The Top 10 Dog Grooming Tips

Who doesn't want their furry friend to look the best, but having them professionally groomed all the time is not financially possible for everyone. Check out our top 10 dog grooming tips to help make your dog look like he/she just stepped out of the beauty parlor.

#1 – Baby Powder

Have tangles? Baby powder is your new best friend. Sprinkle it on your dog’s tangles and you will be able to comb them out a lot easier. Plus, your dog will smell good. If your dog has knots so you definitely should check out the knot out grooming comb!

#2 – Flea Combs Aren’t Just For Fleas

For dogs with longer hair on their faces, like Shih Tzus, Schnauzers, and most doodles, a flea comb works great to detangle without causing pain or discomfort.

#3 – Trim The Paws

Trimming the hair around and in between your dog’s pads has many positives: it’s easier to wipe them clean after being outside; they don’t get things such as burrs or thistles caught as easily. Your dog will also have better traction on slippery floors without the hair getting in the way of their pads.

#4 – Use Appropriate Brushes

Make sure you use the right brush for your dog’s coat type:

#5 – Use Appropriate Shampoo and Conditioner
Use shampoo and conditioner that is formulated for dogs, not humans. Human shampoos can be harsh and toxic if ingested. Choose an all-natural shampoo and conditioner. Talk to your vet prior to use if your dog has any allergies, sensitives or skin conditions.

#6 – Double Rinse

Make sure you rinse every bit of shampoo and conditioner out of your dog. Left in the product can irritate the skin causing problems such as dry skin, flaking, itchiness, etc.

#7 –  Provide Great Shower/Bath

Bathing/showering your dog is a good idea for several reasons:

•If your dog is trained to enjoy bathing, the experience will be pleasant for him, similar to going for a walk or playing chase in the yard.

•Any positive interaction between you and your dog strengthens the human-animal bond.

•Bathing removes dirt and odors from his skin and coat.

•Frequent bathing is necessary to heal inflamed or infected skin and damaged hair.

•Finally, while not often realized, bathing can have important health benefits for you and your family and combine it with the Multifunction Handheld Pet Shower is the best thing to do!

#8 – Shiny Fur

The company provides amazing grooming solutions that give your dog’s coat an amazingly soft and silky feel and appearance. Even better, it creates a barrier that keeps dirt from adhering to your dog’s coat, making it easier to just brush them off after they have been outside.

#9 – Trim Nail Regularly

Most dog owners let their dog nails go too long between trims. On average, their nails should be trimmed every three to four weeks. Your dog’s nails shouldn’t touch the ground, so if you hear that “clacking” noise on hard surfaces, he is probably overdoing for a trim. The painless nail clipper will do a great job for you!

#10 – Keep Your Dog's Teeth Clean

Your dog's mouth is going to a lot of places and sometimes they eat things that they should not. Keeping your dog's teeth clean is essential for providing support to oral and dental health by stimulating blood flow to keep your dog healthy! A great way to do that is with dental chews!
