Attention hair! Change in coat
How often does the dog changes his coat?
Twice a year, the dog changes its summer coat into winter coat and vice versa. These phases in spring and autumn stand for much combing, brushing and vacuuming what means a lot of work for the dog owner. Some dogs throw the hair literally by themselves!
Why should dogs carry dead fur with them?
Throughout the year, the dog’s fur grows in a 6 to 8 week cycle. When the genetic length is reached, the hair falls out. Exceptions are trim-breeds; this fur has to be trimmed (removed). Otherwise the new hair cannot grow. A job for the dog groomer. All other dogs can use Cofix – but more on that later.
How is the dog’s fur structured?
Each dog fur consists of the topcoat and the undercoat. Compared to us humans the fur grows from a follicle (dermis). An outer coat encloses 6-12 hairs of the undercoat. The outer coat protects against injuries and external influences. The undercoat isolates heat and cold. Therefore it should not be removed completely! So good care must be thoroughly and gentle at the same time.
