5 Professional Grooming Tips Every Dog Owner Needs To Know

Pro Pooch's Professional Grooming Tips

1. Wash with a great quality shampoo.

Cheaper ingredients like alcohols any synthetics strip the skins moisture.

2. Don't forget about those other areas.

We tend to focus on the coat and nails but don't forget about those other areas like the ears and nose. A healthy dog needs to be looked after from head to toe.

3. Clean those teeth!

Think all dogs have stinky breath? Wrong! Studies show that by age three, 80 percent of dogs exhibit signs of gum disease. Regular cleaning will ensure plaque and tartar build up is minimised.

4. Protect dry skin.

In the same way that humans suffer from dry skin, dogs do too! In the UK we are exposed to very cold weather in winter, and the central heating can cause dryness. Investing in good quality skin balms can protect your dog from the elements. In the same way we use hand creams, and body butters your dog will benefit from the same.

5. Brush them more!

We work with a lot of groomers and this is their most common complaint. Dogs needs to be brushed a lot more. Brushing your dog’s fur will help to move around natural oils and prevent dryness (as will choosing the right shampoo like we mentioned earlier).

Do you consider your dog to be one of the family?

These days we focus so much on what we put into our bodies, health is more of a priority than it has ever been. "Ensuring that dogs have access to healthy wholesome products is something that I really believe in" said Lucy Forrester, founder of Pro Pooch.

"It still amazes me that grooming products are not regulated properly in the UK. Human cosmetics are regulated and for good reason too, yet there is no eqiuvalent for pet cosmetics"

At Pro Pooch we are proud of the ingredients we use in our products, which is why we follow the EU Cosmetic Regulations when producing our products, to ensure they get the same care an attention that human products get before they reach the market.

We are proud of the ingredients we use, we always invest in quality, even if it costs us a little more.
