Don’t you love going to the salon to get your hair trimmed? You get to relax – maybe even get a bit of pampering – and you feel great afterward, right? Haircuts promote healthy hair growth and stop the spread of split ends. Think about what a hair trim, aka grooming, can do for your dog.
There are many benefits to taking your dog to get groomed, from shorter hair to better health.
Not only will taking your dog to get groomed can save you a lot of time and hassle, a professional dog groomer knows all the tricks of the trade and has the right tools.
1) Better hygiene
Grooming will clean your dog and brush away the dead skin that builds up, which is what can lead to making our dogs have a bad odor. Grooming results in better hygiene and your dog will smell better once completed.
2) Overall health checks
When your dog is in for grooming, our well-trained staff will check for fleas and ticks. The groomer will thoroughly look over your dog and check for anything abnormal on the skin you might miss while brushing. Abnormalities we look for include lumps, skin issues, seeds, infection and injuries.
3) Nail and ear care
Sometimes nails can be overlooked by owners. The nails can often be hidden by fur and get long and uncomfortable to walk and stand on. A grooming session includes a nail trim and can bring simple comfort to the furry friend. Another aspect of our sessions that we look at is ear hair. If we see any, we will quickly pluck it right out, so air will flow through easily and avoid any infections. Routinely maintaining your pooch’s nails and ears can help keep them healthy for years to come.
4) Less shedding
When you take your dog to the groomer, they will be properly washed and brushed, which causes them to shed less, which will make less work for you! Wouldn’t it be nice to sweep up less fur from the floor and vacuum a little less often?
5) A good-looking dog
After a grooming session, your dog will look and feel better. (And likely so will you!) And for anxious dogs, it can also help them become less reluctant to be around other people and pets after a few visits.
As you can see, there are numerous benefits to keeping your dog groomed so your beloved pooch can look – and feel – their best. Call us today at 307-632-7367 to schedule your appointment today!
