All dogs benefit from grooming

All dogs benefit from being groomed.  It doesn't matter if your dog is a traditionally groomed breed such as a Bichon Frise or a bigger dog like Vic here.

Vic is a rescue dog with a lot of German Shepherd in his make up.  He is groomed everyday by his owners; even though he has short hair he sheds a lot.

A professional dog groomer has tools that the average dog owner doesn't.  Getting Vic's coat out took 2 hours and 5 different tools all this was without putting him in the bath.  Removing that dead hair left Vic with a lovely glossy coat.

There was more hair from grooming Vic than I had from clipping off Maddie yesterday.  There was enough to fill a couple of bags from Asda!  A short haired dog is just as hard to look after and hopefully Vic's owners won't have so much hair to vaccum up for a few weeks.  This time of year, when the dog is moulting it's hard work, having a professional groom will help cut down the loose coat and the housework.

Just look at how much hair I got out of Vic.  Being professionally grromed doesn't just get rid of all that itchy dead hair but also your groomer can pick up on any health or behavioural problems your dog may have and refer you to someone who can help with those.
