Frequently asked questions

How often do I need to wash my dog?


The simple answer to this question of how often to bathe a dog is: how often do you want to bathe your dog? Unless a dog has skin problems, there is no specific need to bathe the dog except to make him a more enjoyable companion.
Just like people, some dogs get stinky faster than others do. I have known dogs that have never had a bath in their life and do not have an unpleasant smell, but my own dogs get bathed every month. I recommend you bathe a dog with normal skin once a month with dog shampoo.
If you want to bathe more often than that, use a soap-free or moisturizing shampoo to prevent the skin from becoming dry




Should you shave your dog for summer?


I will not recommend it, only if you really have to. It is best to consult with your veterinarian or pet stylist (groomer) before considering a "shave-down. "You DO NOT shave double-coated breeds, such as Sheltie, Collie, Husky, German Shepherd, and any dog that has a soft undercoat and a harder outer coat layer.

How often do I need to clip my dog nails?


Just as human nails, dogs nails grow constantly and they need a trim every so often, it will be good to ask your groomer to teach you how to trim just for you to know. Some dogs do walk a lot and you will not need to trim at all, dogs and cats nails should be trimmed monthly.

How long does it take to groom a dog?


We run grooming business from home with limited 5 dogs per day. If your dog is badly matted, it could take up to three hours for grooming to be completed. Also considering, your dog’s temperament, breed, size, and grooming experience, for hand-stripping dogs it can take much longer than clipping.

The average time for groom-trained dogs is around two hours; based on my own experience I may take longer just to make your dog as happy as possible.




When should you take your puppy to the groomer?


Many puppy owners waiting until their pups are 6 months of age or older before taking them to the groomer. But the general rule of thumb is that they should be no more than 16 weeks old, as younger pups are easier to train.




How often do you get your dog groomed?


Depending on the length of the coat is a huge factor in how often the dog would need groomed. Poodles in kennel cuts could go 6 weeks. Full coats or long cuts should be done every 4-6 weeks. Shih Tzus and Lhasa Apsos should also be every 6 weeks if the owner keeps up with the brushing needed.




How often should you brush your dog's hair?


We suggest you brushing your dog every couple of days no matter the length of his coat.

Sometimes your brushing can have a specific purpose, such as removing hair mats or helping your dog shed his seasonal coat, but most often you'll be doing general-purpose brushing or combing. Choose the right brush.
