Pampering Your Dog

Friday, July 14, 2017

dogpamperIn general, dogs don’t like being groomed but remember that it’s an important part of your dog’s health. Regular brushing and combing helps prevent matting, removes dead hair and removes dirt. It’s also a good way for your to bond with your dog. Start grooming him at an early age so that it becomes part of his regular routine.

  • Brush your dog regularly.
  • Bathe your dog about once a month under normal circumstances.
    In warm weather take your dog outside to dry naturally. You could use a blow dryer for long haired breeds on a colder day. Be sure that you don’t put the dryer on high heat and keep it at a safe distance from your dog while drying.
    When bathing your dog, wash him from the front to the back and don’t put any soap on his face.
    While brushing, always feel for lumps or bumps. If you feel any, schedule a trip to your vet as soon as possible.
  • Clean your dog’s ears with a cotton ball and try not to get any water in them.
  • When clipping your dog’s nails, use a clipper designed for dogs and I would recommend that you just clip the tips.
  • In the summer months brush your dog with a flea brush and use it everyday.
  • After all of this grooming, make sure you have plenty of dog treats on hand!
