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

  • The English Setter has a medium length smooth, flat coat that can matt and tangle quite easily. Therefore, grooming once or twice per week is very important in order to remove the tangles and to keep your dog or puppy's coat looking healthy & radiant
  • Spend a good 20 to 30 minutes thoroughly grooming you dog or puppy's coat
  • Use a pin brush or a slicker brush and gently work through tangles
  • Grooming will help to reduce shedding as it removes loose or dead hairs
  • When brush, begin at the dog's head and follow the direction of hair growth
  • Be careful when brushing or combing around delicate areas

English Setter 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. English Setter 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

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