Dog Grooming Made (Somewhat) Easy!



Top: CH. Anderleigh The Patriot (co-bred/owned with Barbara Alexander) and his granddaughter,  Darby Creek's Custom-Made By Sherlyn (co-bred/owned with Sheri Clark.)

Many of you folks (and your dogs) enjoyed watching the Westminster dog show this week.  Maybe it inspired you to try and make your dog look (and feel) a little better.  If calling up a groomer isn't an option right now, here is an article I wrote to help you do-it-yourself.  You don't need a lot of fancy tools and your dog will enjoy the extra attention.  (Once again, sorry about the cut and paste.  The first two blocks should be read as one, then the second two blocks are as one.)  Also, the word "follicle"  should have been "cuticle."






If you have questions, just zap me an email and I will try to answer them.  

One of my readers, Melanie Bowen, has asked me to tell you about her blog to uplift people dealing with cancer, focused mostly on mesothelioma.  Here is her link http://www.mesothelioma.com/blog/.

Until next time,
Gale

Wow. The coat on that yorkie is amazing! No way I could stomach all that. Gracie is longer than she's ever been, but I hate all the brushing.
I wish I had the nerve to cut her nails. I do not.
What time can you be here to do it??!

The best part about setting a regular grooming routine for your dog is that it makes having a dog more enjoyable. Clean, well-groomed dogs are a pleasure to snuggle and cuddle up with, and the extra attention goes a long way toward establishing a life-long bond between you and your pet. While dog grooming may be challenging at times, and you may lose your patience sometimes stick with it. The benefits of dog grooming are well worth the effort!

Proper grooming is important for dogs for most of the same reasons that it is important for people.

Thankfully, as human beings, we are able to maintain good hygiene on our own. Unfortunately, your dog cannot practice good hygiene without a little help from you, the pet owner. Many pet owners opt to utilize professional grooming services to pamper their pet.

Proper dog grooming requires the proper knowledge, preparation, and equipment. It is extremely important to groom your dog as frequently as is recommended. Proper grooming is important for dogs for most of the same reasons that it is important for people. When your dog is clean and trimmed it feels happy, satisfied, and self-confident. Besides that, proper grooming will keep your dog healthy.
