Tools, Tips, and Tricks In Grooming Your Dog Grooming your dog is not an easy task because one must consider the type of hair the dog has, the style that you wish, and how your pet acts when being groomed. Essential before you begin dog grooming is becoming prepared to do so. If you are a beginner, this will be something you need a couple of hours to do so be sure to also consider the time allowed. Good quality clippers is the most important of all tools you will need. Simply not working as what you get with human hair clippers are plastic guards. Pin brush is great for long-haired dogs and helpful when brushing out tangles and mats. As it is easier for you and more comfortable for your dog, be sure they have a rubber base on the pins for flexibility. Great for finishing your dog grooming session while also giving your dog a great look is a slicker brush. Use a comb for the use on the face of your dog, making it an absolutely necessary tool to have. Hair dryer is good for drying long-haired dogs, but be sure to use a low warm setting as not to burn your dog. Giving them a bath should be done after fully brushing your dog. Bathing will be easier by doing this and your pet’s hair and skin will feel and look great when using proper shampoos and conditioners. I have found that the use of conditioner is so helpful when brushing your dog during the drying process, the hair dries faster and is easier to brush. Because many dogs are sensitive to the harsh chemicals in pet shampoos, consider the shampoo you use. All natural, oatmeal based, or hypoallergenic shampoos are the best to use.
