Pamper your pooch with great grooming

Regularly grooming your dog will help maintain healthy skin and will also make huge improvements to the quality of their coat. A well groomed dog will be a happy, healthy dog. Regular grooming will give your dog fresher breath and his coat will shed less.

Most pet stores across the country offer grooming services that are tailored to your dog’s specific needs. Most groomers would recommend that your dog becomes a true doggy diva and has a full day of being groomed. This will usually include a bath, a medicated shampoo and a deep conditioner. Your dog will be dried off, then have her nails clipped, ears cleaned and her teeth thoroughly cleaned.

Between these nose-to-tail grooming sessions, there are lots of things that you can do to make sure that your dog remains in tip-top condition. Brushing your dog weekly will remove any dead hair. You can finish the weekly brush by applying dry shampoo to your dog – this will help reduce odour and give his or her coat a glossy sheen. It’s worth the effort in teaching your dog to be comfortable in having his teeth cleaned, and you can buy canine friendly toothpaste, which is available from most pet stores. There are also drops that can be placed in water that can maintain dental health and freshen his breath.

Finding dog products that contain natural ingredients will help prevent any skin infections. Regular grooming will benefit your dog’s health, and is also a great opportunity for you and your dog to bond.
