Siberian Husky Dog Breed Grooming
Huskies are quite high maintenance on the grooming front, thanks to their thick, heavy and dense double coats. With this said, because their coat tends not to mat like other breeds, brushing a dog twice a week will keep things tidy and remove any shed and loose hair. As with many other breeds, they tend to shed more during the Spring and then again in the Autumn when more frequent brushing would be necessary to keep on top of things. They are known to “blow” their coats during the moulting seasons which means they can leave a ton of fur around the house.
It’s also important to check a dog’s ears and to clean them when necessary. If too much wax is allowed to build up in a dog’s ears, it can lead to a painful infection which can be hard to clear up. In short, prevention is often easier than cure when it comes to ear infections.
When it comes to bathing a Siberian Husky, this is best done only when necessary with many owners leaving the task up to a professional groomer who has all the equipment needed to ensure a dog’s coat is thoroughly dried off after they have been bathed which is important as it reduces the chance of a skin infection flaring up.

- A slicker brush
