At Home Grooming Guide: Dogs
Grooming is an essential part of coat maintenance and wellbeing, especially when we can’t visit our groomers. It’s important to take certain steps and groom your dog at home between professional grooms. Here at Pets & Friends, we totally get that you can’t always make it to the groomers, so we’ve put together a quick guide to grooming your dog at home safely.
What grooming can I do at home?
Some grooming elements are easy to do at home and can even help create a bond between you and your dog from an early age.
Daily brushing will help keep your dog’s coat healthy, especially if they are a long-haired breed.
- Brush out all the coat
- Follow up with a comb to remove dead hear
- Brush well under the legs, belly and behind the ears (which are prone to matting)
If your dog is double coated, investing in a de-shedding tool will help keep their coat in good condition between grooms.
What about bathing my dog?
Not every dog dislikes bath time, and if you’re between grooms with a messy coat, a quick bath at home is always a great idea. You can also use doggy wipes to keep them fresh between grooms.
- Use dog friendly shampoo and conditioner
- Wipe in and around their ears daily
- Wipe below their eyes if you dog is prone to tear staining
- Always keep their bottom clean
If you’re unsure about grooming your dog at home, you can speak to our grooming experts about which products/treatments to use. Or you can book in at your local Pets Parlour spa and grooming salon to keep your dog looking and feeling their best.
