How frequently should you groom your dog?

Adding a furry friend to your family can create a lot of increased responsibility to your everyday schedule, along with a lot more love and companionship. Some of your additional responsibilities when adopting a dog is regular walks to keep your dog happy and healthy, vet visits, and making sure your dog is groomed as frequently as their breed requires. Grooming your dog is an imperative task to make sure your dog’s skin and fur are healthy and clean.

Every dog breed is different, they all require different grooming techniques and different grooming schedules. If you rescued your dog, you might not know exactly what breed your dog is, but the shelter you get them from, or your local vet should be able to tell you how quickly their fur will grow for any haircut needs. HydroDog professionally trained groomers are knowledgeable about the grooming techniques varied breeds require.

Keeping your dog clean and bathed not only helps you because you won’t be around a stinky dog, but your dog will thank you because, just like humans, when you look good, you feel good. Choosing a mobile dog grooming company may be the best choice for you if you have a senior dog, have a busy lifestyle, or just want the most convenient way to get your dogs groomed.

The time of year makes a significant impact on how often you should groom your dog. For example, in the spring and summer time you should bathe your dog more frequently. This is because your dog will be spending a lot more time outside and will pick up irritating allergens in their fur that could be tracked around your house. Outside playtime is the best, but it also comes with more frequent baths to ensure your dog is clean and ready for the next outdoor adventure.

If you are questionable about how frequently your dog should be groomed, you can call your local HydroDog Mobile Dog Groomer, talk to your vet, or even contact your local shelter for their opinion. HydroDog Mobile Dog Grooming can get your dog looking their best with a breed specific haircut, dog wash, and attentive care from our dog-enthusiast groomers.
