There has been an amazing trend in dog accessories over the last few years. Just look around when you go out and you are bound to see someone’s precious pooch all decked out in their latest fashion accessories purchased by their owner. It is not just pet accessories that are popular but pet grooming is a high priority as well.
Dog accessories have become a mainstay of everyday pet care in today’s society. At one time it was considered to be a luxury to have your pet groomed professionally but these days it’s considered routine. The benefits of a regular grooming schedule, whether it be at a professional groomer or at home, are quite beneficial for both you and your furry friend.
There are a couple of main things that are important to consider when addressing your pet’s hygienic needs. The first thing I’d like you to consider is that the importance of grooming is not just aesthetic in nature. Grooming is an important part of keeping them healthy. Some of the main items consist of bathing, brushing, flea and tick treatment, nail trimming, cleaning ears, teeth cleaning, worming and hot spots to name a few. However, it’s important to note that you are the one who spends the most quality time with your pet. So it’s up to you to notice changes in your dog’s behavior, coat or general health and address those needs.
Each of these task, time and product used will depend on your individual dog’s needs and requirements. For example, an animal with long hair will require brushing and bathing more frequently than a short haired animal. It is however important to realize that every pooch should have at least a quick brush several times a week. This keeps their coat clean, shiny and healthy, as well as, helps with the shedding, hair loss and dirt being tracked into your home.
Many people are uncomfortable choosing their accessories and doing their own grooming. If that’s the case you can either take them to a professional groomer or your local veterinarian. Another option may be to take a grooming course where they will teach you how to choose the proper accessories for your specific precious pup and how to groom them properly. I would encourage you to at least do some grooming with as it helps you to bond with them. Another great source for tips and information is from your personal veterinarian. It’s important to develop a good relationship with your vet.
Obviously buying the correct accessories and keeping your pup groomed are important for their health but I want to point out that when you are spending time grooming you are also spending quality time and bonding with them. Some people will say that you are spoiling your pup but I believe you can never give too much attention to your children or your animals. So groom away and give them your best. A spoiled dog is a happy hound!
