Re: [carienna] Grooming of M Schnauzer [In reply to] Can't Post

Hi there!
Apologies for the late reply. Just came back to Malaysia!
It's great that you have picked up some grooming skills to maintain your MS looking their best!
MS coat properties are genetically based. Nothing much we can do about it I'm afraid. What MS breeders go for is to combine the best qualites of both, ie. dense coat with naturally wire hair. Peppa seems to be from European stock..they have a natural wiry coat but not too much leggings. Having said that, I found one supplement that does promote hair growth to a certain extent..
As for the grooming of the MS leg, the ideal is to have a barber pole effect or column like. There's some techiques involved but a bit lengthy to go into detail here. Basically you need to comb out the leggings, bath them, and partly blow dry the leggings, apply cholestral while still damp, blow dry some more, apply chalk powder, blow dry again..etc..whew! lots of work but the effect is well worth it!
Hope this helps.

Hey,

Thanks for the replyWink Where have you been to?

Hmm, what was the supplement that you found, saying to promote the hair growth?

Peppa's wiry coat is on her body, while her leggings, hehe... i think only 1/5 of Wesley's. Sigh. Some of my friend are not much familiar with dogs. So when I show them Wesley and tell them he's a MS, they'll ask me again what breed is peppa, like they really have a huge difference Frown

So much work to do those leggings... have you tried it before? it sound so much like cooking! hahahaa! :P

Thanks a lot anyway.

Hoping to mate Peppa and Wesley ;) *grins*

hi arthur,

thanks for the advice. now it seems that my MS's fur it's like very hard to grow long. usually the body and the leg part need to keep it long but until now it's still that short. well, she got skin problem and recently i took her for grooming to get the shape of it so next time i can groom myself. Cool do you think that my MS's fur can grow long? i did pluck her hair in the ears. now looks cleaner than before. Smile

Re: [arthur] Grooming of M Schnauzer [In reply to] Can't Post

Hi Arthur

v impressed with yours sharing your MS experience in this forum. your comments have been a great insight! Wink

I just got an MS myself. It's nearly a month since, and yup, he's lots of fun! Cool U mentioned something about Euka**** food having some slight colouring effect on your MS. Am feeding my MS that brand of dog food now, and am a bit worried about that effect. Would prefer for his natural colours to come thru. Care to share what brand of dog food u r using for your MS?

The reason i am using EUka**** is cos i believe it's good for physical/stature growth (but not really sure on its effect on teh coat, until now). I got my MS from a pet shop and he looks a bit under-size. So am tryting to get him to catch up on growth.

Also my MS has got some dandruff problem. Shopkeeper says it's natural (will disappear later) and vet says it's fungus infection. In anycase, have fed him coat oil supplements and now it's a bit better (not so much dandruff anymore). Was just wondering if there's anything I shoud do to make sure that that dandruff problem stays away?

Any help will be appreciated! WinkWinkWink

hi the dogghouse

THanks for your reply... Yup am feeding him some skin supplements. brought him to the vet also. have a case of dermatitis, so is on medication now. he's a bit better, but not 100% dandruff-free. must have gotten it from the pet shop i bought him from. apart from that, he is a-OK!

Re: [thedogghouse] Grooming of M Schnauzer [In reply to] Can't Post

hi thedogghouse

not sure waht medication it is as i bought it from the vet, not from teh counter. first vet i went to says it was fungus infection to which he prescribed anti-fungal shampoo. I used taht shampoo weekly, but not much change. later i switched to another vet, and he's put my MS on liquid medication. its yellowish in colour and my MS likes it v much.

my MS is still a puppy so the coat is not so thick. i am thinking that the coat will get thicker and coarser as he grows older. ya.. am looking forward to those schnauzer-type coat one day.

how old is your MS btw?

Re: [chnyuppie] Grooming of M Schnauzer [In reply to] Can't Post

hi,

hmm....since the vet gave the medication to your MS, i think your MS skin condition really bad. my vet said if shampoo can cure her skin, then no need to give those extra medication. it's not necessary. if the shampoo can't do anything about it, then might be take another alternative way to cure it.

how old is your MS? i'm not sure whether can get thick coat or not cos i saw from the petshop, although they are 2 months old, their coat are thick. so i think my MS's coat won't grow thick already. Unsure

my MS now is 5 months old. the picture in my avatar is 4 months old. after i groomed her. not thick fur right?

anyone watched Alias last nite? (i missed it!) [In reply to] Can't Post

hi there the dogghouse

My MS is 3 months old.

