Short-haired dog breeds have many advantages over long-haired breeds. One of these is that short-haired dog breeds do not shed as much hair. While a shaggier coat makes a dog look softer and aesthetically more comfortable, it must be remembered that more hair means more time spent on bathing and grooming. Short hair is also good because pests can not hide very well on them, so they are better from a hygienic point of view.

Here are some grooming tips for short-haired dog breeds.

- Brush your dog regularly, preferably at least once a day. Be sure to brush against the direction of hair growth to monitor pests.

- Stainless steel combs are best for short-haired dogs. Smoother brushes are better for medium to long-haired dogs. Use a flea comb during summer days to make sure your dog has not attracted these parasites. A brush for bristles can be a final touch to add shine to the dog’s coat.

- If your dog tends to avoid being brushed due to dislike of the process, it may be a good idea to try brushing immediately after playtime. Start gently by brushing in the direction of hair growth. Remember that successful training means frequent rewards. Give your dog a treat when the first brushing is complete. Increase the length of the brushing sessions little by little to get the dog used to it.

- Brushing is also important before giving your dog a bath. Wet matte hair will only cause problems later, so make sure there is no hair before continuing with the bath. Water and good shampoo in a sink work well for small dogs. Note that shampoos used by humans are not good for dogs and can cause irritation that may require medication. Start with the tail and wash the head the last. No one likes soap in his or her eyes.

- Rinse as many times as necessary to ensure that all remaining shampoo is rinsed out of the dog's fur. https://everydoghas.com/%e0%b8%aa%e0%b8%b8%e0%b8%99%e0%b8%b1%e0%b8%82%e0...

- Short-haired dog breeds naturally dry faster. Usually a mild towel rub is all they need. Long-haired dogs need more attention and you should consider brushing your hair while it dries to avoid tangling.

- If your dog has a tendency to dislike bathing, remember to reward it with a treat after each bathing session.
