grooming a white haired dog

Snow white-colored dog hair is absolutely beautiful.  Keeping your best friend’s coat this pure color may not be an easy grooming task.  Grooming a white haired dog to maintain his/her beautiful color takes dedication and a bit of know-how.

Brushing your Dog

Frequently brushing your dog is a great way to keep white fur looking its best.  This loosens up any dirt before it has a chance to stain. Experts agree that when you have a white dog, a quick daily brushing is one of the best defenses against grime.

Bathe Your Dog

Many white haired dog owners believe that the key to snow white fur is frequent bathing.  However, you do not want to bathe any dog too often, so be careful not to schedule a dog bath or grooming appointment more than once per month, unless necessary.  Frequent baths can lead to problems.  Then, about once per month, use a high quality shampoo.

Carefully take care of your white dog’s mouth and eye area

Be careful of bleaching techniques that can be harmful to sensitive skin.  Instead, have a few soft washcloths dedicated to this cause that you keep in a specific spot so you remember to gently clean the eyes in the morning, as well as the beard/muzzle area after meals or trips outside.
