Does regular grooming help with shedding?

Updated: Feb 26, 2020

All dogs need a regular grooming routine to help their skin and coat stay in tip top condition. Regular brushing and trips to the groomers could minimise the amount of dog hair you find around your home – and your pet will be healthier and happier for it too.

However, each dog breed has different needs and it’s important to choose the right grooming routine and tools for your pet. For example, you’re likely to need a very different brush for a Pug than you would need for a Bichon Frise.

For dogs that typically shed quite a lot, there are a number of different De-Shedding tools and brushes available that can help to reduce shed hair.

They do this by removing loose hair with ease and reaching beneath the top coat to gently remove the undercoat. The great thing about these tools is that they have a wide variety designed to suit the specific needs of different types of dogs with different types of coats.

Of course, as well as De-Shedding tools, regular brushing with the right brush to suit your pet’s needs will also help to manage those moulting periods.

We also offer a dedicated De-Shedding treatment. Please note that the De-Shedding treatment isn’t suitable for all coat types. We will be able to guide you on the whether this treatment is suitable for your dog.
