Nail Clipping & Dremeling
When your dog walks on a hard surface, can you hear his nails? If so, then it may be time to bring him in to the dog groomer. Here at The Dirty Dog, we promise a fun, safe and reassuring environment where your pooch can get a dog nail trim with a minimum of fuss.
Many dogs don't like to have their feet touched. Other dogs don't mind the touching, but they sure don't enjoy having their nails trimmed. Pet parents probably like the nail clipping process even less than their furry companion. That's because many dogs don't hold still for it, which just makes it easier to accidentally "quick" your dog, causing a painful injury
NAILS AND A DOG'S HEALTH
The average dog needs a bath every three weeks to one month. Depending upon the season, the breed of your dog and your dog's activities, a bath may be required more or less often. For instance, basset hounds tend to have an oily coat which might make more frequent bathing a good idea. On the other hand, weimaraners and beagles do well with fewer baths thanks to their shorter hair. Certain dogs with thick coats like golden retrievers and malamutes may also benefit from fewer baths so that they can retain more of the natural oils in their coat that protect them from the environment.
Of course, you may elect to ask for a dog bath on a more frequent basis if your dog gets smelly in between visits to the groomer or if he spends a lot of time exploring in nature. Ultimately, your dog groomer can help you keep your furry companion happier and healthier by providing a wonderful bathing experience.