As for the skin problem, i don't think it was that bad. It's funny how the two vets we went to both gave different conclusions.

Had a look at your avatar. Quite difficult to tell whether or not the fur/hair is thick. Sorry, cos I have owned an MS for a far lesser time than you. Do you practice hand strip?

Anyway wat dog food brand do you feed your MS? I have been thiking of switching.

Hi Kenken

Well, it just appears like dandruff. Tiny white flakes in its coat. But it's not so bad now. Nearly 98% dandruff-free.

Why?

anyone watched Buffy last nite? (it was the final episode of the SERIES) [In reply to] Can't Post

Hi kenken

THanks for your reply. Coudl i just ask, in your MS's case, did it just disappear by itself? At what age?

My MS is nearly cured. Maybe I shouldnt have fed him any antibiotics. Would have preferred for him to built up his own immune system! (so that he can be a "stronger" dog)

For my case by 4months old both of my puppy should be okey, i suspect all this might due to lack of nutritions from the Breeder or pet shop that don't want the puppies to grow so fast because the moment i feed my furkids proper diet i can see they are more healthy and the skins improve alot.

Which groomer do you use?

chnyuppie,

I send them every three months.

Mine also the same misbehave sometimes but once the fur kids get use to it they will know what is going on.

I sent them to Arthurís home grooming, where you send yours?

Hey Y@ Smile

U r very lucky to adopt a MS from SPCA & its still considered a young... he looks wonderful too Wink

Ever consider DIY?... I do my own grooming & thru experience, dare say grooming a MS is not too difficult... in the beginning it may be a lil' challenging but u'll get the hang of it after sometime... all u need is a reliable pet clipper, scissors & some patience... its highly recommanded unless u plan to show ur furkid or really dun like the mess...

Re: [elizatye] Grooming of M Schnauzer [In reply to] Can't Post

I think all M Schnauzer shld learn to groom them as it will help to bond the relationship with the dog. I own a 21/2 yrs old MS. They are very lovable, attached and observant dog. He like to be close to his owners and loves to sleep with me in bed at night.

I used to send him for grooming every 2 months. I started buying hair cutting shears and slowly copied the style of grooming slowly. As I learn I became more confident and am now grooming him myself.

The most important about grooming MS is their moustache and their eyebrows which is their distinctive trade mark and makes it outstanding.A well taken care MS can be very obedient, house trained, playful and loves soft toys.

Grooming an MS takes a lot of patience and practice but you will enjoy every minute of it once you become adept at it. Initially send him to a professional groomer and observe how they cut the hair. Then get a set of hair cutting trimmer (start with those that you can get these from supermarket). Don't get the cheapest type as these are useless and go not cut well. After you have learn how to hanlde the trimmer properly, then buy a good set which cost a couple of hundreds. Always groom your MS first and after that give him a good bath and dry with a towel following the contour of cut to avoid entangling their hair.After blow dry, apply powder and comb down.

Enjoy yourself.

Re: [low_richard] Grooming of M Schnauzer [In reply to] Can't Post

Thanks. Totally agree with you, that's why I learned to groom Yippi myself.. Yaya, at first we will feel that not easy to groom a MS, but after a few times practise, you will use to it and will find that it is really fun.. really thanks for the "shi fu" here that guided me on the MS grooming Smile ...

One thing is, now I didn;t groom Yippi on grooming table, I feel that is pity for him to stand for 2-3 hours for grooming (my skill not so good, everytime has to spend a few hours to complete the grooming Unsure), he look really tired after grooming.. I let him lying on a big pellow (cover with a layer of plastic or cloth) and doing the grooming.. is more easy to handle and the result is not so bad Wink..

Re: [elizatye] Grooming of M Schnauzer [In reply to] Can't Post

Hi Eliza,
It's a pleasure assisting other MS owners who need help with them. Don't call me "sifu" as I learn thru trial and error.
It is a pleasure keeping an MS as they are so active and lovable. How is your MS doing?
Mine just love to go for walks and he is a beautiful travelling companion if you drive outstation.MS has a very big appetite and loves to eat. Got to control their feed so as they will not be overweight. My also loves fruits especially bananas, apples and pear.
It is not neccessary to have a grooming table. All u need is a coffee table where you can be comfortable yourself when you trim him. Always remember to maintain the eyebrow shape and the muzzle look as they are the trade mark of an MS.
MS must be housetrained and can be trained easily as they are quick leaner and very observant.
Good luck and enjoy every minute with your MS.
Richard
