Owning a a Greyhound and need to know how often do a Greyhound Dog need to be groomed or should you bathe a Greyhound?

Why Brush or Groom Your Greyhound Dog?
Brushing also serves to help to spread healthy natural skin oils over the hair shaft, ensuring a shiny coat and helping dust to slide off the hair. This can also help to lessen the need to bath and therefore lessen the regularity of bathing.
Brushing and grooming of your Greyhound dog are activities that help to reinforce the good connection bond between your pet dog and you. Brushing should be a pleasant and comfy experience for your pet and you.
How Often to Groom Your Greyhound
Dogs with short coats typically require 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 easily.
Some very short-haired canines may not need standard '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 keep an eye on the condition of their dog's coat, searching for any tangles/mats or dullness which suggests they might need a brush. Grooming can take anything from a few minutes to several hours a week depending on your type of dog.
Known as "the world's fastest couch potato," the greyhound is quiet, calm and extremely well-mannered indoors. They are good with other dogs, and with other pets if raised with them; outdoors, they tend to chase any small thing that moves. They are reserved with strangers, very sensitive and sometimes timid. Despite their independent nature, they are eager to please.
