Routine Dog Grooming
Some aspects of grooming you may prefer to leave to a professional. However, there are a few simple things that you should be doing at home. Dog grooming involves regular brushing which can actually be an enjoyable activity for you and your pet. You may want to check with your veterinarian to see what brush or comb they recommend and how often you should brush your pet. Regular brushing will keep your dog's coat healthy and allow you to bathe them less often because it removes some dirt from their coat.
Some animals love baths and some don't. Even if your furry friend enjoys bath time, you may not have the time and energy. Many pet owners choose to have their pets professionally bathed. Different pets also have different bathing requirements. The best pet bathing techniques and products vary from breed to breed. Veterinarians and professional groomers will know the best way to care for your pet's skin and coat.
Other Grooming Services
There's more to pet grooming than just bathing. Dental check-ups should be performed by a veterinarian. If your pet requires ear cleaning, this is better left to the pros as well. Nail trimming can be done at home. However, many pet owners are concerned about clipping too close or being able to keep their pets still. Many animals don't enjoy the process, so you may want to let someone else be "the bad guy".
