Grooming is vital to prevent your dog’s coat getting matted, as well as removing dead hair, dirt and dandruff. Brushing also stimulates the natural oils in the skin and fur, which helps make for a glossy, healthy coat. But grooming isn’t just about brushing your dog’s fur, it’s also chance to check for any unusual lumps or bumps, and give them a general health check. It is the perfect opportunity to check for any signs of fleas or ticks, inspect their teeth, eyes and ears and make sure their claws aren’t overgrown.
It is advised that owners get their dogs used to regular grooming as early on in their life as possible, ideally as a puppy. It’s important that dogs are happy and comfortable with grooming. For this reason, we have a special £10 "Puppy Introduction Offer" for any puppy under 6 months old.
At St James Bark, we do not underestimate the importance of building a bond with your dog prior to their groom. We take the opportunity to spend time playing and fussing your dog before to their groom, so that they feel more comfortable in our company, and therefore throughout the groom.
