Most dog's hair and coats need some attention. The Belgian Sheepdog dog grooming instruction for caring for your dog's hair or coat is as follows:

  • This breed has long hair that tangles fairly easily so it is important to brush the coat through thoroughly at least once per week in order to maintain health and appearance
  • Try using a spray in condition (speak to your pet store for available options)
  • This will help when brushing through mats and tangles
  • Begin at the head of the puppy or dog and gently comb through the hair
  • Use a firm bristle brush and always comb in the direction of the hair growth

Belgian SheepDog Grooming Instruction - Trimming Nails
Some dogs do not need their nails trimmed as they are kept short by general activities. However, should your dog's nails become long then they should be trimmed. It is important to know exactly what you are doing, as cutting too deep into your Belgian SheepDog's nails can cause damage and pain. Written instruction is not enough as the risk of hurting your Belgian Sheepdog is too high.

  • Your vet can help initially by demonstrating how to trim your dog's nails and supervise your first attempt
  • Spend some time touching your dog's paws and gently squeezing the area around the nails in order to familiarize them with this sensation
  • Seek advice from your vet about the most appropriate nail clippers for your pet
