Even if your dog doesn’t look particularly scruffy, grooming provides many health benefits, which may not be immediately obvious. Please read about the importance of dog grooming your “best friend” before scheduling your first appointment. 

Brushing your dog ventilates their coat, helping it grow healthy and strong and taking away old and damaged hair. Grooming also ensures that your dog’s skin can breathe and keeps down the level of grease in their coat. Too much grease can block pores and cause irritation and all sorts of skin problems. Running a brush through their coat acts as a nice massage that promotes healthy blood circulation. Grooming is a great bonding time; the more regularly you do it, the more they’ll get used to it, and it should become a soothing, relaxing experience for you both.

Visiting a Professional Groomer

A professional groomer has all the tools and expertise you are unlikely to have at home. Short-haired breeds are less likely to require a full-on professional groom as regularly as longer-haired breeds, but it’s still an excellent opportunity to get them fully checked over. Once there, they’ll have the right tools to enhance your dog’s coat and can offer a word of advice as to how you can groom your dog at home. Groomers can advise which products are best, how to keep your dog calm, and which grooming equipment you may require to best suit your dog’s type of coat. Not only that, but it provides a social interaction for your dog, which gets them accustomed to a different environment and to being handled by strangers, which in the long run helps in all sorts of situations.
