Grooming Your Dog or Puppy

Dog grooming or pet grooming is an important part of dog care. All Breeds require grooming, how much depends on the breed, age, or health of the pet. Regular grooming helps to ensure the dog is healthy and comfortable. It is important to note that while many dogs"shed", others (such as the Bichon and Poodle), do not shed as profusely, and require grooming by a professional every 68 weeks.

The main reasons for grooming include:

  • Decreased chance of various health problems, such as thrush, scratches, and other skin problems.
  • General cleanliness of the dog.
  • Monitoring of the dog's health by checking for cuts, heat, swelling, lameness, or changes in temperament, all of which could be indicative of illness.
  • Forging a closer bond between dog and owner.
  • Reducing infestation of external parasites on skin.
