How Often Should Your Dog Go For Grooming ?

Hello dear dog owners!
To answer the above question, your dog needs to go for a bath every week, regardless short or long hair. Basic grooming is best every 2 to 3 weeks and full grooming should be around 4 to 6 weeks. Puppies are advised to finish their rounds of vaccinations before heading to the groomer’s.

Basic grooming includes shower, blow-drying, ear cleaning, nail clipping, paw pad shaving, anal shaving, belly shaving (applicable for all breeds)

Full grooming includes basic grooming and scissoring/clipping of whole dog (applicable for dog with lots of tangles and long-hair breeds)

If you have breeds such as poodles, schnauzers, maltese, yorkies, schnauzers or other breeds that fur grows long, you will need to send your dog for grooming frequently as mentioned above. While at home, you must take care of their fur so that they are tangled-free. It will be very difficult for the groomer to brush through every knots and have your dog be groomed and ready quickly. If there are too many knots in the dog’s fur, the only choice is the clip the fur short depending how deep are the knots. Your dog is suffering if their fur is tangled because the fur is pulling their skin and this may cause skin problems. Also, always check through your dog’s skin for ticks and fleas to avoid any parasite infestation in your home.

Be sure to select the right professional groomers. At first glance, the pricing will provide an indicator if professional groomers are hired by the pet grooming center. At the end of the day, you may judge by yourself by looking at how the grooming turn out to be versus the price paid. Always do your own research using the media social to view the grooming portfolio and make the right choice.

If your dog goes for grooming frequently, it will benefit them in the long run. Frequent visits will lessen their anxiety and they will eventually feel comfortable during grooming sessions.
