Next: How to Groom Your Dog at Home
DO RIGHT BY YOUR BREED
We don’t need to tell you that not all breeds are made alike, and that’s true of their fur as well as their personalities. Certain breeds are much more difficult to groom and maintain than others. A Puli, with its long, thick cords of fur, has much more intense grooming requirements than a Peruvian Hairless Dog, for one obvious example. When choosing a dog to adopt, consider the extent of its grooming needs, and if your pooch is a mixed breed, note its lineage when planning your good grooming habits.
