It’s important that you take good care of your dog and ensure that it is regularly groomed. This can help it stay healthy throughout its life, but it also means that it will look extra cute! Thankfully, dog grooming isn’t too difficult, and you should be able to do most of it yourself.

Has your little pup been a good boy and is now ready for a makeover? Here are some great grooming tips.

If In Doubt, Take To A Groomer

The more grooming that you do, the easier it will get. Eventually, you could become quite the pro when it comes to styling your dog! However, when you are just starting out, there might be some jobs that you might not be so confident about doing yourself, such as trimming the pooch’s nails. If there is ever anything that are unsure of, such as this, it’s always worth taking your dog to a dog grooming company who can take care of it for you. They might even be able to give you some tips for taking care of your dog’s grooming needs at home.


Check For Ticks

Ideally, you should be brushing your dog every couple of days. If they have particularly long hair, such as breeds like Afghan Hounds or Pyrenean Shepherds, then you need to be sure to brush them every day so that their fair doesn’t get too matted. While you are brushing, it is really important that you check for ticks. These are little insects that attach themselves to the skin and feed off the dog’s blood. They can pass diseases between animals so should be removed as soon as you spot them. Make sure that you kill the tick by squeezing it or burning it once removed as they can also attach themselves to humans and cause Lyme disease.

Always Use Dog Products

If you ever run out of dog shampoo, don’t ever be tempted to use your own. This will be a lot stronger than dog shampoo and could cause your pup to suffer from some irritations. So, if you ever run out of shampoo for your pooch, you will have to wait to bathe them until you get some more. If they are particularly dirty, you can always rinse them down with water to try and remove excess dirt for the time being.


Distract Them With Bath Toys

Do you find that your dog gets a bit too excited at bathtime and they can be very hard to handle? There’s one way around this – you just need to put some toys in the bath with them so that there is something to distract them with. It’s a good idea to give them some toys that they can chew so that they aren’t so mouthy with you and try to nip you while you’re bathing them.

Once you get the hang of your dog’s grooming, you will find that the two of you can have a lot of fun in the bath. Plus, your dog will look fantastic at the end of it!
