Tips on Grooming Your Canaan Dog
Low Maintenance: If you want a medium-size dog with an easy-care coat, the Canaan is one to consider. He has a double coat, but little brushing is required to keep it in good condition. Give it a weekly going over with a rubber curry brush or hound mitt to remove dead hair and distribute skin oils.
Why Brush or Groom Your Canaan Dog?
Brushing also helps to distribute healthy natural skin oils over the hair shaft, ensuring a glossy coat and helping dust to slide off the hair. This can also help to decrease the need to bath and therefore minimize the occurrence of bathing.
Brushing and grooming of your Canaan Dog dog are activities that help to reinforce the good connection bond between your dog and you. Brushing should be a pleasant and comfy experience for your pet and you.
How Often to Groom Your Canaan Dog
Dogs with short coats generally 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 pet 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.
Dogs should be brushed 'as needed'. Owners should observe the condition of their dog's coat, trying to find any tangles/mats or dullness which suggests 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.
