Dog grooming tips
If you do not have any routine set than its perfectly fine. You can start small.
BATHING YOUR DOG
You don’t have to bathe your dog daily. Expert says once a week is fine. Use the shampoo which is formulated for dogs only. Avoid using the regular shampoo.
BRUSHING YOUR DOG
It depends on the growth of the hair of your dog has. If your dog has longer hair than you need to do it daily otherwise once a week or twice a month is fine. It will also help you to keep your house clean and you will not find dog hair everywhere.
CHECK FOR TICKS
Its also the a part of brushing. Check for ticks as you brush. Prefer using a rubber brush and also use grooming spray which makes the brushing easy.
If your dog not really active than you need to trim its nails on regular basis. Train your dog from very young age so they don’t feel fear doing it. Its a tough job to do and if you are not really comfortable with it than we recommend to take them to professionals. Use a clipper which is designed for this purpose avoid using toenail clippers. A rotatory trimmer will be slow but an good option. And do it at a quiet place so your dog does not jump when it hears some noise or someone visits.
