In another thread I noticed someone mention that it is important to clean a dogs anal sacks. My dog doesn't tend to have a odor problem so he usually only gets a bath when he gets muddy (which is fairly often lately) and I only use doggy shampoo when he gets really muddy. His fur does not tend to mat and never needs to be cut. I do brush him fairly often, but only to reduce the amount of shedding.
So I guess I have two questions, since this is the first dog that I've ever been the primary care giver to.
1. Am I doing everything right for my little Chow/Corgi mix?
2. Do I need to be cleaning his anal sacks and if so how on earth does one do that?
