Coast Dogs love the short , sporty summer look for the beach and outdoors with the cooler Winter weather a lot of dogs are now going one length longer.
Remember - the longer the length of groom the more often grooms are required to avoid matting. What can work really well with the longer length in the groom is alternate Full Grooms and Wash and Tidy's.
Winter Grooming Myth
Myth: Dogs Are Warmer if Their Coats Are Longer In Winter
Many people think they don’t need to groom and trim their dog in the winter and some even think they will get cold if they do.
The humidity & dampness will affect your dog.... Their coats will become damp & wont dry
Keeping their coats at a reasonable length has many benefits:
§ Helps to prevent chills & the dryer coat & skin will help with many ‘old age’ conditions
§ Allows the dog to completely dry off after exercise in rain and beach conditions
§ Allows you to check for ‘hotspots’ and other skin irritations
§ Helps to prevent sore, itchy paws
§ It is easier to check for fleas and to administer treatment
§ Keeps the hair out of their eyes and ears which can cause irritation and even infections if not kept trimmed
· Keeps the Sanitary areas clean and unsoiled
· Helps to reduce that typical ‘damp doggy’ smell!
· The nails are kept clipped (nails grow all year round and long nails can curl back into the pads causing pain, lameness and infection)
· Prevents the coat from becoming matted which can cause skin sores & harbour fleas. It will also be much cheaper to have a neat, clean coat groomed that a matted one!
· Makes wearing a dog coat more comfortable for the dog as it will be placed on top of aDRY coat and skin
· It allows your dog to have a thorough bath, check over, nail trim and to be completely dried off on a regular basis.
· Our grooming room will be warm and comfortable throughout your dogs’ stay
Fleas! Remember to flea regulary.
Winter is here
Dogs should be wormed approximately every 3 months (aka every 12 weeks). Dogs on a raw diet especially need to be wormed regularly.
We currently stock worming tablets for XXS, Small, Medium, Large and Giant dogs.
We are happy to monitor and administer individual doses every 3 months alongside your grooming schedule. We keep records and can remind you when your worm or flea treatments are due.
