Brushing and grooming of your Norwich Terrier dog are activities that help to strengthen the good relationship bond between your dog and you. Brushing should be a pleasurable and comfy experience for your pet and you.
How Often to Groom Your Norwich Terrier
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 canines 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.
Pet dogs should be brushed 'as required'. Owners should keep an eye on the condition of their dog's coat, looking for any tangles/mats or dullness which indicates 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.
