Pet hygiene is essential for human and animal health and wellness. Bathing makes an important stage of a dog’s grooming routine and it can be performed weekly or monthly, depending on the case. Water and shampoo are bliss and any dog grooming bath is a great opportunity to trim nails, clean eyes and ears and brush the hair. If you don’t have basic grooming skills or you prefer professional grooming services, a local salon should should solve the problem for you. While hair brushing ought to be performed regularly, there is no absolute rule for bathing.

If you accustom your dog with bathing when it’s still a puppy, a dog grooming bath will always be a source of fun. When the animal is young, it is more playful and open to new experiences; consequently, start a bathing routine as early as possible. If you adopt an older animal and you can’t handle the dog grooming bath on your own, it’s your duty to have it done. There are groomers that provide dog grooming and bathing for lower prices when combined than they would charge if the two operations were handled separately. Depending on the hair thickness and the pet size, you can pay up to 0 or even more for very large breeds.

High-maintenance dogs require great skill for dog grooming bath and only an experienced groomer will be able to handle heavy coats for instance. The advantage of professional services is that all sorts of bumps, lumps and even injuries may pass unnoticed by the owner under the thick coat, and the sooner they get detected, the better for the dog’s health. Don’t let your pet’s hair mat because mat removal is painstaking and costly. Moreover, it tries the dog’s patience really hard when it has to wait during this delicate procedure. There are even cases when coat shaving is required for mat removal.

To conclude, do not neglect the importance of a dog grooming bath. You can find out what shampoo or cleaning product to use by asking for the vet’s advice. And don’t overlook the importance of coat drying, given the fact that there are few chances of blowing it dry. Consequently, try to always adapt grooming decisions to your pet’s preferences and individuality!
