12 Jan The Importance of Dog Grooming at Home
Why is dog grooming important you ask?
Dog grooming is essential for a happy, healthy dog. Not only does grooming your dog keep your dog looking and feeling fabulous but keeps your home cleaner and more hygienic with a little less hair.
Grooming your dog ensures a healthy coat that can breath, free from matts, dirt and grease which can cause skin problems and irritation.
How often you groom your dog varies from breed to breed and different coat types. There is a lot involved in grooming whether it’s cleaning their teeth to prevent bad breath, wiping their ears and eyes so they can experience the world comfortably, clipping your dog’s nails and brushing and bathing their coat.
