How To Groom A Dog
Excellent De-shedding Tool
of Professional Caliber!
However, if you are a really fastidious housekeeper, you might want to check out our list of dogs that do not shed, or only a minimal amount for a little less time spent grooming.
Give Your Dog A Special Brush And Bath
An active pet picks up a lot of dirt, debris, sticky burrs and the like during his romps around the park or back yard, which can contribute to an "unrefined" doggie odor. Getting this stuff out, along with dry skin and loose hair, will make him more comfortable and is an important part of how to groom a dog.
When you set aside some regular time for grooming, you also become more familiar with your dogs
overall condition and are more likely to spot any changes in his health. This alone is a good enough
reason to maintain your dogs hygiene, but an additional plus is the chance you get to enjoy some
one-on-one time with your pet.
These days, dogs are looking good and smelling even better with the availability of high quality dog shampoos and conditioners as well as deodorizing sprays and even colognes. There are even specialized shampoos for the itchy coat, the stinky coat, the dry coat, the snarly coat and even organic shampoos for those more sensitive puppies. Finally, we have everything we need to keep our dogs looking smart and welcome in the best of places.
Grooming The Paws, Nails And Ears
Paws can be the target for burrs, imbedded sharp objects, scratches, cuts, painful cracks, infections and broken nails. In other words, they need frequent inspection and some TLC. You can learn about paw care here. Ears are an area that dogs cannot self-groom or easily protect. As a result, they are often invaded by parasites and vulnerable to infection. They can also accumulate excess wax, dirt and debris which needs regular removal. We have written a detailed page on cleaning dogs ears because it is so important to a dog's health and comfort.
The Importance Of Canine Dental Care

Here you will find out everything you've always wanted to know about cleaning your dog's teeth. - well, almost everything - We've given it our best shot!!

For long term dental care, our canines "canines" depend also on a healthy nutritious diet. The right kind of ingredients typically found in premium dog food will promote a healthy immune system. This in turn leads to production of the right acids in the saliva to fight plaque.
Professional Dog Grooming
Asking for referrals is a good idea - check with the posh doggies in your neighborhood for a 'yelp' you can trust! But, before entrusting your dog to any unknown clippers, visit the salon personally to make sure the groomers really know their stuff and treat their puppies well.
Along with at-home brushing/combing and bathing routines, a periodic professional head-to-tail spruce will be a big help in maintaining a healthy coat and protection from parasites. These routines, along with a nutritious diet, are especially important if you have a pet with sensitivities and is prone to dog skin allergies.
Lastly, if you have a pet that easily develops mats and snarls, be sure to read our detailed article on "how to undo your dog's tangles". It will help you handle this snarly problem in the gentlest manner. Specialized detangling and shedding combs are just some of the dog grooming tools your dog wants you to have, to make this job a lot easier on him!
