Beauty treatments for different hair textures
- Medium and long-haired and long-haired dogs
Represented by German Shepherds, Golden Retrievers, Bernese Mountains and Samoyeds, their coats are composed of upper medium-long hair+ and inner dense undercoat. This kind of hair will not continue to grow after a certain length, but when the weather is hot, the inner layer of fluff will fall off and dissipate heat. Especially in summer, dog owners need to comb the inner layer of floating hair to prevent their dogs from licking.
- long haired dog
Class representatives of long-haired dogs are ancient shepherd dogs, cocker spaniels and Maltese dogs. Their long, flowing hair always exudes elegance. The hair of long-haired dogs is easy to knot. After knotting, it needs to be untied in time to avoid getting more tangled and even affect the dog's activities. Knots that cannot be untied should be cut with scissors. To care for long-haired dogs, you should comb frequently. When combing, you can spray the hair with coconut oil or a mixture of fish oil and water before combing, which can reduce pulling and static electricity, and increase the gloss of the hair.

Afghan hounds and Yorkshires have soft long hair, which is thin, brittle, and easy to curl, and will continue to grow.

Hairs that block the view are taken care of when trimming. The hair on the mouth, back and tail is combed in different directions and trimmed to create layers. Some pet owners also wear braids and multiple pigtails for their pet dogs, which look cute and cute, and can also reduce hair tangles.
