Do Tornjak Dogs Need To Be Groomed Regularly?
Wanting to adopt a Tornjak and want to know how often do a Tornjak Dog need to be groomed or should you bathe a Tornjak?
According to pet experts, Tornjak Dogs score out of 5 in the scale of dog breeds that require grooming regularly.
Why Brush or Groom Your Tornjak Dog?
Brushing also helps to spread 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 reduce the need to bath and therefore lower the occurrence of bathing.
Brushing and grooming of your Tornjak dog are tasks that help to strengthen the positive connection bond between your pet and you. Brushing should be a pleasurable and comfy experience for your pet and you.
How Often to Groom Your Tornjak
Dogs with short coats frequently require much 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 dogs may not need traditional 'brushing' and for these dogs, owners may instead like to try a soft grooming glove to carefully remove loose hair, occasionally.
Pet dogs should be brushed 'as needed'. Owners should observe the condition of their dog's coat, searching 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.
Tornjak has a calm temperament. A typical adult Tornjak is very calm, peaceful, at first sight an indifferent animal, but when the situation demands it, it is a vigilant and very alert watchdog. The character is equal to the temperament; they are not nervous nor aggressive. In general, they are very tough, not too demanding, sturdy dogs. With their human family they are very emotional. When living in a pack they are highly social animals and there isn't any fighting between the pack members. Towards strangers or other animals, as a rule, Tornjak is not overly aggressive. But when the situation calls upon it, Tornjak is quite decisive and it can without any consideration attack even much stronger rivals. Shepherds used to say that a Tornjak who guards the flock is a fair match to two wolves, and a couple will confront and chase away a bear without any undue respect. In these situations Tornjaks are very tenacious.
