Grooming

grooming-puppyIf you want your dog to look and feel its best, proper grooming should be a part of your regular schedule.

Grooming isn’t just about looking good, with a bath, new haircut and pedicure; it’s also important for your dog’s health. Proper hygiene, nail trimming and dental care all help keep a canine healthy.

Of course, effectively grooming a dog isn’t an easy task. It takes a well-trained, patient professional to clean, comb and trim. Our skilled groomer can make your dog look fabulous, and importantly, spot any issues that might need further care.

So why not treat your special friend to a day at the spa! At Dog Dayz, your dog is pampered in a private room in a stress free environment…no other dogs running around and one on one with your groomer.

Does Your Dog Need Grooming?

There are many signs that it’s time for grooming. Keep an eye out for:

  • A matted, tangled and/or dirty coat
  • Hair that’s too long
  • Excessive shedding
  • Excessive scratching of skin
  • Long, sharp nails
  • Rheumy, watery eyes

Setting a Grooming Routine

Like feeding and walking, grooming should be a part of your dog’s routine. Yes, with busy lives, it can be a challenge to add something else to the schedule. But your dog will thank you for the extra care and love !

Accounting for your dog’s personal grooming needs, our groomer can help you establish a routine that includes regular grooming and ongoing maintenance between sessions.
