Brushing Needs:

A Beagle's coat is short, dense, and weather-resistant, making it easy to maintain. While these pups don't require exhaustive grooming, a weekly brushing routine works wonders in keeping their coat healthy and minimizing shedding. Opt for a soft-bristle brush or a grooming mitt to gently remove loose hairs and distribute natural oils, ensuring their coat stays shiny and smooth. Since Beagles have a moderate shedding rate, this regular brushing helps manage any excess fur. Additionally, investing in a grooming rake or a de-shedding tool can be beneficial during seasonal shedding periods.

Teeth Brushing:

When it comes to dental care, beagles benefit from regular teeth brushing 2-3 times a week. Start by introducing your pup to the pet-friendly toothbrush gradually, allowing them to sniff and taste the dog toothpaste to get comfortable. Opt for a dog-specific toothbrush with soft bristles to protect their gums, paired with enzymatic toothpaste designed for dogs. Creating a positive association by rewarding them after brushing helps make the experience enjoyable for both you and your furry friend.

Nail trimming should ideally be done every 2-4 weeks to prevent discomfort and avoid overgrowth. In the world of dog grooming care, knowing how to safely trim your dog’s nails is extremely important. Using guillotine-style clippers or a grinder specifically designed for dogs helps make the process smoother. Introduce the clippers slowly, associating them with positive experiences like treats, to ease any anxiety your beagle might have. Be sure to use proper lighting and be extra cautious to avoid cutting into the quick (the sensitive inner part of the nail) for a pain-free trimming session.

Squishface Wrinkle Wipes:

Squishface Wrinkle Wipes offer a convenient solution for in-between baths, especially for beagles prone to skin allergies. Infused with the magical powers of chlorhexidine and ketoconazole, these wipes effectively cleanse and soothe the skin, reducing the risk of infections.
