All dogs shed fur, and some more than others — which is something you already know, if you share your home with a medium-coated or long-coated dog. But with de-shed treatment at DogDayz, you may spend a lot less time cleaning fur off of the family room sofa.
How it works
Our professional groomers reduce dog shedding, using special tools and cleaners that gently remove loose hairs before they fall out.
- First, they start by thoroughly washing your pet with de-shed shampoo and conditioner, and depending on the dog’s coat, they may also gently rake out loose fur while it’s still wet.
- Further brushing and combing to remove more loose hairs may be necessary, once the coat is blown dry.
As seasonal temperatures increase, monthly or bi-weekly de-shed treatments can significantly reduce the presence of dog hair in your home. And when dogs shed fur, they also shed dander, which is an irritant for most people with pet allergies. Reducing shedding minimizes the presence of dog dander, creating a healthier home environment.
Coat care for pets
Brush your pet regularly to control dog shedding at home. In colder weather, regular brushing helps to evenly distribute the coat’s natural oils and prevent dry skin. If your pet has visible dandruff, use a fine-tooth comb to clean the brush after each long stroke, so dandruff from the brush doesn’t get back into your dog’s coat.
Some dogs will tolerate brushing for only a short amount of time — not nearly long enough to remove all loose hair. But at DogDayz, our groomers are known for helping nervous or irritable pups warm-up to the idea of grooming.
About double-coated dogs
Dogs with double coats, such as the Golden Retriever and German Shepherd, usually shed their undercoats twice per year (groomers call this “coat blow”). Coat blow begins with a tuft or two of undercoat falling out, and a dog may shed its entire undercoat in a matter of days. Removing all that loose fur is essential for preventing hair mats.
When a double-coated dog begins its major biannual shedding, de-shed treatment at DogDayz can quickly remove all that excess fur that would normally be shed over several days.
Comfortable dog, comfortable home
Shedding can make dogs feel itchy, so removing loose hair makes them more comfortable. Dog owners tend to be more comfortable, too, when they spend less time vacuuming and sweeping, and can breathe easier due to less pet dander in the home.
