What Type of Grooming? Will you be simply brushing out Fido's coat or providing a full on manicure — brushing the coat, shampoo and conditioning, clipping toenails, brushing teeth and trimming. Before sitting down to groom your dog understand what dog grooming supplies you need to have on the ready. Where Will the Grooming Take Place? Be prepared for a uncooperative pup. Professional groomers utilize grooming aids, nooses and leads, and other special equipment to complement the dog grooming area. Chances are that you do not have such supplies at home and must utilize household items like bathtubs and your everyday leash. (You are able to purchase dog grooming nooses and leads if you feel it would be beneficial to aide in restraint.)
It is fairly simple to recognize the frequency with which your dog should be bathed simply by observing its behavior. If your dog is scratching or appears to be dirty then it is time to groom your dog. In fact, if your dog is scratching from insect bites, then you have actually waited too long to groom your dog, but the sooner the better. If you notice that your dog is scratching every 10 days then you probably need to groom your dog every week.
Dog Grooming – The Bath. An important part of dog grooming is the bath. Although it is okay to brush your dog daily, you should not bath your dog too often. Overbathing will reduce the vital oils that help keep your dog's coat healthy and lead to irritation and itching of the skin. Four times a year is a good rule of thumb, but this will vary depending on the breed of your dog and the types of activities you and your pet regularly do. You should consult your vet or a professional groomer if you are unclear of the proper frequency for your dog.
