Did you know that like preparing your car or your house, your dog, more specifically his skin and coat, must be prepared to face winter?
Grooming will allow the coat to perform its primary function of insulation much more effectively than if it is dirty, matted or in poor condition.
A good Dogmä shampoo followed by one of our conditioners will moisturize the skin and coat dried out by the drier air in our homes, and your dog will have less itching!
Another reason to groom your pet in winter is the accumulation of salt in the coat. This accumulation of salt can cause skin problems. A good deep shampoo will remove all that harmful salt.
Remember to leave your dog's haircut longer in winter to prevent him from getting cold too quickly. However, the longer the coat, the more maintenance it will require. You must therefore find THE right length of hair that suits you to maintain but which suits your dog too.
What to do at the start of cold weather to properly prepare your dog for winter?! You must remove all excess hair, molting, which prevents warm air from circulating properly between the skin and the coat. A well-groomed dog will have better control over its body heat.
So let’s talk about moulting!
The hair cycle of dogs is quite simple, they grow, then die and fall out constantly. Despite this cycle, twice a year hair loss is accentuated with changes in temperature, in spring and fall.
In spring, shedding is often very intense: the dog loses its winter hair and the coat becomes much lighter.
In autumn, moulting precedes the densification of the hair into winter hair, the hair becomes longer and denser.
Moulting is different from one dog to another depending on its breed. In fact, some breeds barely shed like poodles, others like huskies have a very significant undercoat in winter and hair loss during climate changes can be impressive!
Dogs who are more relaxed (who stay mostly at home) tend to lose their hair all year round because climate changes are only very minimal.
Of course excessive hair loss can be a sign of illness. Associated with pimples or patches on the skin, pruritus also causes significant hair loss; there is certainly a dermatological condition (parasite, infection, allergy, etc.). Certain endocrine diseases also cause hair loss in abnormal patches. If you are unsure whether your dog's shedding is normal, a veterinary consultation is essential.
A good shedding treatment is the key to surviving your pet's hair loss.
The treatment of shedding consists of removing the excess undercoat as well as the dead hair by gently and thoroughly brushing mechanically (brushing) and technically (hydromassage, dryers and suitable treatments, such as Dogmüe) .
The Dogmüe in detail: This formula is rich in active ingredients to help precipitate the loss of dead hair from the undercoat which sometimes struggles to fall out without a little help.
This seasonal treatment will not only allow you to rid your dog's fur of dead hair but also to air out the epidermis and allow the new fur to take its place.
At the end of the grooming, you will feel like you have a brand new, grateful dog and a satisfied owner!
How to use the DOGMUE:
-Shampoo with Detox, then rinse
-Apply DogMüe generously to the dog's body and legs
-Leave it to act for 5 to 10 minutes while brushing
-Proceed with the finishing shampoo depending on the breed and utility.
-You can finish with DogGläm® moisturizing perfume. The latter will help maintain the maintenance of the cut and the smell of your dog between two treatments at your groomer.
Now that shedding, its maintenance and preparing your pet for winter no longer holds any secrets for you, HAPPY WINTER!!!!
