Peticure: Do clean your dogs nails to remove any hidden dirt that may cause infection and trim the nails regularly. Long nails can grow into the soft paw tissue and injure the dog. Use the right nail clippers for this. Do not clip too deep; remember to watch out for the quick and stop clipping to avoid cutting living tissue.
In addition to just washing, clipping and grooming your dog the groomer will also condition the coat, clip the nails, clean the ears and empty the anal glands. If you dont want any of these grooming services provided be sure to talk to the groomer in advance. For those dogs that are nervous, timid or aggressive it is very important to discuss their temperament with the groomer prior to the first appointment. Most groomers will take dog-aggressive dogs only very early or as the last appointments in the day to avoid any possible complication in the waiting room or grooming salon. If you have a dog that has had a negative experience at another groomers or that snaps or tends to bite be sure to let the groomer know so he or she can take the appropriate precautions. Notify the groomer if the dog has any known allergies or is prone to skin rashes, hotspots, or dry skin conditions. If you have specialized products that you use with your dog you should make the groomer aware so they can have the same products on hand when the dog arrives for his or her first appointment.
