Step-by-step photographs explain how the right equipment is used correctly to produce a perfectly groomed dog. Tips from years of grooming both pet dogs and show dogs are shared in the pages of this new book. Providing people with the knowledge and encouragement to carry out grooming procedures themselves is a vital part of responsible dog ownership. Also importantly, correct grooming procedures include essential health checks such as feeling for lumps and sore areas and checking eyes, ears and coat. Grooming also plays a part in cementing a loving bond between owner and dog. Part one of Grooming Your Dog is an introduction covering care and information on skin and coat, diet allergies, parasites, matting, moulting and coat changes due to ageing and neutering. The book makes it clear which grooming tools and equipment should be used and how. Arrows are used over pictures to explain which way to brush. A diagram explains safe nail clipping and another gives the commonly used names for parts of the dogs coat. In the final part of the book, the author shares his valuable professional parlour Tips helping people avoid, and deal with, common pit falls of home grooming. A useful double page schedule recommends a routine to cover all aspects from bathing to teeth and worming. The schedule details how often each procedure should be carried out over a 12 month period to make an excellent reference for years to come.
