We all love having a clean, healthy, and nice smelling dog, but getting him that way can break the bank. Just because you don’t have the means to take your pup to a professional groomer doesn’t mean that you are a bad owner. After all, you don’t have to be a rocket scientist to figure out how to properly groom your dog by yourself. Pawpawlover’s ultimate dog grooming guide contains information about all aspects of grooming care.

In addition to bathing and brushing information, you will learn that your dog requires paw, teeth, nail, and ear care. Tackling each one of these aspects will keep your dog clean, healthy, happy, and in your company for many years to come. Check out these recommendations from our ultimate dog grooming guide.

  • Most pups can stay clean and smelling nice for a month, but if you have an adventurous dog, bath him once a week. Use natural shampoos made specially for dogs.
  • For brushing pick a grooming tool specially designed for your dog’s type of coat. Prevent matting and skin infections with regular brushing if you own a long-haired pup.
  • Invest in a proper paw care and treat your dog with a massage and moisturizing cream. A once in a while pedicure is also in order and we will teach you how to do it safely.
  • You can say goodbye to foul breath and make your dog kissable by brushing his teeth every day. Special canine toothbrush and toothpaste will make this routine fun and enjoyable.
  • Cleaning your dog’s ears is also a part of canine grooming and will prevent the occurrence of painful ear infections. There is a variety of natural cleaning solutions that don’t cost much and are easy to make.

Read our complete guide in order to learn the ins and outs of grooming and tidy up your dog like a pro.
