Regular bathing of long coated and double coated dogs is recommended, to keep them clean, free of knots/tangles and reduce the chance of skin allergies. Short coated dogs require bathing too, but not as often as double coated dogs, as over bathing a short coated dog can cause its natural oils to come out.
When we bathe a dog we will also ensure its dry and brush it through thoroughly to ensure it is free of knots and tangles, which will keep general upkeep of the coat easier to maintain.
Dogs that require frequent bathing are:
West Highland White Terriers
Shih Tzu's / Lhasa apso's
If you need your dog bathed, please bring them in, it is best to ring us beforehand to see if we can bathe your dog on the day as sometimes, as you can imagine we get busy.
Quite often people with short coated dogs, will have their dogs furminated at the same time.
