Why Brush or Groom Your Swedish Lapphund Dog?
Brushing also serves to help to spread healthy natural skin oils over the hair shaft, promoting a shining coat and helping dust to slide off the hair. This can also help to lessen the need to bath and therefore decrease the occurrence of bathing.
Brushing and grooming of your Swedish Lapphund dog are activities that help to strengthen the good relationship bond between your pet dog and you. Brushing should be a pleasant and comfortable experience for your pet and you.
How Often to Groom Your Swedish Lapphund
Dogs with short coats usually require 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 traditional 'brushing' and for these dogs, owners may rather like to try a soft grooming glove to gently remove loose hair, occasionally.
Pet 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.
