COAT & GROOM TIPS

Regular brushing and combing once a week is essential in order to manage the double coat of Canaan Dogs. Remove the wooly hair shed from the dense undercoat, and not only the outer coarse guard coat which protects the undercoat. The coat should lay flat. Depending upon climatic conditions, this breed may shed year round.

Using modern high velocity dryers to blow off excess water after the bath saves a tremendous amount of drying time. Some groomers prefer to use a pin brush instead of slicker brush for the hand fluff dry process. You can expect even more loose hair to remove after the bath, and finish with a final comb out.

Don't forget to scissor the hair under the feet even with the pads, and trim any other stray hairs around the feet.

Thinning shears can be used to remove excessive hair that may block the anus area and collect dirt.

MORE GROOMING TIPS FOR PROFESSIONALS

Shedding blades can be very helpful during the Canaan Dog shedding season, but you should be trained in the proper use of this tool before attempting its use. Metal rakes are also useful to remove matted undercoat usually in the neck, chest and thigh areas.

These books contain little or no breed specific grooming information. They do provide very good to excellent general breed information. Of course, having pictures of the breed is a great help when grooming the breed compared to having nothing else.
