Dog Grooming - Getting Started

Regular grooming is important to a dogs overall health, comfort and well-being. Dogs are not naturally as fastidious as cats and need help from their human companions in the care-taking area – especially if they are a long-haired or thick-coated breed. Even so-called hairless breeds, such as the Chinese Crested and Peruvian Inca Orchid, need regular skin care. There are four general areas of a dog that need routine attention: the coat, nails, ears and mouth. It doesn’t take a great deal of time to learn how to care for each of these areas. With a little practice, most owners easily learn how to keep their dogs well-groomed. Fortunately, most dogs like the process– especially if they are groomed on a regular basis starting when they are puppies. Owners should start grooming their dogs in short sessions, using lots of praise and treats to make it thoroughly enjoyable for their pet.
