West Highland White Terrier - Westie Grooming
Westie Grooming - When your west highland white terrier becomes part of your family, it deserves the care love and support that is given to all members of your family.
As part of the package, this would include the grooming of your Westie. I am not talking as a show dog. The west highland terrier is an elegant looking and smart dog . It has such beautiful eyes, which is my favorite feature.
Its class is terrier and origin, as the name suggests, Scottish. The color is white. Did I say white? No definitely not today. However, when he or she has dug up part of your newly planted scrubs, you would like to strangle it.
Here are 5 success tips on how to groom your westie. I am not talking about turning out a show dog. If this is what you want, then go to a groomer. They can be found in every town and city from London to New York to Atlanta.
1. Most Westies enjoy being groomed. Begin brushing and examining your Westie when it is very young. Be positive, patient and gentle.
2. Grooming is a part of your Westie's general health care and hygiene routine. It includes brushing, combing, nail-clipping, ear and dental care, bathing and scissoring, stripping or clipping of hair coats. Regular grooming stimulates circulation, improves appearance and reduces shedding.
3. It also enables you to discover lumps, lesions, cuts, scratches or external parasites. Frequent haircuts are even more important for Westies than for humans. Long hair breeds dirt, bacteria and is more prone to matting.
4. Use the proper grooming tools for the job. Consult your breeder, veterinarian or other Westie professional for guidance.
5. A full grooming may include a bath. Water for a Westie's bath should be tepid. Be sure to use a non-skid mat in the tub.
