Is your pup's coat getting a bit on the shaggy side? Fed up with paying too much at the groomer's just to have them trim so little off you can't even tell they cut any at all? Fortunately, if she has one of those low maintenance, medium coats she'll only need to be brushed once a week and fully groomed once a month. Getting Fluffy to agree to being groomed at home is not going to be as hard as you think; it takes patience, perseverance, and a healthy supply of her favorite treats.
Most dogs tend to keep themselves groomed with tongue, teeth, and claws. They think they are doing a great job and don't mind the doggy odor. Your task, should you accept the responsibility, is to teach your dog that being fully groomed is a wonderful thing and to enjoy the process.
Grooming a medium haired dog is relatively simple. You should give a good brushing once a week and go all out on the fourth week by giving Fluffy the full spa treatment. Keep in mind you should be brushing her teeth daily, but at the very least do so every time you give her a bath.
