How to Control Your Dog's Shedding

FEB 21, 2019 (4).jpg

If you’re a dog owner, then you know one thing is for sure (depending on the breed): they shed. Whether it’s by leaving their fragments of fur on the couch, a rug, or your favorite jacket, nothing is off limits when it comes to a shedding pooch. However, if you feel as if you’re running out of ideas to prevent the shedding, here are a few simple solutions to the problem to take note of:

Keep the Water Bowl Full

One of the best ways to help reduce shedding is to make sure that your dog’s water bowl is full at all times. Sometimes, a dog can get dehydrated and then dry skin kicks in, as a result. When your fur baby’s skin is dry, they will begin to start shedding a tad bit more than usual. The solution is to keep them hydrated, which will keep them in tip-top shape (in terms of their health), and will help their fur stay a bit more intact.

Bathe Regularly

If you can’t recall the last time you gave your pooch a bath, now is the time to do so. Bathing a dog regularly will not only help reduce loose hair follicles from falling and floating around your home, but it will also keep your dog’s coat in excellent condition!

Purchase De-shedding Combs

Another great way to keep your dog’s coat in place is to invest in de-shedding combs and grooming tools. Of course, we highly recommend doing your research first before buying every comb you see in sight. Once you acquire the right one for your dog’s coat, follow the instructions that come with it, and you’ll see a difference over time!
