Upon becoming a pet owner, a common question asked is how often your dog should be groomed. The answer really depends on your dog. Dogs with quick growing hair, or skin folds that require constant cleaning will need more attention than will other dogs. As a rule, every 4-6 weeks seems to be sufficient for maintaining coat health. The best way to determine how often your dog needs groomed is to take it to a professional dog groomer. They will have years of experience with a broad range of breeds, hair and skin types and will be able to give you a schedule that works for you and your dog’s needs.
There are several things that you can do at home to make sure your dog stays clean between grooming, including wiping out eyes and ears, brushing your dog’s hair at least 3 times a week, and checking paws and nails for breaks or foreign objects. While these things are helpful, there are times when a professional dog grooming service is needed. If your dog does not like his nails trimmed, for instance, it is better to leave that job for a professional staff that has the knowledge and tools for the job. Also, it can be a messy job trying to keep up with seasonal shedding.

While the idea of a warm, bubble filled bath sounds like something we all wish we had more time for, our dogs do not often share the same sentiment. The need for a bath is usually known when they begin to stink and their coat begins to feel dirty, and appear dull. As owners we like our pets to smell and feel fresh and clean, but many dogs have no problem with being stinky and would rather do anything other than taking a bath.
Los Angeles Dog Daycare has come up with 5 tips to help you with your dog's bath.
Dog grooming may entail ribbons, bows, and hours of blow drying for some pampered pooches, but it’s about much more than keeping your dog’s appearance in competition form. It’s also about maintaining your dog’s hygiene and physical health. In fact, there are a myriad of benefits associated with being a well-groomed dog, including:
Any quality dog groomer will be well-trained in the best and safest techniques to remove dead skin and hair from your dog, resulting in improved air circulation and a polished coat. Depending on your experience and your dog’s temperament, you may be able to groom him yourself. Many dog owners, however, prefer to avoid the mess and frustration by choosing to leave the grooming to the professionals. Regardless of who holds the clippers, grooming is an important aspect in maintaining the appearance of your dog’s coat and should be done regularly.
