If you have three dogs you will have some hair in your home and depending on the type of dogs you have, it may be a lot of hair. You will never be able to get rid of all of it but you can cut down on how much is in your house. Below are two tips to help you so you and your furry friends can all be happy.
Take Your Dogs to a Dog Groomer
One of the first things you should do is take your dogs to a groomer to have their hair trimmed. The groomer will first check your dogs for fleas and ticks. If found, they will give the dogs a flea bath. They will then bathe your dogs and dry their hair with a blow dryer set to the cool air setting.
The dog groomer will brush your dogs with a special brush that removes all loose hair. The dog groomer will also be able to remove even more hair to help control shedding using a shedding tool. This tool removes more hair than traditional brushing. This will not stop shedding completely, but it will drastically cut down on how much hair they do shed.
Other services they may offer include trimming their nails, cleaning their ears, trimming their feet and pads, and putting cologne on your dogs to make them smell great.
Take Care of Your Dogs at Home
Once you get home from the dog groomer it is up to you to continue combing and brushing your dogs' fur. Make this a daily routine at the same time each day. Your dogs may look forward to the alone time they get to spend with you. Purchase a special comb that is made to remove loose dog fur from a local pet store.
Bathe your dogs regularly. How often this is depends on the type of dog breeds you have. Talk with your veterinarian if you have questions.
Give your dog's flea and tick protection once per month. There are also flea collars on the market that offer protection for a few months. If your dogs have fleas they will scratch more which will cause them to lose hair.
If any of your dogs has excessive shedding throughout the year there may be a medical reason for this. For example, you may notice bald spots in different areas on their body. If you are noticing this, take your dogs to the veterinarian for treatment.
