Hair clipping and brushing: Do brush your dogs hair regularly and clip it as often as is necessary. Do use the right tools; here we are talking both brushes and hair clippers. Besides the aesthetic value of hair brushing and clipping, other benefits include the ease of removal of dirt during bathing and the prevention of matting. Do not brush with too much force as this may cause injury. When matting has occurred, then brush gently or better still, just clip the hair. Do not clip too close to the skin to give your dog a naked look. This will be harmful as it exposes your dog to skins cuts.
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.
Some groomers work specifically on various types of dogs such as small, toy or large breeds. Many groomers are only set up to handle small dogs and do not work on large or giant breeds. Be sure to talk to the groomer in advance if you dog has any special needs or requirements.
