How To Know When It's Time For Dog Grooming

Grooming is an essential part of ensuring your dog lives and happy, healthy, and playful life.

Many groomers wish their pet owners knew that grooming is not just about making sure your dog has a nice haircut.

Proper grooming, in fact, can lead to early detection of skin problems and other health concerns.

Some dogs do sport the shaggy look because it is appropriate for their particular breed.

However, even dogs with naturally long hair need a good grooming to weed out unhealthy hair and be checked for skin problems.

If you own a dog and are wondering, “when is the right time to take your dog to a groomer?”, then here is a helpful guideline:

  • When the fur of a dog gets tangled and matted, the fur actually loses the ability of what it is intended to do which is kept cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Plus, matted hair attracts a lot of dirt that will make your dog appear un-cared for.
  • Insect infestation is not uncommon for dogs that go too long without a proper bath and brushing.Ticks and fleas are harmful to your dog and regular grooming can prevent their over-taking in your dog’s fur.
  • Nails on active dogs are often trimmed from running around on hard surfaces and pavement outside. However, nails should be looked after to avoid infections. Nails that are too long can be painful to walk on and hurt the dog’s feet.

Grooming comes with a bit of pampering and close attention that your dog may be seeking.

For many dogs, grooming is a very pleasurable experience where they are the star of the show.

If your dog is in need of grooming and even if you’re not 100% sure it’s necessary, give D’Tails Grooming a call today.
