I want to keep this page very simple and easy for you to access. I am listing a series of downloadable PDF’s that I believe will help you in the areas of need along with guides for grooming, health, nutrition, and training, etc. Some of these are just basic guides for first-time owners and not a bad idea to read on the experienced side (gold nugget or two). Others will be more extensive in context. These pdf’s will always be added here under the title of the guides, so come back often to view new additions. Also, follow new updates on the Facebook page @doggroomerslove
If you feel you need help with a topic matter, let me know and I will write it for you and list it here for others to see.
Now, since you are reading this, you must have a dog and I probably don’t have to tell you that they can be a lot of work, but really, no more than taking care of ourselves. Proper care is a good and healthy diet, plenty of exercise, lots of love, and regular visits to your veterinarian for vaccinations. So grooming is an important factor in responsible pet ownership to keep your canine in tip-top condition.
Grooming is more than just bathing your dog’s fur and giving it a trim. It’s head-to-toe spruce up and it’s the perfect opportunity to make sure that everything looks clean and healthy and for you to learn what is normal for your pet.
Remember, grooming does have many aspects to it. Washing, brushing, trimming their hair, nail clipping, cleaning their eyes and ears. Sound familiar? The good thing is you don’t have to do everything at the same time. Only do what is needed, when it is needed. Just use good ole common sense, but always be cognizant of how your dog looks and feels (health). Just like a child, they do need care and looking after and if you want to have a family member (your dog), then be diligent. Please!
And although some pet owners opt to leave grooming up to the professionals, it’s a task that is not as hard as you may think and it offers a valuable bonding opportunity between you and your pet.
I believe very strongly with that statement and have had friends I tutored in-home grooming of their dog and have been told there was an actual difference in how their dog acted and responded. That is why dogs make great best friends. They have the ability to feel and react to kindness.
Here are helpful guides that you can use through the steps of the grooming process to some training techniques.
