Siberian Husky Grooming

Jun 6, 2008
When grooming your Siberian Husky you need to use specific techniques because of their double-coat. Through the woolly undercoat common to the Siberian Husky there is a longer, harsher outer coat. This coat provides the Siberian Husky dog with insulation from the cold and heat.

At least once a year the male Siberian Husky will shed their coat while the female Siberian Husky will shed her coat about two times a year. The shedding will become worse if there is high humidity or excessive heat. The shedding process usually takes between three to six weeks and then within the following three to four months the new coat will start growing.

During the shedding period it is important to groom your Siberian Husky daily and between those periods you should do regular brushing in order to take care of any excess loose hairs. You can avoid the continuous shedding that many other breeds have with a weekly grooming pattern.

Removing the dead hairs that cling to the coat is the main goal when grooming your Siberian Husky. When you groom your Siberian Husky you are helping to clean both the dog's skin and the shafts of the living hair. A wide-toothed comb and a bristle brush are the two main tools you use when grooming your Siberian Husky.

When grooming your Siberian Husky you also want to give special attention to bathing and nail trimming. Bathing can be a difficult task all by itself. However, the good news is that the Siberian Husky only requires bathing about twice a year under normal conditions.

Bathing should be done in the spring and fall in order to coincide with the molting of the coat. The Siberian Husky has a coat that remains clean year-round and usually doesn't take on the dog odor. When it comes to bathing your Siberian Husky you want to use a very mild shampoo that is specifically formulated for dogs. If you use a shampoo designed for humans it will be too harsh and results in a dry coat for your dog.

Since the Siberian Husky is an active dog they often get enough exposure to pavement that you don't have to trim the nails often. However, you still want to regularly inspect their nails to make sure they don't need trimming.

As a result of their activity level the Siberian Husky typically gets enough exposure to pavement that you don't have to trim their nails often. Although it is still important to inspect the nails regularly to make sure they don't need trimming. If nails are not kept properly trimmed the nails will become overgrown, which can affect the placement of the dog's feet and as a result their gait.
