Aside from keeping your dog looking great, regular grooming provides health benefits for both you and your pet. Grooming helps stimulate your pet’s skin and coat promoting healthy growth and also removes excess hair and debris. This helps your pet keep a glossy coat and can also reduce shedding around your home. Regular grooming sessions also give you the chance to thoroughly check your dog's skin and coat for irritation and parasites such as fleas and ticks.
It is important to comb or brush your pet to remove any knots and tangles prior to bathing. This allows for all loose hair, dirt and debris to be removed from the coat, and minimizes any matting that may occur. Grooming your pet prior to bathing can also help to calm your pet so that the bathing process is more enjoyable for both of you.
