Every four to six is the ideal time after which a visit to the vet or a professional groomer is necessary. However, during this period, maintaining your dog's grooming is a key part of providing care.
If you struggle with consistency or you don't want to forget, you can always create a schedule to keep on track.
Once your schedule is up, here are three common grooming activities that you can carry out:
Lucky if your pet loves water. If they don't, they would still need to take baths anyway. Baths can be pretty relaxing and they keep your dog from stinking up the entire place.
Using a dog soap recommended by the vet is ideal because they are generally less harsh and friendly on dog skin.
Remember to wash the paws, inside the ears, and generally wash all of the hard-to-reach places.
If you don't want nail marks all over your clothing or claw tracks on the rug, then take nail trims very seriously.
One point to note however is that you should always leave some allowance, don't cut all the way down.
This way, you can avoid mistakenly causing injury to your beloved pet. Remember that you can give your pet treats for being a good boy/girl during the nail trim.
Looking to avoid matted fur? This is the best go-to grooming option. Brushing sessions are especially important if your pet has a lot of fur and sheds significantly.
You can arrest the shedding ahead of time, and keep their coat smooth and shiny. After brushing, you can spray them with delicious scenting dog sprays that you can get from Petland stores.
You can Max smelling like a peach if you want.
Just like humans, constant grooming is what gets your pet smelling and looking like a million dollars!
