Illustrated Guide to Australian Shepherd Grooming
Check out this great illustrated guide to grooming your aussie. It is a bit overkill unless you are showing your aussie. Overall, I find aussies simply need a good brushing here and there to keep their coat mat free and shedded out. Feeding a great dog food like TLC Whole Life Dog Food, goes a LONG way to aid in a healthy shiny and easy to manage hair coat. Generally speaking, the more grain (such as soy, wheat, and corn) you have in a dog food the worse off it is not only for your dog's hair coat, but also in regards to their general health. Stay tuned for our next post on choosing a suitable dog food for your aussie.
Be sure to go slow and make grooming a positive experience for your dog or puppy so you will both enjoy the process. Happy Grooming!
