Grooming your Dog
KEEP YOUR DOG HEALTHY AND HAPPY
Grooming your puppy/dog
All dogs will benefit from regular grooming, whether it is a short haired breed or one with a long or fluffy coat.
Reasons for grooming – Remember ‘CHAIR’
Cleanliness – keeping your dog’s coat clean by removing dirt and dead hair helps encourage new hair growth and reduces the amount of hair deposited on household furniture
Health – grooming helps to stimulate new coat growth and prevents the formation of knots which may lead to skin irritation
Appearance – most owners take a pride in their dogs looking smart, and regular grooming will certainly help your dog to look his best
Inspection – regular grooming is also a great way to check for parasites or any suspicious lumps and bumps
Relationship – grooming is part of dog’s socialisation activities. Regular grooming helps create a bond between you and your dog, and accustoms the dog to being handled.
