Grooming and healthcare is an important part of a dog’s life and a vital task for its owner.

But what about if you’re a new dog guardian and have no idea where to start? 

Why not take a look at our complete guide to dog grooming in 6 easy steps.

1. Coat Type

Depending on your dog’s coat type you will need specific tools to groom him. So is he non-shedding, double coated, silky haired or does he have a self-maintaining coat?

If you are not sure then you can ask at the vets or a pet store when looking for grooming tools.

2. Your Grooming Kit

A good dog grooming kit will consist of a comb, brush, toothbrush and paste, nail clippers and some cotton wool or similar to clean out his eyes and ears.

Your house will turn into a dog beauty parlour one a month and we promise you’ll enjoy this trip to childhood.

3. Begin to Groom

Regardless of your dog’s age he should be groomed and handled every day, even if it’s just for ten minutes.

This will improve the bond between you, keep his coat and skin healthy and enable you to carry out essential health checks.
