The Dos and Donts of Dog Grooming! Most of us think that dog grooming procedures are pretty simple. Well, they probably are or are they? Have you thought about good and bad practices in dog grooming? We will look at a few of the fundamental dos and donts in this space. Hopefully, these tips will help you be better at grooming your dog.
There are several ways to find a good groomer and one of the most obvious is to talk to other dog owners that you see as you are out and about with your pet. Dog owners in general tend to be very willing to give recommendations as well as warnings about good and bad experiences they may have had with groomers in your area. If you see a dog that looks just like you want your dog or has just the clip that you have pictured for your dog be sure to speak with the owner and find out what groomer they use.
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.
