The first home beauty treatments should be short. Beginning with a 5- or 10-minute session will allow your furry friend to adjust to this new experience.
Keep Tangles at Bay
One simple and enjoyable treatment is the brushing of your dog’s coat. This may need to be done daily if he or she has a long or easily matted coat. Short, smooth fur may only need to be brushed weekly.
Keep the bath sessions to every few months unless your pal is truly dirty, and use appropriate pet shampoo. This will prevent skin irritation.
Watch the Nails
One tricky aspect of canine care is the clipping of the nails. This may be best left to professionals, but if you would like to do it yourself, purchase high-quality dog clippers, and follow the directions faithfully. Note that dog nails contain a vein that can easily be nicked if the cutting is not done carefully.
