Why Brush or Groom Your Cairn Terrier Dog?
Brushing also serves to help to spread healthy natural skin oils over the hair shaft, promoting a shining coat and helping dirt to slide off the hair. This can also help to minimize the need to bath and therefore decrease the occurrence of bathing.
Brushing and grooming of your Cairn Terrier dog are activities that help to reinforce the positive relationship bond between your family pet and you. Brushing should be an enjoyable and relaxed experience for your pet and you.
How Often to Groom Your Cairn Terrier
Dogs with short coats frequently 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 dogs may not need standard 'brushing' and for these dogs, owners may instead like to try a soft grooming glove to delicately remove loose hair, occasionally.
Pet dogs should be brushed 'as required'. Owners should keep track of the condition of their dog's coat, trying to find any tangles/mats or dullness which indicates they might need a brush. Grooming can take anything from a few minutes to several hours a week depending on your type of dog.
