Believe it or not but dogs actually need their coats. The fur or hair belonging to all mammals is composed of protein keratin which is a family of fibrous structural proteins. It is the key structural material making up hair nails and the outer layer of skin among Dogs, Cats, Birds and many other types of mammals. Keratin also protects epithelial, or cells on the surface of a body, from damage or stress. The other ingredient in dog fur is dead skin cells. A human hair follicle has one hair growing out of it however dogs follicles have multiple hairs growing out of one follicle to assist with regulation of body temperature. They need their coats for protection from the outside weather no matter if it is hot or cold. Coats need to be taken care of. Most dogs have three types of fur: an undercoat, guard hair, and whiskers. The undercoat is the type of fur that grows many hairs from one follicle. This layer is there defense against cold weather helps to keep the dog warm. The next part of a dog’s fur is made up of the guard hairs. These hairs protect the skin from injury and is also the layer that regulates the temperature for a dog to help them to remain cool or warm. Different breeds of dogs have different variations or rations of the types of coats or just one type. The last type of fur or hair that makes up a dogs coat is the whiskers. These are hairs that grow from deeply rooted follicles and are used for sensory purposes. The color of a dog’s coat comes from cells in the animal’s skin that create melanin. The color depends on the dog’s genetic background. There are so many different variations that genetics control like the color, multiple colors or patterns, and the fur texture and type. No matter what type of fur a dog has, it is very important to them. Like we said a dog’s coat provides insulation both from hot and cold. It protects them from the different temperatures and environment. Regardless of what a dog’s coat looks like it is an excellent reference of your dog’s overall general health. Even when a dog has a coat that can be shaved without much damage it is actually harmful for them and causes them to easily sunburn in the summer. Dogs with long hair need to get cuts regularly. If not, the dog will be carrying around tons of excessive coats which weighs down the dog, and is very uncomfortable. No matter what type of dog you have, it is very important that you can take care of their coats because they are very important to your animal’s comfort and well being. No matter what type of coat your dog has, you can trust that we will have your dog’s coat properly maintained and your beloved fur baby will be absolutely thrilled and relieved about the way its fur will feel after our pet grooming service.
