The number of times you’ll bathe your dog will depend on their lifestyle, coat condition, and health. If you need to remove mud or dirt immediately, ensure that you’re using dog shampoo. Human shampoos can irritate and cause hair breakage. Don’t forget to check the label—some shampoos require dilution before use!
Dog nail clippers – Your choice
You can absolutely use nail clippers at home to care for your dog’s paw. Younger dogs will wear down their nails naturally from activity. However, if you own a senior dog, you’ll need to clip them more often. If your dog is not comfortable with nail clipping, you’ll need a helping hand. Otherwise, you can save this task for your next dog grooming appointment.
Grooming Table – Skip
While you don’t have to invest in an expensive grooming table, you also don’t want to cheap out in this department. The last thing you want is for the table to collapse mid-groom! Ensure you always groom your dog on a solid surface. One that can handle the weight of your dog. You’ll also want to ensure that you can attach a grooming arm to the table to keep your dog in place. If they’re fidgeting, they can potentially fall off the table. It’s best not to risk it!
