  • What is dog grooming?

    Grooming is a key part of keeping your dog’s coat and skin healthy. Brushing and combing stimulate circulation in your dog’s skin and help keep fur clean between baths. Bathing gets rid of the dirt, and depending on the soap used, bathing can moisturize, relieve itching, or kill parasites, like fleas and ticks.

  • How can I groom my dog at home?

    Brushing should be a part of every dog owner’s routine to keep the fur in excellent condition. Ideally, brush your dog’s coat at least twice a week. Choose tools to match your dog’s coat, such as a wide-toothed brush for longer, coarse fur and a narrow-toothed brush for shorter fur.

  • How often should I groom my dog?

    You should typically brush your dog twice a week and bathe it once a month. Frequent brushing removes loose debris and distributes natural oils from your dog’s skin throughout its coat. Monthly bathing usually prevents fur from getting smelly without overdrying a dog’s skin.

  • What is included in dog grooming?

    Some basic services to expect from a professional dog groomer include bathing, brushing, and trimming fur. Groomers generally make sure to remove matted fur and clip fur into breed-specific styles. Groomers also clean ears and clip a dog’s nails when needed.

  • Does dog grooming include nail clipping?

    While dog groomers typically trim nails, it isn’t necessarily included with a basic grooming session. Every groomer is different, and while one may include it, another groomer may charge an extra fee. Some other additional services groomers offer include expressing anal glands, brushing teeth, skin therapy regimens, and flea treatments.

  • How long does dog grooming take?

    Expect a full grooming session to take two or three hours. If your dog has thick fur, it could take even longer. Making sure your dog’s coat is dry is one detail that takes extra time. It’s important that the coat be completely dry to prevent hot spots, known as acute moist dermatitis.

  • Should I bathe my dog before grooming?

    You rarely need to bathe your dog before taking it to a groomer. However, it may depend on the groomer’s personal preferences. For example, if you’re taking your dog in for a detailed style, your groomer may prefer that the basic grooming steps be done ahead, such as bathing and brushing out matted fur.
