Brushing also assists to spread healthy natural skin oils over the hair shaft, ensuring a glossy coat and helping dust to slide off the hair. This can also help to reduce the need to bath and therefore lessen the regularity of bathing.
Brushing and grooming of your Smooth Fox Terrier dog are activities that help to reinforce the good connection bond between your pet dog and you. Brushing should be a pleasurable and comfortable experience for your pet and you.
How Often to Groom Your Smooth Fox Terrier
Dogs with short coats usually 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 instead like to try a soft grooming glove to carefully remove loose hair, occasionally.
Dogs should be brushed 'as required'. Owners should monitor the condition of their dog's coat, searching for any tangles/mats or dullness which indicates they might need a brush. Grooming can take anything from a few minutes to several hours a week depending on your type of dog.
