Taking care of your dog includes keeping it clean, healthy and happy. Grooming makes sure that a dog’s coat is manageable, helps with blood circulation and prevents skin problems. Here are some dog grooming tips to help you keep your pet in top condition:
- Check your dog all over for any changes, such as lumps, cuts or fleas.
- Choose the right kind of brush for your dog’s coat.
- Don’t miss the feet, ears and tail.
- Use a mild dog shampoo that won’t cause itching.
- Make sure all of the shampoo is gone and nothing is left to irritate the skin.
