Grooming your Pomeranian is an essential part of your pet’s grooming routine. It will help make your dog look irresistible and like a little teddy bear if the haircut has been done by a professional. But that’s not the only reason to get your puppy’s hair cut.
Why is grooming necessary?
Regular grooming for your Pomeranian is not just about keeping your dog looking good and stylish. The benefits are far greater:
- Tangles are avoided;
- Hair loss is prevented;
- Reduces stress on the hair follicle;
- The coat feels thicker.
Spitzies should be accustomed to these procedures from the time the puppy is one month old. At first it’s enough to comb against the hair growth. We recommend soaking the Spitzies in water or conditioner first to avoid damaging the hair.
If you find that your pet has tangles, comb them out with a comb treated with a special product. This should be done before giving your dog a bath.
Grooming is especially important in the warmer months because it makes life easier for your dog: he won’t suffer from overheating or sunstroke. And in winter, it’s much easier to dry your dog after a walk and he won’t freeze to death.
There’s no need to go to a grooming salon when your puppy is young, you can do it yourself. Cutting a Pomeranian’s hair at home is not difficult, but it is better to have a professional do the very first cut to see how it is done correctly.
