DIY Dog Grooming Tutorials + Tips For Dealing With Shedding, Stains And Odors

Yes, some dog breeds require more attention to grooming than others, but all dogs require some very basic grooming in order to maintain healthy teeth, ears, coat, skin, nails, and eyes.

So, just because you don’t have a long-haired dog or a dog with an overbite, don’t think that you don’t have to care for your dog’s fur or brush your dog’s teeth.

Even though your dog’s nails will naturally wear down a bit if he plays outside a lot or goes on a lot of walks, this doesn’t mean that you don’t have to trim your dog’s nails regularly.

Likewise, a dog’s ears and eyes must remain free of debris, allergens, and mites in order to avoid issues with hearing and eyesight.

You can choose professional dog grooming, or you can do it yourself.
