Do Brittany Dogs Need To Be Groomed Regularly?
Owning a a Brittany and want to know how often do a Brittany Dog need to be groomed or should you bathe a Brittany?
According to dog experts, Brittany Dogs score out of 5 in the scale of dog breeds that need grooming regularly.
Regular brushing of the medium-length, flat coat is really all that is needed to keep it in good condition. Bathe or dry shampoo when necessary. A low-maintenance dog, but careful trimming is necessary if you plan on showing them. Check the ears carefully, especially when the dog has been out in rough or brushy terrain. This breed is a light shedder.
Why Brush or Groom Your Brittany 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 decrease the need to bath and therefore reduce the occurrence of bathing.
Brushing and grooming of your Brittany dog are activities that help to reinforce the positive relationship bond between your pet dog and you. Brushing should be a pleasant and comfortable experience for your pet and you.
How Often to Groom Your Brittany
Dogs with short coats usually 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 quickly.
Some very short-haired canines may not need conventional 'brushing' and for these dogs, owners may instead like to try a soft grooming glove to gently remove loose hair, occasionally.
Pet dogs should be brushed 'as needed'. Owners should keep track of 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 several hours a week depending on your type of dog.
In temperament, the Brittany is friendly and eager to please. These friendly little dogs hunt more like a Setter due to their pointing ability, and are higher on their legs than other Spaniels. The Brittany does not require a heavy hand in training. In fact, they may quit if the discipline is too stern. Much more is accomplished with a gentle hand. They seek human attention, which makes them easier to train than some other hunting breeds. They make close working hunting dogs, fine companions, and family pets.
