DIY Guide: Comb and Trim Your Dog's Hair

Benefits of Home Grooming

Grooming your dog at home can save money and provide a great bonding experience between you and your pet.

Pre-Grooming Bath

Start with a good bath using a dog-specific shampoo. Wait for your dog to dry before starting the grooming process.

Grooming Location

Take your dog outside for grooming to avoid creating a mess indoors.

Grooming Tools

Prepare your grooming tools. You'll need a dog comb and a large pair of scissors.

Cutting and Combing

Start by cutting long hairs, then comb your dog's hair to check if more trimming is needed.

Post-Grooming Bath

Finish the grooming process with another bath and a cuddle to make it a positive experience for your dog.

Cleaning Tools

Always clean your grooming tools after use. This process applies to all dog breeds, though some may require more frequent grooming.
