Grooming

View
All of us have things that scare us, but for our four-legged friends, loud noises, new situations, and changes in the weather can be daunting. Unable to communicate exactly what's causing their fears, dogs depend upon us to decipher their concerns, and most importantly, make them feel safe and secure.

Step 1

Consider investing in nail clippers specially contoured for dogs. You could also use a Dremel or PediPaws tool to file the nails as an alternative to clipping them.

Step 2

Choose a spot for your dog's pedicure that's quiet, with few distractions and no escape routes.

Step 3

If your dog is unaccustomed to nail trimming, try starting with a gentle paw massage, tenderly rubbing and manipulating your dog's toes, much like a luxurious foot rub.

With winter weather on its way, it’s time to grab your dog’s snow boots and play, play, play! Although a dog’s paws are tough and strong, they need protecting while making snow angels.
You don't always have to be nose-to-nose on the couch or playing fetch in the yard to bond with your dog. Regular grooming can be another opportunity to grow closer together.
Just like you, your new companion needs regular grooming. And the earlier you start him, the more accustomed to it he will be. In fact, it will become something you both enjoy—a bonding opportunity to pour on the fun!
