Our Deshedding Service benefits short-coated and smooth-coated breeds such as Bassett Hounds, Beagles, Boston Terriers, Boxers, Bulldogs, Bull Terriers, Dalmatians, Doberman Pinschers, Foxhounds, French Bulldogs, Great Danes, Greyhounds, Labrador Retrievers, Pointers, Mastiffs, Pugs, Rhodesian Ridgebacks, Rottweilers, Smooth Coated Chihuahuas and Dachshunds, Weimaraners and similar fine-coated dogs by removing loose shedding coat. Contrary to popular belief, there is no magic shampoo, conditioner or deshedding furminating tool to accomplish this task. There is however, a proper deshedding technique and we are adept at removing loose coat with a three-step process that begins before the bath, during the bath and afterwards during the drying process. Our Deshedding Service also includes cleaning ears, trimming nails and gland expression if desired.
Our Deshedding Service also benefits combination-coated, double-coated and heavy-coated breeds such as Akitas, Alaskan Malamutes, American Eskimos, Border Collies, Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, Corgis, Chows, Collies, German Shepherds, Golden Retrievers, Keeshonds, Newfoundlands, Papillions, Pomeranians, Shetland Sheepdogs, Siberian Huskies, Samoyeds and similar dense-coated breeds by removing the loose trapped skin dander and undercoat on the dog. Removing undercoat is important on dense-coated breeds in our humid climate because if it remains trapped in a dog's coat it can contribute to the formation of hot spots and skin infections. Usually the double-coated breeds will also be trimmed after deshedding on their paws, furnishings, tail and sometimes ears as part of our grooming service.
