Regular grooming is extremely important for your four legged friend. Not only does it keep your dog's coat clean and manageable, they also get a quick health check and lots of attention and cuddles!
Popular non-shedding breeds such as Poodles, Bichon's etc, require much more thorough grooming than other dogs.
- All non-shedding breeds should visit a groomer every 3-6 weeks in order to keep their coat in good condition. They MUST be brushed at home in-between grooming appointments. If you are unsure on the how to brush your dog correctly, I am more than happy to show you the correct way for your breed and what brush is recommended.
- Introduce your puppy to grooming at a very young age (ideally two weeks after their final vaccinations) so they become used to the grooming process and environment. This will make it much easier and less costly for you in the long term, plus it will become more pleasurable for your little dog.
- If you wash your dogs feet and legs after a walk it is important not to rub them vigorously with a towel as this creates matts. Squeeze the water out of their legs with a towel and then brush them. If you can use a hair dryer too, then even better!
- If you discover matts under the common areas such as armpits and ears, don't leave them. They will become quite painful for your dog as they start to pull on their skin. Either carefully trim them out yourself or, alternatively, bring them in as soon as possible and I can remove them for you.
