HOME GROOMING TIPS
No Rush Brush
Everyone loves a good hair brushing, especially your pets! Ideally you should be brushing their hair at least twice a week to remove any excess dirt, hair, tangles and mats but this also helps to distribute those wonderful natural oils which keep their skin and coats healthy. There is really no need to rush as processed, as your pet will greatly enjoy it especially after a meal. This way they are relaxed in stress-free but make sure you are too. Giving your pet a good long brushing is very therapeutic and you may also see some things like bruises or warts which you may not have noticed from a far. Brushing is even more essential for long haired and double-coated pets they shed seasonally. If you do this activity regularly it can lead to less hair on surfaces, less hair to vacuum, less lint rolling, and less chances of hearing that awesome hair ball being coughed up in the distance. NICE.
Shampoo The Pooch
The shampoos and conditioners us hooman use are too harsh for our furry friends, which is why it's important you purchase a pet friendly shampoo, not head and shoulders. If your pet has a certain skin condition like excessively oily or dry itchy skin, then ask your groomer, vet or pet store representative for a recommendation. This is one of the main tools to keeping your pet skin for healthy. Also don't forget, PLEASE KEEP OUT OF EYES!
Nurture The Nails
Maintaining the nails of your pet is probably one of the most difficult things you can do as a pet owner (especially dogs), weather be dog ,cat, bird, lizard, fish (just kidding :D )it doesn't matter. For our canine and feline friends this will definitely be something to do to keep your floors and furniture and pet happy. If your pet is not used to getting its nails clipped, it will take some time for them to trust you with their paws (BRING SNACKS!). We do not recommend using a grinder as these make lots of noise and will increase the stress level of your pet, so using pet specific nail clippers is the best tool for the job. Before cutting each nail one thing you want to do is find the quick. This is the pink area which is visible under the nail, it contains blood vessels and nerve ending. You do not want to cut this as it will cause severe pain and bleeding. Trimming your pet's nails will be a slow process in the beginning, so again, use treats and lots of praise to gain trust. Reward them starting with you holding their paws, then grabbing a specific nail, then rewarding after each successive clip of the nail. This will take some PRACTICE and PATIENCE.However we recommend leaving this to your groomer if your pet is extra fussy about having its nails groomed.
