Other than training your mastiff daily, it’s also key to groom it from time to time. Mastiffs are a short breed of dogs and they shed their coat even in winter. Mastiff grooming is inclusive of; cleaning your dog’s eyes, ears, coat brushing, claw clipping and bathing it once in a while.
Well, this should not be a daily activity but ear cleaning and coat brushing should be a daily activity. Just make it a routine so that the mastiff will get used to it.
You may be wondering why do all this, this is of protection to you and the dog. Ear and eye cleaning prevent mites and infections from attacking the mastiff. Claw clipping prevents claw overgrowth which can hinder the dog from walking or even injure you while playing.
Brushing the coat prevent dust and dandruff from overstaying. Note that the mastiff should not be bath daily like a human, this can remove the protective fat.
Whether it’s an English or dogue de Bordeaux mastiff breed, grooming is necessary.
