Summer Grooming Tips: Keep Your Pup Cool and Comfy

Summer Grooming Tips: Keep Your Pup Cool and Comfy

Summer is here, and it's time to make sure our furry friends stay cool, comfortable, and looking fabulous. The sun is shining, the days are longer, and our pups are ready for some outdoor fun. But with the heat comes a whole new set of grooming challenges. Don’t worry, though—Floof by Brodie has got you covered! Here are some tail-waggingly good summer grooming tips to help your dog beat the heat and stay as happy as a clam.

  1. Shed the Shed

Summer means shedding season for many dogs. Regular brushing is essential to remove loose fur and prevent matting. Use the Brodie brush to gently remove excess hair and keep your dog’s coat light and airy. Not only will this help them stay cooler, but it will also reduce the amount of fur you find on your furniture!

  1. Cool Baths for Hot Days

Bathing your dog more frequently in the summer can help them stay cool and clean. Opt for a refreshing bath with Floof by Brodie's Shampoo & Conditioner, designed to cleanse and invigorate your dog’s skin and coat. Make sure to use lukewarm water, as water that's too cold or too hot can be uncomfortable for your pup. After the bath, a good toweling off and a little time to air dry in the shade will have them feeling fresh and fabulous.

  1. Paw Care is a Must

Hot pavement and rough surfaces can be tough on your dog's paws. Regularly check and clean their paws to remove any dirt or debris. Trim the fur between their paw pads to prevent matting and overheating.

  1. Keep Ears Clean and Dry

Summer fun often includes swimming, but water in the ears can lead to infections. After a swim, gently dry your dog’s ears with a soft towel. Regular ear checks and cleaning can prevent pesky infections and keep your pup’s ears happy.

  1. Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate

While this isn’t strictly grooming, hydration is key to keeping your dog healthy in the summer heat. Make sure your dog always has access to fresh, cool water. A hydrated dog is a happy dog, and a happy dog makes for a smoother grooming session.

  1. Trim Smart, Not Short

A summer trim can help your dog stay cool, but avoid shaving their coat completely. A dog’s fur provides protection against the sun and helps regulate their body temperature. Instead, opt for a lighter trim to remove excess fur while keeping enough to protect their skin.

With these summer grooming tips, your pup will be ready to enjoy all the sunny adventures that the season has to offer. From beach trips to park picnics, keeping your dog cool, comfortable, and well-groomed ensures they can have the best summer ever. Grab your Floof by Brodie grooming products and make this summer a breeze for your furry friend.

 

Stay cool, stay floofy, and have a paw-some summer!
