Generally, dog breeds with short muzzle hair do not need their belly hair shaved because they tend to have shorter and less belly hair, so a simple trim would be enough. Examples would include Huskies, Pomeranians, Chow Chows, Beagles, and Jack Russells. If you shave these dogs’ belly hair, their inner thighs will be itchy and irritated because their belly hair are usually rougher in texture.
When your dog’s paw hair gets too long, it gets slippery to walk, especially when it’s walking around indoors. This results in a higher risk of spraining or straining their ankles and joints. This is especially dangerous for dog breeds with a smaller bone structure such as Toy Poodles. Besides that, doggies that are overweight and senior in age are at a higher risk.
Why pet dogs’ nails grow faster than stray dogs’ nails?
You may wonder why stray dogs’ nails are never trimmed but it remained short, while our furkids’ nails grow so fast and need nails trimming often. This is because stray dogs stay outdoor and they walk on rough surface, which their nails are filed naturally every day. While our pet dogs normally stay in the house and seldom walk on rough surface.
