How To Groom Havanese

by Shopify API

Havanese are small and curious, and they have many admirers for their long, silky hair, expressive eyes, and cute size. They are nicknamed "velcro dogs" because they stick close to their owner’s side. They adore their humans and don’t handle being separated from their owners very well. So, make sure your floor has a constant companion. Regular pet grooming is necessary to keep them in perfect condition.

Havanese require routine bathing and grooming. They have a double coat that needs to be bathed every week. Try to brush your dog every day. To brush, lightly spray one area of your dog’s coat with a fine mist sprayer. After that’s done, start brushing. Be sure you get to the skin because mats form near the skin. For fur care, buy our Fur Care Glove; it’s suitable for sensitive animals. It frees the coat from dead hair and dust. Give the coat a silky shine. It also massages the skin and stimulates blood circulation.

  1. TRIMMING THE COAT

If you want to trim your pet’s coat yourself, you will need good scissors and an electric clipper. Use Trixie Face and Paw Scissors, which have rounded or blunt-tipped scissors, for working around the face.

When it comes to caring for your pet's eyes, one of the most common issues that pet owners have is tear staining. Though it’s not harmful in any way, owners don’t like its appearance. To reduce its appearance, use Tropiclean SPA Tear Stain Facial Cleanser. It’s mild; the concentrated formula has natural exfoliating properties, and it gently hydrates them.

To make the ear cleaning process easier, put some Tropiclean Dual Action Ear Cleaner for Pets on your pet's ear before you start your dog's bath. It safely dissolves wax and removes debris from your pet’s ear. It will soften the wax and make it easier to clean out with a Q-tip or a cotton ball.

There are plenty of tools out there for clipping nails. If you're a beginner or do it at home, use the Andis Nail Clipper. It’s sharpened and heat-treated for strength.

If you don’t want to use nail clippers, you could use the alternative of a nail grinder. It’s a faster and more efficient way to trim nails.
