Grooming is one of the more puzzling aspects of dog ownership. Thankfully, with these quick and easy pet grooming questions and answers, it doesn’t have to be. Keep reading for the four most common questions answered!
1. Do I Really Need a Professional Groomer?
While it’s not mandatory that your pet see a professional groomer, it is highly beneficial and takes some stress off of both you and your dog. An expert groomer is trained in safely, comfortably grooming your dog and has all the versatile tools necessary to best suit your dog.
2. How Do I Know It’s Time to Groom My Dog?
Learning how to time your pet’s grooming sessions can be tricky. Longer haired pups with fur that tends to get matted benefit best from frequent visits, even for a touch-up. If their fur is in their eyes, they have that special wet dog smell, or their claws have gotten too long, it’s time for a groom.
3. How Can I Make My Dog Comfortable During Grooming?
Many dogs dislike the grooming process. There are steps you can take to make them more comfortable with grooming, and even enjoy it! Getting them routinely groomed at an early age is the easiest way to make them more comfortable.
But first, get them used to having their paws, ears, and head touched by playing with and holding these areas. Also, help them adjust to elevated surfaces, and ask whether your groomer has a viewing window so they can see their owner is nearby.
4. What Can I Do Between Visits to Maintain Their Groom?
Maintaining a groom makes their next one easier and more comfortable. Brushing them at home is a significant help to your groomer. Brushing their teeth is also beneficial for their health and beauty. Not only will it keep them comfy and stylish, it helps them further adjust to being groomed.
