searching 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.
