While we know the grown-out look may not be the prettiest, keep in mind that dogs don’t care how they look! Daily brushing will help decrease shedding and prevent matting, and regular bathing will help dogs stay clean and fresh smelling. Don't forget about dental health, too! Now is a great time to get in the habit of brushing your dog’s teeth every day or two, and daily dental treats can also be helpful. If you have specific concerns about grooming, your veterinarian may have some other suggestions for your pet.
