Grooming For Working Dogs

Sheep dog

It isn’t just show dog owners who will need the help of the best dog groomers Norwich has to offer – no, all kinds of dogs will need to have their coats regularly cut, cleaned and combed. This includes working dogs, and while there may not be one set of hard and fast rules for all working breeds, there are certainly some guidelines to follow.

Working dogs may not get dinner until they’ve done a day’s work, but their coats still need to be regularly tended to by their owners. Hunting breeds like cocker spaniels love to get muddy in their working life, so their coat needs to be groomed often to prevent it becoming too tangled and matted with mud and dirt. In between visits to the groomer, this can be done by waiting for the mud to dry before combing it out.

Working dogs may not need to be as precisely trimmed as a prize-winning poodle, but ensuring their coat is kept under control is still important for their own health and well-being, especially in warmer months where they are still being put to work.
