Retriever (Labrador)

Labradors are one of the most popular breeds of dogs in the UK and they need to be groomed no more than once every 4 weeks, although this may need to be increased in the summer months to prevent matting.

We all know that Labradors love a nice pool of mud or a swim in the river, so a quick rinse down and towel dry will be sufficient in between your regular grooming schedule.
