Homemade Samoyed Care
Samoyeds are unpretentious dogs. However Samoyed care has features to consider.
An important part of caring for a Samoyed is keeping your dog in good shape. Representatives of the breed will feel best of all in country houses (not on a chain!) However, if you live in an apartment, two long walks a day are enough for Samoyeds to throw out an excess of energy. Regular trips to the city or more active walks in the park on weekends will help to keep the dog in good shape. Walking a Samoyed is best on a long leash.
Additional care for the Samoyed requires only wool. It needs to be combed out regularly (preferably daily). Armpits are especially carefully processed, the area behind the ears and under the lower jaw - most often, the witches are formed there.
Samoyed wool has an enviable ability to clean itself. Therefore, they do not need frequent bathing - on the contrary, water procedures using detergents can wash off the water-repellent “lubricant” from the wool. In addition, frequent washing can cause skin diseases and colds.
Show dogs are washed, of course, quite often (once a week), however, if your pet does not go to exhibitions, you should not arrange bathing days more often 1 - 2 times a year. It is better to choose a super-cleansing and whitening shampoo for a white dog. The wool is washed well at first, then shampoo is used twice, after which - conditioner, cream and mask.Rinse the coat thoroughly at the end.
They wipe the Samoyed with a towel, and then dry it with a hairdryer, combing the hair in parallel.
Samoyed molts 1–2 times a year (bitches more often); molting lasts 2–3 weeks. The rest of the time the wool does not fly around the house.
A big plus in caring for a Samoyed is the absence of a specific smell.
