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

  • The Tibetan Mastiff has a full double coat. The hair is thick and coarse. On a normal basis this breed of puppy and dog will require regular, weekly bathing. However, this breed sheds its coat once per year and during this time, the coat should be groomed on a daily basis to reduce the amount of dead, loose hairs. The shedding period occurs when the weather starts to get warmer and it lasts for approximately one month.

  • Brush through the coat with a firm bristle brush, follow the direction of hair growth
  • To combat knots and tangles try using either a wire pin brush or a slicker brush to carefully tease the knots out

Tibetan Mastiff 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. Tibetan Mastiff 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

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