Do English Setter Dogs Need To Be Groomed Regularly?
Owning a an English Setter and need to know how often do an English Setter Dog need to be groomed or should you bathe an English Setter?
According to pet experts, English Setter Dogs score out of 5 in the scale of dog breeds that need grooming regularly.
Moderate Maintenance: A bath every two to three weeks will keep him clean. Unless you show your dog, you can always trim his coat for easier upkeep. The rest is basic care. Trim the nails as needed, usually every few weeks. Brush the teeth frequently for good overall health and fresh breath.
Why Brush or Groom Your English Setter Dog?
Brushing also assists to distribute healthy natural skin oils over the hair shaft, ensuring a gleaming coat and helping dust to slide off the hair. This can also help to minimize the need to bath and therefore reduce the regularity of bathing.
Brushing and grooming of your English Setter dog are activities that help to enhance the positive connection bond between your family pet and you. Brushing should be a pleasant and relaxed experience for your pet and you.
How Often to Groom Your English Setter
Dogs with short coats commonly 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 easily.
Some very short-haired pet dogs may not need traditional 'brushing' and for these dogs, owners may rather like to try a soft grooming glove to gently remove loose hair, occasionally.
Dogs should be brushed 'as needed'. Owners should monitor the condition of their dog's coat, looking for 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.
English Setter Information
Bred to cover a lot of area when hunting, the English setter is a lively dog that loves to hunt and run. This is especially true of dogs from field lines. If not given sufficient exercise, they can be overly lively inside. With daily exertion, however, they are calm and tractable house dogs. Those from conformation lines are particularly laid-back and gentle and excel with children and less active adults. This is an amiable, easygoing breed that gets along well with children, strangers and other dogs.
