The Brush and Comb Dance
Brushing your dog isn't just about making them look good; it's about keeping their coat healthy. Depending on your dog's fur type, choose the right brush and comb, and get into a routine. Short, daily sessions are better than long, infrequent ones.
Bath Time Fun
Bathing your dog can be a splashy affair. Use a dog-specific shampoo and ensure the water temperature is just right. Remember, not all dogs need frequent baths, so understand your dog's needs.
Nail Clipping: Not Just a Fashion Statement
Long nails can be painful and unhealthy for your dog. Learn the proper way to clip them or seek professional help if you're unsure. Make it a positive experience with lots of treats and praise.
Ear and Teeth – The Forgotten Frontier
Don't forget about ears and teeth. Regular checks and cleans can prevent health problems. Use dog-specific toothpaste for those pearly whites, and consult your vet on how best to clean your dog's ears.
