The Beagle dog breed isn’t high maintenance when it comes to their grooming needs. They have a short coat but that doesn’t mean you bath them once a year. They need to be groomed regularly just like any other animal. I have found that the more you groom your Beagle at home, they build a special trust and bond with you. When you touch their paws often when cleaning them and just friendly petting, this can make it easier on everyone when they go into get their nails trimmed if you don’t do that at home yourself.
During your Beagles bath is the perfect time to give them a physical inspection to make sure everything is okay with their body. Running your hands along their body, behind the ears, legs and stomach and also checking inside the ears is a good way to familiarize yourself with how things look so when something is wrong, you will be able to spot it right away. In that case, you would want to take them to the vet.
I choose to give my dogs their flea treatments after I give them their baths. This way they are clean and free of fleas and you don’t risk washing off the treatment you just gave them. When it comes to cleaning their eyes and ears you can purchase gentle cleansing solutions at your vet or from the local pet store. These things are just as important as anything else. Dirty eyes and ears can lead to infections and then your dog will be in pain and you will be spending a lot of money at the vet.
Just keep up on the regular grooming and everyone will be happy, clean and healthy!
