Advice For Pet Grooming

Trimming is best left to the professionals, but we've included some recommendations here and in our DIY dog grooming video for your convenience. It's critical to bathe your dog before trimming their hair, unless there are mats in their coat that need to be shaved or clipped away.

The frequency with which you should bathe your dog is influenced on the sort of hair he has and how active he is. A dog's skin will become dry and bereft of natural oils if it is overly cleaned. Dogs with smooth coats who are in between baths may benefit from grooming wipes.

What is the average grooming routine for a dog? This varies by breed, but a Poodle or a Yorkie, for example, may need a bath and a haircut every few months.

Check for parabens, dyes, and sulphates in your pet shampoo. Because the PH levels are different and it may not be as mild, human shampoo should not be used. Tearless pet shampoo is perfect for use around the face because it is gentle on the skin and does not irritate the eyes.

Brushing your dog on a daily basis is ideal, but brushing your dog three times a week will suffice for maintenance in between professional dog grooming visits. Brushing can be done at any time during the day if it is more convenient for you.

To make it a positive bonding experience, use treats, toys, or chews before and during the process. For the best results, use a slicker brush and comb together.
