Know the Benefits of Dog Grooming Services
Posted by Country Inn Kennel and Cattery on August 6th, 2014
As a dog owner, you need to know basic, everyday grooming for your pets. But treating your dog to a professional grooming session at least twice every season is also good practice and is a worthy investment. Professional groomers can spot and solve grooming and grooming-related health problems that most pet owners overlook. The benefits of regular professional dog grooming goes way beyond a cleaner and a neat-looking coat—it helps keep your dog clean, comfortable, and safe from diseases. Here is a list of the most important benefits of professional dog grooming:
1. Professional grooming keeps dogs comfortable. Dog fur holds dead skin for insulation during the colder months. Come warmer days, the accumulated dead skin can become very irritating and may even cause skin problems. A professional groomer can loosen your dog’s coat and clearing up all the clumps to make him feel more comfortable and keep him cool. Dog claws can also be quite uncomfortable and even painful when left to grow longer than their normal length. It’s a good idea to bring dogs to a grooming professional to have their nails properly clipped on a regular basis, especially since domesticated pets don't have rough rocks and ground to trim their own growing nails.
2. Professional grooming ensures proper cleaning. This is especially true when dealing with long-haired and large dogs. Shaggier breeds are especially challenging to clean and bathe at home. Regular grooming may not be enough to keep dead skin and dander away from the coat. At home grooming may also cause health problems and even allergies to owners.
3. Check-up – Regular professional dog grooming also keeps your dog's health in check. Experienced pet care professionals are very keen in checking for any signs of health problems. Thoroughly checking the dog's coat, ears, skin, teeth, and eyes can help prevent health issues that you may overlook yourself. Professional dog groomers will even recommend you to good veterinarians should they find a developing health issue.
Unlike cats, dogs can’t groom themselves. This is why professional grooming services are necessary. Finding a good dog grooming service to take your pet on a regular basis is important. You want your pet to develop some kind of familiarity with the groomers so that he won’t be anxious every time you take him. Good grooming helps keep pests, discomfort, and health problems at bay.
