Do Korean Jindo Dogs Need To Be Groomed Regularly?
Wanting to own a Korean Jindo and need to know how often do a Korean Jindo Dog need to be groomed or should you bathe a Korean Jindo?
According to pet experts, Korean Jindo Dogs score out of 5 in the scale of dog breeds that require grooming regularly.
Moderate Maintenance: The Jindo has a double coat that sheds heavily twice a year. During the shedding season, extra care must be given to the coat. Warm baths can help the process along. Daily brushing is necessary to remove the undercoat. Otherwise, be prepared for rolling tumbleweeds of undercoat.
Why Brush or Groom Your Korean Jindo Dog?
Brushing also helps to distribute healthy natural skin oils over the hair shaft, promoting a glossy coat and helping dirt to slide off the hair. This can also help to reduce the need to bath and therefore minimize the frequency of bathing.
Brushing and grooming of your Korean Jindo dog are activities that help to reinforce the good connection bond between your dog and you. Brushing should be a pleasant and comfortable experience for your pet and you.
How Often to Groom Your Korean Jindo
Dogs with short coats generally require much 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 standard 'brushing' and for these dogs, owners may rather like to try a soft grooming glove to carefully remove loose hair, occasionally.
Canines should be brushed 'as needed'. Owners should keep an eye on 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.
Korean Jindo Information
The Jindo is an enthusiastic hunter, able to follow cold trails of rabbit, raccoon, and badger. In packs, Jindo can hunt even wild boars and roe deer. Jindos are renowned for their loyalty to family members and their attachment to their home. Jindos have often been known to travel long distances to return to their original owner. The Jindo has a fastidious nature and puppies are housebroken with little training. Jindos also keep their coats extremely clean. Jindos are, by nature, watchful of other dogs and may, on their own territory, react aggressively to intruding dogs. Jindos are highly intelligent but because of their independent nature, respond best to positive reinforcement training, and preferably from their owner. While the Jindo is devoted to its owner, they are aloof and suspicious toward strangers.
