Your shaggy dog needs a lot more attention, a lot more lather in his shampoo, and more time dedicated to his baths. Your long-haired shaggy dog is going to need a little care before he hops into the bath. You'll need to make sure you've brushed out any mats, if not cut out or combed out, before getting his fur wet. Shaggy dogs also need to be soaked in order for the shampoo to take and work in his fluff. Rinsing your dog once he's done with his bath is going to take a little longer as well because of his shag. You may also want to consider a nice deep coat conditioning for your shaggy dog when you're done with his bath. If you are lucky enough to have a beautiful shaggy dog, just know it's worth all the extra effort and time to give him the right care and make him beautiful.
Because it takes a little more time to bathe a beautiful shaggy dog than it does a short-haired dog, your dog may be a little apprehensive about being in the water for so long. If there is any apprehension, do as much as you can before introducing your dog to the water. Brush him out make him fluffy and tangle-free before you get him wet.
Short-haired dogs around the world have fur envy from these beautiful shaggy dogs. If you happen to have a long-haired dog or the Shaggy DA in your home, take the extra time he needs for a special grooming and a routine bath to keep him top dog.
