Here at Well Groomed Dog we have an obsession for grooming and this blog is for those who might be interested in dog grooming as a career and pet parents who want to pamper their pooch at home.
Even if you have a short-haired dog who doesn’t need much maintenance you may still pick up some handy hints.
When you consider there are about 12 million dogs in the UK that’s a lot of hair to brush!
Grooming your dog at home could save you hundreds of pounds a year and give you the opportunity to bond with your pet while giving routine care and maintenance plus it isn’t too difficult as long as you know the basics and follow some simple tips.
As a dog owner, it’s important to make sure your pet is healthy and constantly gets the care he or she needs from regular veterinary check-ups to diet and daily walks.
The same goes for their coats – It’s vital that you groom your four-legged friend regularly.
Grooming your dog is one of the best ways to catch any health issues or unwanted visitors like fleas early, as well as enhancing your pup’s physical appearance.
It prevents matting hair, tangling, and excessive shedding which can be a real nightmare for some dog owners.
Grooming may seem like a luxury but it’s a real necessity that improves the overall health and well-being of your best friend.
It’s not just bathing and brushing either there’s looking after their nails, teeth and ears, do you know how to prevent tear stains, express a dog’s anal glands or create a scissor finish around the face?
Proper hygiene is just as essential for the pet itself as it is the owner but if you are not used to grooming your dog at home it can be difficult knowing where to start.
If you are just getting started with home-grooming, it can be a bit daunting – there’s so much information available and an endless array of products on the market that it can be tricky to know which ones to choose.

Our mission is to provide up-to-date information about various grooming products available in the market today and help you get your canine companion looking their very best.
