4 Dog Breeds That Require the Most Grooming, Fairbanks North Star, Alaska

Pet grooming helps your pups to look their best while also protecting their skin and coats. Certain breeds require more grooming than others, and though the process is sometimes challenging, your canine’s health and happiness are worth it. Read on to learn more about dog breeds that require the most grooming and find out if your pup makes the list. 

4 Kinds of Dogs That Need Extra Grooming

1. Poodles

Although poodles have a reputation for being high-maintenance, they typically make warm and friendly companions. Their tightly-curled hair requires grooming every three to six weeks to prevent matting, tangling, bald patches, and skin infections.

2. Komondors

pet groomingKomondors are famous for their uncanny resemblance to the end of a mop. These loyal pups have long and thick hair that looks like dreadlocks. Though they don’t need brushing, they do require regular cleaning. Spritz and wipe each cord to remove dirt and debris. Additionally, separate the cords to prevent matting and discomfort. 

3. Cocker Spaniels

Cocker spaniels are gentle and affectionate pups that have long, luxurious coats that need grooming approximately every four weeks. Pet grooming for cocker spaniels improves their circulation and allows you to check for other problems, such as fleas, ticks, matting, and skin irritation. 

4. Maltese

The playful and loving Maltese has a gorgeous white coat that is long enough to reach the ground. To keep their fur silky and smooth, you’ll need to brush these pups two to three times per week and bathe them at least once per month.
