Are you tired of paying the ridiculous prices your local dog groomer charges for your pup's monthly grooming session? If you are, why not learn how to groom him yourself? It's a great way to save money and bond with your pup. Once you learn how to properly groom your dog, the two of you can turn it into a fun way to spend time together. The only real question you might end up asking yourself, is why on earth you didn't do this sooner? It might take the two of you are little time to master this skill, but once you have mastered it, grooming your little pooch should take less than half an hour.
You can bet your little dog likes to look his best, especially when you take him out in public. But, at the same time, chances are good he won't like having your work on him using clippers and shears. Your pup may see them as scary at first, but with a little time and patience, he will get used to them. One thing you can do to help your pup remain calmer during his monthly grooming sessions is to take him for a nice long walk first. This will tire him out and help him calm down. Be sure you have a nice supply of treats on hand for this training.
Every time you groom your pup, you want to end up with him looking his best. Go slowly, work with your pup instead of against him, and relax. You can make the whole process go smoothly the more relaxed you are. Your pup will pick up on your vibes for better or worse. It won't take long before your pup looks forward to your monthly grooming sessions.
