According to dog experts, Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen Dogs score out of 5 in the scale of dog breeds that need grooming regularly.
They need to be brushed regularly, but not daily, to avoid matting and tangles. To keep the coat well groomed it must be stripped. Hairs must be pulled out of the coat using either a special stripping tool or the finger and thumb. The coat is shallow rooted and is made to come out if trapped, so this grooming method causes no pain. They need regular ear cleanings to prevent yeast infections and clipping of the claws is normally needed once or twice a month.
Why Brush or Groom Your Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen Dog?
Brushing also assists to distribute healthy natural skin oils over the hair shaft, promoting a glossy coat and helping dust to slide off the hair. This can also help to lessen the need to bath and therefore lower the occurrence of bathing.
Brushing and grooming of your Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen dog are activities that help to enhance the positive connection bond between your family pet and you. Brushing should be a pleasurable and comfy experience for your pet and you.
How Often to Groom Your Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen
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 easily.
Some very short-haired canines may not need conventional 'brushing' and for these dogs, owners may rather like to try a soft grooming glove to gently remove loose hair, occasionally.
Canines should be brushed 'as needed'. Owners should keep track of 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 several hours a week depending on your type of dog.
