Grooming is one of the most important aspects that pet parents need to take care of. -Poorvi Anthony

  • Daily brushing– Proper grooming includes daily brushing of the coat, the dead hair of your pet will be removed thus reducing the problem of shedding.
  • Bonding– Try to keep each session short with gentle reassurance, calmness, and petting. Groom to bond and make it fun.
  •  Pet care products– A dog’s skin is more sensitive than ours, use only pet care products.
  •  Trimming with care– Start trimming your dog’s nails as early as possible to help them get accustomed to the routine. Consult your groomer. A nail grinder can be used to trim and smooth your pet’s nails. But be extremely gentle. Give your dog treats as you do each nail and your dog will actually relax and look forward to having his nails done.
  •  Ear care – When cleaning your dog’s ears put ear cleaning solution in the ears and then gently massage the base of the ears. Leave for some time and wipe off the excess with cotton. Never probe inside the ear.
  •  Paw care– Trim paw hair regularly to avoid painful matting, always check the paws for ticks.
  •  Facial wrinkles– Breeds with lose facial skin or wrinkles need special attention. Clean the folds with a damp cotton pad and thoroughly dry the area.
  •  Blow with care– When using a blow dryer for your pet, be sure to use a dryer with very low or no heat. Keep it at a comfortable distance. Ensure your pet is at ease with the noise.
  •  Eye care– Clean their eyes with clean, damp cotton wool using a separate piece for each eye. Ask your vet for specific eye drops.
  •  Tooth brushing– For teaching tooth brushing put some toothpaste on your finger and massage his teeth and gums. Let him lick the toothpaste. Make sure you’re using dog toothpaste.
  •  Bathing sessions– Bathing your pet too frequently can be damaging for their skin and coat. It makes the skin dry and flaky by stripping off moisture and essential oils. While bathing never spray water onto their face directly. For long hair breeds, massage the coat in the direction of hair growth to avoid tangles. After a bath, wrap your pet in a large, absorbent towel. Gently rub him dry. If he has long hair, avoid heavy rubbing. It can tangle the fur; blot instead. Don’t allow water to get into the ear canal during bath time. If your pooch is too naughty, you can place cotton balls in his ears for bath sessions. Always use a conditioner after bathing, as it will add shine, make his hair soft, and reduce shedding. Do not trim your pet’s whiskers, as they are vibrissae and are sophisticated devices that help the dog feel its way through the world. It is recommended not to feed your pet before their grooming appointment and only groom with patience and love.About Just Dogs
