Tyler’s beauty routine

Hey bloggers! Today I will be introducing someone very special to me: Tyler.  He is my dog and I have had him for about two years.

He is three years old (which is 32 in human years!) but I adopted him two years ago when I helped him escape an abusive life style. Indeed his owners weren’t capable of looking after him as they had five dogs and didn’t walk them ever! From this experience I honestly can say that if you want a dog I think that the most beautiful thing you can do is adopt a dog to help them get back to a normal life.

So anyway back to the subject matter.  I shall be presenting to you Tyler’s beauty routine. As he is a bichon frisé he requires a lot of maintenance.  According to some websites bichons need to be groomed at least every 6 weeks and of course this can be costly so if you are thinking of getting one do bear this in mind.

But that is not all of it! Indeed between the grooming sessions you will need to take care of your bichon as its hair can get knotty very easily.  What I do is try to brush him every two days if not every day!

The look:

Here are the steps to Tyler’s beauty routine:

1.De-tangling brush

I use this to start off with as it just helps to get out a few knots. I wouldn’t rely on this entirely as there will be deeper knots.

2.Metal comb
This is the comb to use to get to the proper knots. Now this will not be pleasant for the dog so try to hold the hair you are combing whilst you run the comb through it so that is less painful for him/her.

3.Fluffing up brush

This brush looks pretty weird but it does a great job at fluffing up you dog to make him/ her look beautiful. Use this brush all in one direction to get the best results.

4.Eye cleaning

Bichons usually get tear stains which are brown and smelly. It is crucial to remove these every day or the stain could get harder to remove. Use special wipes specifically for eye tears
