There is no shortage of groomers these days. It’s up to you to decide whether you want to groom and bathe your pet at home or take them to a groomer. Here’s our guide to grooming your pet.

 

When should you start grooming your dog?

It’s advised to keep a puppy with its mother for at least 40 days. After you get your puppy home it’s best to start vaccinations. Two weeks after the vaccinations are complete you can take your puppy to a groomer or give them a bath at home.

How often should your dog be groomed?

The length of your pet’s hair and the type of coat they have determines how often they should be groomed. For example, a labrador has to be groomed every four weeks or once a month. You can consult your veterinarian for the same. Not bathing your pet will make them look and smell dirty while bathing them too frequently will dry out their skin. So it’s best to keep a healthy balance.

 

How long does grooming your pet take?

It generally takes about 2 to 3 hours for your pet to be groomed and bathed but the time frame changes depending on the size of your pet.

 

What products should be used on your pet?

Just like us, humans, dogs too have their own shampoos and conditioners designed for their coat. There is a particular shampoo for thick coats, dry coat, normal coat, flea shampoo and so on. It’s best to consult your veterinarian to choose a shampoo suitable for your pet.

 

How should your pet be dried?

If you are bathing your pet at home you can use towels specially designed for pets. If you take your pet to a grooming service they generally have driers. Since a dog’s ears are more sensitive than human make sure the groomers cover your dog’s ears.

 

Are there any benefits of grooming your dog?

Yes, there are multiple benefits of grooming your pet. Grooming ensures better hygiene for your pet. It helps in checking and treating fleas and ticks and promotes healthy coats. A groomer can identify any skin issues or infections.
