 The Importance Of Pet Grooming  

When grooming your dog, it is important for you to be firm but gentle at the same time. Being firm with your dog does not mean being harsh, but to let the dog know who the leader of the pack is. Most dogs respond to simple commands such as sit and stay. 

Pet grooming is important because it reduces your allergies, while keeping your pet clean and dander-free. This is particularly important during winter and fall season, when you and your pet spend more time at home or other closed environments.

With frequent pet grooming, you will be able to remove dead hair, making your pet look better because only health hairs are left behind. It also reduces any odor, improve air circulation to achieve better coat and keep lice away from your pet. Grooming your pet can stimulate blood flow and lymphatic system, proving your pet with healthier coat and overall health.

Aside from physical benefits that are achieved from pet grooming, you and your pet will also create a special bond because of physical interaction. Because of this, your pet will be more comfortable in your hands, while providing him or her with needed emotional support. In addition, you will get to know your pet, allowing you to know what areas he or she dislikes or likes to be touched. Also, you will examine whether your pet has a health problem when he or she flinches when you touch a certain area.

The most important benefit of grooming your pet is that you can spot health problems, such as skin disease, hair loss, lumps and other problems not visible to the naked eye. You can also examine if your pet has mites, fleas, ticks or worms Ė all of which can become deadly when left untreated.

Four Basic Pet Grooming Tips

When you have no idea how to perform pet grooming, you can follow these four easy steps to prevent potential sickness for both you and your pet. The most important procedure in grooming a pet is to shampoo him or her regularly to cleanse the skin and hair, removing unwanted allergens and dander. This will ensure an allergy-free environment for you and your family.

Make sure to use a specially formulated shampoo for pets because animals have different skins than people and using your shampoo may irritate your petís skin. Also, make sure to use a conditioner every time you shampoo your pet. This will reduce allergen accumulation on your petís coat.

You should use some kind of conditioning spray to keep tangles off and reduce possible build-up of allergens. Lastly, ensure that you brush or comb your pet regularly. This will help in air circulation, keeping your pet free from allergens and dander.

Routine pet grooming serves three major purposes:  First, it keeps your dog's skin, coat, teeth, gums, and nails in a healthy state.  Second, it helps you detect any signs or symptoms of problems or abnormalities.  Third, grooming allows you to spend quality time with your pet which helps create a special bond between you and your dog.  It is therefore important to establish a daily or weekly grooming ritual that both you and your dog can enjoy.  If your dog refuses to be groomed, command him to sit and stay. In addition, grooming should always involve a reward for your dog
