Dogs are cute, dogs are loyal, dogs are man’s best friend. The least we can do as humans is to make sure they get the best dog grooming ever. After all, they do deserve an amazing treatment since they have been good boys. But grooming services can get pricey and heavy on the old wallet. Following a few of our tips would help any dog get treated like royalty.
Set aside a short session for playing.
Your dogs are energetic. Let’s admit the fact that they’d tire you out before you could even throw the next ball away from them. Setting a few minutes aside of your whole dog grooming treatment to serve as playtime for your dog would help. As we all know, they wouldn’t chill out or sit still in a tub anyway so might as well, try to get that energy down or make playtime as a reward.
Know your dog
Dogs are as unique as human beings. Some people hate being touched and some dogs also hate being touched. Know what your dog was bred to do. For example, poodles are usually used for dog shows thus, they are used to all the dog grooming processes and treatments, unlike terriers who were bred to dig after small animals so they might consider a darting brush and consider it as prey and immediately swat at it.
Brush and comb your dog’s fur
Tossing your dog right into the tub without properly brushing his fur could become an even bigger nightmare after the bath. Brushing and combing your dog’s hair and fur will remove knots. It also helps in getting rid of debris in the coat and this becomes the perfect time to check for parasites or any kind of skin irritations, lumps or any sore spots that might require a thorough checkup and treatment. Plus, dogs love being brushed.
