There are many benefits to having your dog professionally groomed. These benefits result in not only a happy dog, but a healthy dog, too.
You don’t want to wait until your dog is matted and miserable, so it’s best to get your pups on a regular grooming schedule of every 4-6 weeks, and start them at a young age.
One of the major parts of a professional grooming is brushing. Brushing removes dead hair, eliminates odors, keeps them cooler, cleaner, reduces itchiness, and also stimulates blood flow.
Regular grooming helps to keep on top of any health issues as well. Sometimes being a groomer means being a detective; groomers make many discoveries on dogs that were not seen before such as fleas, ticks, hot spots, ear infections, and even lumps (which have proven to be life saving).
Groomers have many tools that the typical dog owner doesn’t have that will help to get your pups hair cut just right, or to get out all that unwanted undercoat that’s been shedding off your dog. If you see a happy dog prancing down the street chances are they were just groomed! hey LOVE all the attention they get right after they’ve been groomed, and just think how much lighter they must feel.
Bringing your dog to doggie day care regularly also has many benefits. When you meet a well socialized puppy, they most likely attend doggie day care at least two times a week. Dog day care offers a puppy invaluable social skills to help them properly interact with other dogs in a variety of situations. Dogs learn very well from other dogs and it’s amazing to watch them teach each other.
Many dog owners work long hours these days or have very busy lives and are unable to exercise and/or socialize their dogs. They often feel guilty that they just don’t have enough time to devote to their beloved friend. Day care can help to socialize your dog, but is also a fun and safe outlet for all their energy so at the end of your busy day your pup is just happy to see you.
We hear all the time about how tired our customers' dogs are and this helps to prevent the guilt from leaving their dog home alone.
It’s also helpful in preventing destructive behavior patterns and keeps your dog from demanding your attention to go for that long walk in the middle of winter or on that hot summer day. Doggie day care offers a safe place for your dog while you are busy at work and provides the best of both worlds for dogs and owners alike.
Every dog will benefit from dog training, and so will their owners of course. Dog training should be fun and positive for both the owner and the dog. Personalized training is the best so you and your dog can successfully learn to communicate with each other.
The biggest obstacle between dog owners and successful ownership is a language barrier. Obedience class is where you and your dog learn a common language. Once that language has been established, the sky is the limit as to what you and your dog can accomplish together. Having a trained dog requires commitment and practice!
The old adage "practice makes perfect" goes a long way in helping to attain the best relationship with your dog, a relationship which is built on clear communication, respect, and trust. Dogs need structure and want to learn what is expected of them, because all they want to do is please you.
