Regular dog grooming can also help you learn to communicate better with your pet. As you learn to respond to Fido's needs, he also learns acceptable ways of letting you know when he is uncomfortable or in pain. As your dog becomes accustomed to a scheduled routine and around grooming tools you may find that he behaves more calmly in other social situations as well – such as when children approach and want to play with the puppy's ears or tail. If your dog has already learned to be comfortable having her ears handled or being around dog grooming clippers, she can take this in stride and stay calm through the attention.
When you first start out using dog grooming clippers, you don't want your expectations to be too high. Chances are you'll be giving your dog a simple, practical cut rather than styling him like a professional would. Then again, if you do a beautiful job first time out, maybe you should consider a career change! Most people who groom their dogs themselves accept that they're trying to make their dog clean and comfortable, not ready for the show ring. But even if you only use dog grooming clippers to maintain your dog's hair and send him to the groomer every six months or so for a complete workover, you can save hundreds of dollars.
Dog grooming is important for a healthy dog and to keep him looking and smelling good too. All dogs have an inclination to roll in something smelly if given the chance. Dog hair is, to some extent, self-cleaning – but not to the point that your dog will never need a bath! There will be times when you need to do some dog grooming and also bath your dog – so you should have got your puppy used to the process as early as possible. If you have a long-haired breed you will need to regularly groom your dog – less so for the short or smooth coated breeds. Let's look at the different types of dog grooming you may have to do, according to breed, and then look at how to go about bathing your dog.
