Dalmatian Dog Grooming Instruction - Brushing Hair and Coat
Most dog's hair and coats need some attention. The Dalmatian dog grooming instruction for caring for your dog's hair or coat is as follows:

  • The Dalmatian has a lovely white coat with either black or liver brown spots. This is the only breed that has a spotted coat. Grooming requirements are low as this breed has a short coat that sheds lightly throughout the year.
  • Begin brushing your Dalmatian from the top of its head, following the hair growth
  • Use a slicker brush and gently brush your dog or puppy all over
  • Take care around delicate areas
  • Brushing is very important as it helps to keep your dog or puppy's coat looking healthy and shiny. It also helps to remove any dead or loose hairs.

Dalmatian Dog Grooming Instruction - Bathing your Dog
Bathing your dog is very important for its health and hygiene. During bathing check your dog for lumps, bumps, parasites, fleas and skin irritations or allergies. Dalmatian Bathing instruction is as follows:

  • Wash your dog or puppy when they are dirty or smell!
  • Gather bathing equipment and place bathing tools and shampoo near to bathing area
  • Place a mat and towel next to bath
  • Check the water temperature of the bath - ensure that a minimal amount of water is used
  • Gradually place the dog in the bath - be aware that this may frighten your pet
  • Gently shampoo your pet - be careful of delicate areas such as eyes and ears
  • Rinse shampoo and towel dry. Then brush the hair

Dalmatian Dog 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 Dalmatian dog's nails can cause damage and pain. Written instruction is not enough as the risk of hurting your Dalmatian 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
