You may have read online articles suggesting that dogs need to be groomed from head to tail just once a month, but the truth is that there is no hard and fast rule to this. It’s true that dogs and cats do groom themselves every now and then, but it’s not really enough to keep your dog clean inside out. Regular professional dog grooming should be as much a routine for your pet as going for walks, enjoying play time or even sleeping!
Here are the 4 signs that your dog needs to be groomed:
Hair that generally looks unclean is a problem for dogs with naturally fine hair. Matted hair is often a safe haven for ticks, fleas and other pests. Did you know that unhealthy hair has a direct impact on the coat as well? Brushing regularly helps to promote blood circulation and remove dead hair that will be shed eventually, but it may not be enough.
Ticks and Fleas
Even the most aggressive grooming done by a dog on his body will not help him get rid of pests and fleas which have a canny way of feeding off the host without being detected. It’s likely that your pet may scratch himself more often than usual and even have small blood wounds on his body. The best way to get rid of such pests is by treating your canine pal to a professional tick and flea bath.
Just because you can’t spot the dirt with your naked eye, it doesn’t mean that it isn’t there! Dogs and cats love spending more time outdoors than indoors and love rolling around on the grass or in mud because they find it fun. The only way to ensure that the coat is 100% clean is by engaging the help of a mobile dog grooming service.
Long nails look great on human hands but definitely not on a dog’s paws. There’s always the possibility that dirt and gravel may get trapped under the nails and make even taking a few steps painful for your furry pal. Not to forget the bigger possibility that you may even have to buy new furniture for the house if those doggie nails aren’t trimmed anytime soon!
