Do you groom them? All dogs need to be groomed either by you or a professional. A dog's hair, long or short needs to be brushed. This helps with removing dead, lose hair from the body and makes the skin healthier. Bathing is important as well, not to mention that they smell better. There are just as many shampoo's available for dogs as there is for humans these days, but I must warn you, most shampoo's made for humans are not formulated for dog's coat and skin. One product that is, is called Eqyss. They have balanced the PH for animals, and removed any wax polymers and oils commonly found in both human & pet grooming products. Unlike humans, animals are all slick skinned. The hair follicle must be free of any residues in order to accept moisture from the air.Toe nail trimming is a big part of grooming and not always an easy thing to accomplish. Some dogs are just bad! Take my own dog for insistence, he hates to have his nails cut and even though I am a groomer, I have a hard time with him, but it needs to be done. I my business, I will not fight with a dog that doesn't cooperate with me, It is just to hard on the old body, mine not the dogs, so some dogs may need to go to a vet's office where if the nails are cut to short due to bad dogs, the vet can repair the damage. Ear cleaning is something that a lot people over look until their dogs show signs of infection or they smell so bad that you can smell them coming a mile away. A great product that I use is Ear Care Formula for Dogs and Cats by HealthyPetNet. This cleans the ears by bringing dirt and debris to the surface. It eliminates odor, dissolves ear wax and soothes the ears. This to can be purchased at Pipschoice.
Long coated dogs need to be trimmed occasionally if not on a regular basis. The hair will just keep growing and will become matted. This causes all kinds of problems to the pet. Skin becomes tight, dander gets trapped down to the skin, this becomes red and sore causing with unnecessary discomfort for your pet.
You see, grooming is a big part of a healthy dog as well what you feed them.
So grab your brush and have some productive quality time with your pet.

Meet Suz, this is the best smile she could give me for her Valentine's picture. She gets so relaxed during her grooming that she almost falls asleep.
She takes NuVet supplements and I have seen great improvement in her skin and coat. Her little brother, Bobby whom I wasn't able to put on my blog because his picture did not turn out, has had wonderful improvements for his allergies. Look for his picture of before and after next month.

Being in my line of work, I don’t know to many people that don’t have an animal as a companion. Pets bring so much love into our lives. If you don’t share your home with a pet, you don’t know what you are missing. If you are alone, a pet can be such a comfort, not to mention how they can give you a sense of security. Companion animals: dogs or cats can:
- A pet can give you a sense of well-being, Webster’s definition of well-being is : the state of being happy, healthy, or prosperous :
- A pet can help promote a lower blood pressure. You don’t want a serious condition that can lead to coronary heart disease, heart failure, stroke, kidney failure, and other health problems.
- A pet can decrease the chances of depression in older people.
- A pet can promote a sense of high self-esteem in older people and that makes such a big difference in their lives. I know first hand how a little red toy poodle made my mom happier then she has been in years.
- A pet can motivate a person to exercise. Go for walks, throw a ball, jog and play.

Here is Bosco sporting his Lion look. This is a modified Continental Clip which is the most popular show trim for standards. In the Continental Clip, the hindquarters are shaved with pompons on hips. The face, feet, legs and tail are shaved leaving bracelets on the legs and a pompon on the tail. The rest of the body is left in a full coat. With this style that Bosco is wearing, there are no pompons on the hips and I taper the hair line down from his neck. Also, he has a small mustache and a goatee.
