If you have never groomed a dog before, it is best to find a professional groomer that your dog likes. The groomer can teach you how to care for your dog, and can give you tips and advice on the tools you will need to do the job at home. Some breeds need to be groomed more than others, and some breeds may actually suffer if they are groomed too often. Your groomer and your veterinarian can both provide you with information on your specific dog's needs, and help make the dog grooming experience enjoyable for both you and your pet. They can also recommend the proper dog grooming supplies and tools required to get the job done the right way.
Even if you've never used dog grooming clippers, you can learn to use them and save a lot of money over taking your dog to the groomer every few weeks. Dogs with short or thin fur are easiest to groom at home. To get started you'll need dog grooming clippers, scissors, a dog brush, and a leash. Ideally, the scissors should be reserved just for dog grooming. The dog hair clippers should be those made for animals only because the clippers used on people aren't sturdy enough to stand up to dog hair, which is coarser, and which there's more of.
In general, short haired dogs like Boston Terriers can be groomed every two weeks, but longer haired dogs like Schnauzers need to be groomed at least weekly for this reason. Of course there is a big difference between dogs that spend their time outdoors and dogs that spend their time indoors. Most dogs who are outdoor dogs will need to be bathed every five days or so. Inside dogs generally require less bathing. Also you will find that you need to groom your dog with greater frequency as he ages. Older dogs tend to shed hair faster and smell bad more often. If you are new to dog ownership and therefore dog grooming as well, don't worry.
