Labrador Grooming:

Labradors are moderate shedders and will need to be brushed every few days - brushing with a deshedding brush is highly recommended. Like all dog breeds with floppy ears, Labradors need to have their ears properly dried after their bath, and regularly checked to avoid infections.
