Alaskan Malamute Grooming

Hi. I have a new two-year-old male Alaskan Malamute. I've owned this breed before, but I always took them to a groomer, which got a bit expensive. I'd therefore like to know all the brushes, combs, shampoos, conditioner, clippers and anything else I will need for grooming them myself at home. Thanks, looking forward to your reply. – J. J.

"Alaskan Malamutes need regular brushing at least three times a week, and every day during their moulting season, so it is important to invest in good quality brushes. You should first brush with a slicker, then follow with a metal undercoat rake.

The breed does not need regular bathing, only when the coat is soiled, really. Use Groomer Evening Primrose Oil Shampoo for gentle cleansing.

You should not need to clip or trim the coat too much, but you may like to invest in a pair of bull nosed scissors to give any shaggy areas a trim. Don’t forget to consider items for cleaning his ears and clipping his claws too if necessary.”
