GROOMING YOUR DOG

GROOMING YOUR DOG

Author - Peter Young - Publisher - Interpet

A well-groomed dog is a pleasure to behold but, as this informative and inspirational book explains, grooming is not just about creating an immaculate showdog. Grooming also makes dogs happier and healthier, and the author argues persuasively that a regular routine of home grooming can have all sorts of benefits for every pet dog and its owner.

As well as keeping the dog looking spruce, this time spent grooming also allows an owner to carry out essential health checks, feeling for lumps, bumps and sores, checking the hygiene of eyes, ears and mouth, monitoring the feel and smell of the coat - in this way, early signs of a health problem can be spotted during a grooming session and any remedial treatment carried out in timely fashion. Excellent advice from a world grooming champion and competition judge.
