Choosing the right shampoo to groom your dog is a matter of trial and error as you find a product that works well for you and that doesn't irritate your dog's skin. Some pets have more sensitive coats and skin than others, so be sure to pay attention to how your dog reacts after a bath. If your dog is licking or biting excessively at himself or itching a lot after the bath, the shampoo you have chosen may be the culprit. Opting for mild or organic shampoos is a good way to avoid your dog having an allergic reaction or other problems caused by a bath, so try to find products in this category when selecting your dog grooming products. Some shampoos and grooming products offer special features that can help to make your dog safe. For instance, it is possible to get shampoos that contain natural materials to deter fleas and ticks. When used over time, your dog may become more resistant to these harmful pets.
Basic Dog Grooming Instructions. Since grooming your dog is such an important part of your responsibility as an owner, you should not only have a sound and regular routine, but you should have the proper knowledge, brushes, shampoos, clippers and other necessary equipment. With correct dog grooming instructions, you can help keep you dog healthy and clean. An important part of dog grooming, even before you begin thinking about baths, is simply brushing your dog's coat on a regular, preferably daily, basis. Brushing helps remove dirt and pests, untangles knots and spreads the natural oils evenly through the coat. Each dog is different and you should consult your vet or a grooming expert on the proper type of brush to use based on your dog's breed. You should brush thoroughly, including her stomach, behind her legs and her ears.
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.)
Rinses, Sprays and Conditioners. Shampoo is only the first step in most good grooming regimens, so you will need to look into other dog grooming supplies as well. Grooming spray, a rinse, and a conditioner can all be used to help keep your dog both looking and feeling his best. Conditioners and rinses can also help to enrich the dog's skin and coat and make it feel smooth and shiny. Remember, a clean dog has a better chance of being a healthy dog, and you can also identify any problems such as mange, demodex or fleas early on when you are bathing and grooming your dog regularly.
Will Cooperation be an Issue During Dog Grooming? Depending on your pet, cooperation may be an issue and a major obstacle. Remember not to get frustrated, maintain eye contact and offer reassurance as you groom. Grooming in contained places will prevent fido from blowing the coop and you chasing a sopping wet dog around your house or yard. Professional groomers utilize dog grooming nooses and leads to aide in the grooming process
Dog grooming clippers can be found at pet specialty stores and some general retailers. A dog who has thick, long, or curly hair will be more difficult to groom at home. With these dogs, expect your grooming to be more utilitarian than chic. But grooming your dog at home can benefit more than just your wallet. Some dogs are afraid of groomers and find the experience very stressful. Grooming these dogs at home should be easier on a high-strung dog or one who is easily intimidated.
The types of dog grooming products that you need are going to depend upon your dog. Every dog, whether he's a hunting dog who loves to roll in the dirt or a little princess laptop who simply takes a prance down the street, will need some basic grooming. This will include a periodic bath, as well as brushing, dental care and ear cleaning. Some dogs, however, need more grooming than others.
