How often should I have my dog groomed?

» This question is best to answered with a consultation. Most smaller dogs require a full service groom every 6-8 weeks. If you are diligent about your at home grooming you can postpone your groom for another two weeks. There also is the option of a bath and tidy service which will extend the life of your funky haircut.

How often should I have my dogs nails cut?

» Dogs toenails should be done approximately every 6-8 weeks. It also depends on the age of your dog and the amount of walking on rough surfaces. It is important to keep your dogs nails trimmed as the quick will grow closer and it will make it difficult to shorten your dogs nails.

Should I bathe my dog in between his grooming appointment?

» It is important to realize that dogs have natural oils that need to remain on their bodies to balance there skin ph. Bathing your dog weekly is not necessary. If you choose to bath your dog a few times before your next grooming appointment make sure you brush them prior to the bath and remove any excess undercoat or matts. The water will tighten the coat and make your pet really uncomfortable…..or experience a very close shave!

When and how do Groomers check your dogs anal glands?

» Anal glands are two small sacs located laterally beside the rectum. Pet Groomers are only trained to express them externally. If you are having serious problems with anal glands a veterinarian can express them internally. I as a vet tech and certified professional groomer just check them as inexperienced groomers may rupture the anal glands from applying to much pressure in all the wrong places. Checking the anal glands at your regular grooming sessions should be enough for an average healthy pet.
