Great Danes shed but only do so during certain seasons.
For the most part of the year their short, smooth coat does not shed much, but given their massive size, the amount of hair loss can accumulate to a considerable amount.
The short, sleek and dense coat of the Great Dane is low-maintenance and needs grooming about every week to 10 days.
Weekly brushing with a medium-bristle brush, a rubber grooming mitt or tool, or a hound glove will help keep shedding to a minimum by removing the loose and dead hairs before they fall off.
As with all breeds, the Great Dane’s nails should be trimmed regularly. The overly long nails can cause the dog pain as well as problems walking and running.
But expect that grooming a Great Dane is a daunting task, particularly if they are not looking forward to it. For the times they are fussy and quite unmanageable, you can seek professional help at grooming salons.
Heading to a grooming salon will make it easier to achieve a clean and neat look for your Great Dane. You can try different regular services they offer which include dog bath, hand drying, ear cleaning, nail trimming and thorough brushing.
Premium services offered by salons include, nail filing, dental care, deshedding, degreasing, and nose and pad conditioning. The best thing about using premium service is that you can have it done at home instead of you bringing your dog to the salon.
