Brushes. Almost all dogs need to be brushed at least on occasion, so having a good brush is an essential part of being fully equipped with the necessary grooming supplies. Brushing your dog regularly helps to avoid tangles and can help to keep your dog's skin and coat healthy. It can also help you to identify any problems such as fleas or ticks. Paw and Nose Care. When grooming your dog, sometimes the most sensitive parts are the paws and the nose. These parts can need a bit of special attention and care too, especially in the winter months when the nose can become dry. The paws can also become dry or cracked during the winter months due to exposure to unpleasant conditions such as snow and salt on the road.
Some dogs have long silky coats – Yorkshire Terriers and Maltese for example – and these need special care. They have little protective undercoat so you need to be very gentle when grooming, particularly as they need daily brushing and combing. Other breeds have long but dense coats, such as Collies, and these just need twice weekly brushing with a pin-brush and combing with a wide-toothed comb. Excess hair will need to be trimmed once a month. Golden Retrievers and others with less dense hair need less grooming – weekly brushing and combing and a twice yearly trim for legs and between the toes. Other breeds require regular – often weekly or even twice weekly – professional trimming and clipping. Poodles and Bichon Frise for example need a lot of grooming so you need to get your dog accustomed to these regular trips to the groomers from when he is a tiny puppy. Unless you are actually trained to do this clipping don't attempt it yourself – leave it to the professionals.
One of the most important things you can do for your dog is maintain a consistent and proper dog grooming routine. In addition to keeping your dog clean and smelling good, for both you and your guest's sake, there are many health concerns that proper grooming address. Your dog's coat and skin are very important to your dog and oftentimes are an indicator of other health problems that may be lurking. Grooming your dog properly, following correct dog grooming instructions, helps to keep her healthy while also building an important bond between you and your pet.
