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.
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.
In addition to regular brushing, you should also make sure you keep your dog's nails trimmed–an often overlooked aspect of dog grooming. You will probably want to do this monthly although it will depend on your dog's habits and activities. Make sure you have proper trimmers made for dogs and do not cut them too short. You'll want to stop trimming just before you reach the quick and don't forget to get your dog's dewclaw. Following these routine dog grooming instructions will help maintain your dogs coat and nails but should also be supplemented with a bath.
