Brushing your dog is a great way to spend quality time with your favourite furry friend. Regular brushing keeps dogs’ hair clean and removes dead hair and tangles while stimulating blood flow. There will be certain areas that are more sensitive for your dog, so make sure to brush these spots more gently. Begin at the head and brush in the direction of hair growth, paying particular attention to the flanks and legs, which are the most likely to be matted. Brushing also gives you a chance to look for any health issues. By moving the hair, you can get a good look at the skin beneath to check for signs of fleas or ticks, or other skin problems.
Most dogs don’t like to have their nails trimmed. Playing with their paws will get them accustomed to having their paws touched, so that it will be easier when it comes time to use the dog nail clippers.
Dog bathing can be frustrating for both you and your pet, but it should be a regular part of grooming, as it can help prevent disease and infection. It can also keep shedding to a minimum. Dreamland Pet has a Self-Groom Dog Wash that provides everything you need to bathe your dog, including brushes, dog shampoo, a dryer and towels. This is ideal for people who live in apartments, or for anyone who doesn’t want to have a mess to clean up at home.
