IS THERE REALLY THAT MUCH NEED FOR GROOMING??

 

IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO KEEP YOUR DOG WELL GROOMED FOR A NUMBER OF REASONS.

APART FROM THE FACT THAT YOUR HOME WILL SMELL MUCH FRESHER, YOUR DOG FEELS MORE COMFORTABLE WHEN HE/SHE HAS A NICE CLEAN COAT. THEY FEEL MUCH THE SAME AS WE DO WHEN GRUBBY AND SMELLY!

  THERE ARE ALSO THE HEALTH ISSUES. REGULAR GROOMING OF YOUR DOGS COAT HELPS TO ELIMINATE MATTING WHICH CAN BE EXTREMELY UNCOMFORTABLE, YOUR DOG'S SKIN MAY BECOME SORE AS THE HAIR WILL PULL. THIS CAN LEAD TO RESTRICTED BLOOD FLOW AND EXCESSIVE CHEWING OF THE AREA WHICH IN ITSELF CAN CAUSE SKIN PROBLEMS. REGULAR BRUSHING WILL MASSAGE THE SKIN AND STIMULATE THE BLOOD SUPPLY TO THE SKIN AND COAT THUS KEEPING IT NICE AND SHINY.

  IT IS ALSO A GOOD WAY TO KEEP AN EYE ON THE GENERAL HEALTH OF YOUR DOG. IF YOU DON'T REGULARLY BRUSH YOUR DOG, WOULD YOU NOTICE IF THEY DEVELOPED ANY LITTLE LUMPS OR BUMPS OR HAD IN FACT PICKED UP ANY SMALL INFECTIONS FROM WOUNDS ETC.? OR EVEN WORSE - FLEAS AND TICKS!

  THE GROOMING PROCESS WILL ALSO HELP YOU TO FORM A BOND WITH YOUR DOG AND STRENGTHEN YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH HIM/HER. THEY WILL BEGIN TO SEE THIS TIME WITH YOU AS PLEASURABLE AS YOU ARE SPENDING TIME WITH THEM AND GIVING THEM YOUR ATTENTION. WITH THIS IN MIND IT IS BEST TO START THE GROOMING ROUTINE EARLY AS PUPPIES.

  IF YOU INTEND ON USING A PROFESSIONAL DOG GROOMER, REGULAR BRUSHING BETWEEN VISITS WILL ALSO HELP AS MOST GROOMERS WILL CHARGE EXTRA FOR AN EXCESSIVELY MATTED COAT AND ALSO DOESN'T MAKE FOR A VERY PLEASURABLE EXPERIENCE FOR YOUR DOG OR THE GROOMER!

  YOUR GROOMER WILL GLADLY GIVE YOU ADVICE ON THE CORRECT CARE OF YOUR PARTICULAR DOG'S COAT, IE. NAIL CARE, WHICH BRUSHES AND COMBS TO USE AND HOW OFTEN ETC.

HAPPY DOGS MAKE HAPPY OWNERS!!
