Do Standard Poodle Dogs Need To Be Groomed Regularly?
Thinking to get a Standard Poodle and want to know how often do a Standard Poodle Dog need to be groomed or should you bathe a Standard Poodle?
According to pet experts, Standard Poodle Dogs score out of 5 in the scale of dog breeds that need grooming regularly.
High Maintenance: Regular weekly grooming with a brush and the occasional bath will keep them clean and looking their best. Grooming can be a wonderful bonding experience for you and your pet. Their strong fast-growing nails should be trimmed regularly with a nail clipper or grinder to avoid overgrowth, splitting and cracking. Their ears should be checked regularly to avoid a buildup of wax and debris which can result in an infection. Teeth should be brushed regularly.
Why Brush or Groom Your Standard Poodle Dog?
Brushing also helps to distribute healthy natural skin oils over the hair shaft, promoting a gleaming coat and helping dust to slide off the hair. This can also help to minimize the need to bath and therefore reduce the frequency of bathing.
Brushing and grooming of your Standard Poodle dog are tasks that help to strengthen the good relationship bond between your pet and you. Brushing should be a pleasurable and comfortable experience for your pet and you.
How Often to Groom Your Standard Poodle
Dogs with short coats frequently 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 quickly.
Some very short-haired pet dogs may not need standard 'brushing' and for these dogs, owners may instead like to try a soft grooming glove to delicately remove loose hair, occasionally.
Dogs should be brushed 'as needed'. Owners should keep track of the condition of their dog's coat, trying to find 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.
