How to groom dogs ears?

It is essential that dogs are properly groomed as this will help minimise the risk of ear infection from excessive build up of wax, dirt and bacteria, etc.

Grooming Dogs Ears

For short haired dogs, you can trim any excess ear hair. This can be achieved by pulling your dog’s ear back over his head. By doing this you are protecting the inner ear canal. By trimming his outer hair, you can prevent trapped dirt, bacteria and moisture from entering his ear canal whilst also allowing you to take a closer look into his ear canal for any signs of infection. Another positive is that your dog will most certainly have a neater appearance when your done.

For long haired dogs, gently clasp individual hairs with your fingernails and pull. Alternatively use a specialised dog tweezers or a electric dog hair remover. It is important to only remove one hair at a time to minimise the discomfort for your dog.

With either type of dog mentioned above, when you are finished make sure to pet them and maybe give them a special treat!

Dog grooming is not for everyone and if you are unsure about any aspects, we recommend that you have your dog professionally groomed or speak to your Vet for any recommendations he/she might have.
