The Benefits of Do-It-Yourself Grooming

Should you take your pet to a professional pet groomer? Should you groom your pet yourself?

Depending on your pet's needs, the answer might be to do both. If your pet's coat doesn't require the care of a professional pet groomer, you may be able to do it all yourself.

Benefits of Grooming Your Pet Yourself

Great Bonding Experience
There is nothing better than to have one-on-one time with your pet. While grooming him, you be able to observe how he reacts and communicates with you.

Your Pet Benefits Physically
Pet grooming distributes skin oils throughout your pet's coat, removes loose hair and irritants, and keeps hair free of dirt and tangels. You will also be able to better observe any changes to his body and spot possible health concerns, including lumps, bumps or presence of fleas or ticks.

Your Pet Benefits Emotionally
Grooming your pet provides him with regular sessions in which to experience pleasure at the hands of humans. With repeated gentle handling, this will help those pets to overcome trust issues they might have with humans.

You Save Money
It can get pretty costly at the professional groomers. Doing it yourself will only cost you the equipment needed for grooming. However, if your pet has a high-maitenance coat or you don't have the patience or time to groom your pet regularly, it might be better to get it done professionally.

Start Young
The younger you start, the easier it will be for your pet to become accustomed to being groomed. Make your pet grooming sessions positive by being gentle and by giving praises.
