Benefits of Dog Grooming

Dog Grooming is an important part of your dog's health, with regular brushing and combing helping to remove dead hair and dirt and prevent matting. Dogs who are regularly groomed tend to have a healthier and shinier coat because it stimulates the blood supply to the skin.

Dog grooming is one of your dog's basic needs and an important part of dog ownership. Just like people, dogs need physical maintenance to look and feel their best. Fortunately, dogs do not need to bathe as often as people, but you do need to learn how much grooming your dog actually needs and keep it on a schedule. Generally, a dog’s grooming needs depend on the breed and hair type. If your dog has a skin, ear or nail condition, follow your veterinarian’s instructions regarding grooming your dog.

Dog Grooming Tips

Dog grooming is a very important part of your dogs life. It involves a strong relationship between the owner, pet and groomer to properly care for you dog's grooming needs. Here are some helpful tips:

  • Most dogs do not like having their claws trimmed. Start trimming claws in young animals so that they get used to the process.
  • If the hair between the toes and pads are overlapping the pads themselves, your dog's feet will slide when walking and can cause them to slip and cause injury. The whole purpose of their paw pads is to offer texture to grip the surface they are walking on.
