 Healthy Skin = Healthy Hair How to overcome the problem of dog hair we have a variety of products to help you to keep your dog in top condition to maintain and improve a dull black coat to a mega shine not all dogs like the bath and Hydrobaths can be expensive I came across this portable dog wash  

 

Bathing is the first and foremost to make grooming easier I use and recommend The Bissel Portable dog wash

This portable all-in-one system can be used in any room of the house anytime, with a minimal mess — eliminating the inevitable clean-up that comes along with washing a four-legged family member.

Sound/noise emitted is similar to a vacuum. For best results, your dog should not be afraid of the sound of a vacuum. Training steps are provided in the user guide materials to acclimate noise-sensitive and anxious dogs.

Specially designed nozzles get beneath the fur and down to the skin to allow water and shampoo to wash the skin clean, while a soft suction pulls dirt and water into a separate dirty water tank.

Cleans an 80lb.+ dog with any length of fur or hair with less than 48 oz. of water vs traditional bathing in a tub which can use up to 19 gallons of water.

System includes the BARKBATH bathing tool, Sound Dampening Mat, Microfiber Towel (for cleaning faces and paws), one 16oz. bottle of BISSELL Clean & Fresh No-Rinse Dog Shampoo and a Storage Bag. our article Dog how to maintain a dull back coat to a mega shine coat has more on this subject

We cannot stop the malting process so we must go with the natural fall and regrowth within seasons, the single coat dogs like any other breed come into malting in the change of the seasons regular bathing and brushing with exercise swimming will help your dog’s hair to remain in good condition, If your dog is losing hair a lot factors like stress heat poor diet lack of vitamins here are some Top Vitamins Proteins  vitamins are important in diet.

The hair or coat will show how healthy your dog is a shining coat means good health the loosing of the hair would be an average fall of 45% which seems a lot,

considering a human will lose 50 to 100 hairs a day and a dog is 100 to 200 hairs a day on average some days it looks like more how can we stop them shedding so much hair here are some factors to consider

The temperature of the day bathing water temperature bedding, grooming routine, diet, health, fleas and parasites, stress, exercise,

keeping your dog cool in hot weather is not going to make much difference or living inside a cooling orthopedic bed with the air conditioner on to slow down hair loss, might make a difference.

Regular brushing redistributes your dogs natural skin oils using the right tools for the job

Hair is smooth in texture and longer and finer  It can be straight,wavy,or Curly.

Curly hair tends to get tangled and trapping (dander)  see Article The best Dog grooming Scissors for home or professional which often triggers allergies. Breeds with hair only have one single layer, known as the drop coats, while breeds with fur have two layers known as a double coat, or a topcoat and an undercoat.

Fur is shorter in length and is denser or feels thicker  with more follicles per inch of the skin.

Fur also goes through a faster growth cycle, and so sheds more during the changes in season or hot and cold conditions which in turn, leads to a greater spread of dander from the coat What is Dander.

when they shed the under coat falls out and needs stimulation through grooming to loosen the underlying hair thinning the coat by removing the lose hair will help redistribute the natural oils in the hair follicles and skin

Hair conditioners

Food and Diet 

A shiny coat generally means healthy dog stomach upsets from preservative foods the hair texture feels dry and off colour lack of iron can cause discoloration the cooper look green leafy vegetables herbivore meats liver kidney’s heart known as offal can be served cooked only.

Chicken has hormones that some dogs have reactions to wheat based dog food can cause dryness hair loss and skin conditions
Add a little oil or an omega supplement to dry foods and plenty of Alkaline water for best results can foods are high in preservatives.

Choose the best brands that have crude oil protein and essential fats in moderation healthy hair is shinier softer and feels nice after washing it’s also easier to groom. for water saving and easy to wash at home I use this product 

Portable easy to set up and use

 

 

Clipping the double coat hair off your Dog it is not recommended as the fine undercoat naturally sheds the guard hair is protection and a thermometer to gauge temperature the hair is a covering from weather waterproofing from rain the underlay is the insulation to protect the body from the cold water and sun. once you clip this coat you will need to continue 

Collie Double Coat

 

My Dogs hair makes him/her to hot

If your dog has unusual panting and their eyes are enlarged I recommend you see your vet your dog may have an infection or inflammation the body may feel warmer than usual.

The normal body temperature for dogs is between 101 and 102.5 F, compared to 97.6 to 99.6 F for humans. This means your dog may feel feverish to you, even when their temperature can be completely normal. The word “fever” is typically used to describe elevated body temperature
