Three Autumn Dog Grooming Tips

Fall Shedding

Dogs, like their human countertops, change their seasonal wardrobe, so to speak. Dogs go through seasonal cycles of shedding so their coat isn’t too think for summer and too thin for winter. Dog shed their thinner summer coats to make room for a heavy, warmer coat to protect them during the colder months. It’s important to brush them regularly while keeping their new coat clean.

Autumn Allergies

Our furry friends can suffer from similar fall allergies that affect us humans, causing dry skin, itchy, watery eyes, and frequent sneezing. If you notice your dog scratching a lot more, it may be that their skin is dry and itchy due to the changing temperatures. Excessive scratching can cause sores and welts to develop, so keeping their skin and coat conditioned can help combat this allergic response. Talk to your local groomers about deep conditioning treatments for your dog.

Maintain a Flea and Tick Regimen

Fleas and ticks are two of the biggest concerns for pet parents, and these pests remain active well into the fall here in Northern Colorado. In fact, adult ticks are highly active in the fall. Be sure to thoroughly check your dog for ticks after spending time outdoors. Additionally, keep up with your flea and tick prevention routine to safeguard your dog from these pests during fall.
