Dog Groomings Perth
requires time, patience and even a bit of a challenge. Let's start by defining what grooming is and where it fits into your dog training regimen.
Grooming your dog starts with trimming his nails; it's just like trimming yours. After you see that they are in proper order, you can proceed to doggy de-stressing through some basic nail care such as clip nail, apply nail clippers and apply scotch guard (rub in a little scotch and then wipe them off). You can also use a fine dry brush, usually provided with the brushes with the doggy grooming kit you purchased, to brush the underside of the dog's ears and avoid tangles.
After completing the basic cleaning and sterilizing activities, you will want to get on to the more advanced aspects of doggy grooming: shampooing, bathing, clipping and brushing. Always practice safe and proper dog grooming practices as mentioned in your training manuals or as your house rules. In this way, the health of your dog is always in good hands.
Before doing any dog grooming, you should always have all the necessary information that you need such as labels for shampooers and cleaners. You should never use an open container of liquid shampoo because it can cause short term skin allergies or problems. You should always be sure that you're using an open container, because some of the shampoos on the market contain hidden ingredients that can damage your dog's skin. Be careful when you're handling the shampoo as it can get on your dog's paws or skin and cause irritation.
During the basics of basic grooming, all you need to do is take off the dog's coat using the scissors or clippers. Once you have taken it off, you need to clean the areas you've been working on. Be sure to rinse it thoroughly with water and put in the wash basin to remove any soap residue and excessive hair. Teeth and gums are the most common areas to be cleaned. You can make doggy tooth brushing part of your routine by just brushing them on a regular basis.
Bathrooms and water puddles are also parts of dog grooming that you must learn to do correctly. Be sure to brush or floss them thoroughly.
The last stage of grooming is clipping. As with any other process, a dog groomer should always be the best judge of their pet's needs. If they are not feeling well, they should be seen by the vet.
Dog grooming does not just involve clipping the nails but also includes shaving the hair around the neck, ears and eyes. It is always important to check for any parasites such as fleas, ticks and other small creatures that may be living under the dog's fur. If there are none, you can proceed to trimming the coats.
Grooming must always be done according to the direction in which you see fit and within the limits of your dog's safety. With proper training, a dog groomer
can keep their reputation as the professional of the profession.
While the grooming process might be tedious for you, for your dog, it's really worth it. He will eventually become a comfortable and independent pet when he gets used to his hair being trimmed, brushed and cleansed.
Lastly, if you have an untrained or inexperienced dog groomer, keep in mind that you must take your dog to a vet once a year. A routine grooming treatment will prevent your dog from getting any sickness or any related issues that might be related to dog grooming.
