The pet pooch is none but the most adorable family member of our house. They have the innate quality in keeping us busy with their mischief and overloaded cuteness. But that is not all. As a dog owner, the perfect grooming of these innocent souls is also essential. Read below the five expert tips to groom your cuddly buddy. Follow the ways to let him enjoy life hale and heartily.

● Detangle His Locks

The dog is none other than one of our family members. So, you should treat him as a small child who cannot brush his hair! Be gentle and cater to your pet pooch's requirements. Matted fur is very prevalent amongst long hair pooches. So, clean once a day to keep the matting at bay. Purchase a metal comb, pin brush, and a slicker brush to comb your canine's hair. While brushing, if you find a cluster of matting at a couple of places on his body, rub some corn starch on that area. It will loosen the mat, and slowly you will be able to detangle the knots with your pooch's slicker brush. Brush on all four sides to get better results.


Once you have detangled all the mats, check thoroughly by rubbing your hands all over his body. Check the portions that are not visible clearly, like areas underneath his legs, tail, paws, and belly. Finally, with the pin brush and the metal comb, brush his hair in upwards and downwards movement—this helps in taking out the rest of the dead hair. To make your pet pal smell good, groom him a dry bath with dog perfumes and powders. Let your canine buddy smell sweet the entire day!


● A Good Pedicure Is A Must!

The grooming of your pet pooch is not about brushing his bushy hair and tail, but includes his pedicure too! The constant clicking on the floor stands as a good reminder that your pet pooch's pedicure is due! Schedule a pedicure session at home every couple of months for his well-being. Many pet buddies go under 'clipper anxiety,' which you have to undergo many times. But according to most, there is no best way than to 'clip' your pet pooches' nails.  You do not have to be a trained dog groomer for trimming and shaping his nails. But then, while clipping the nails, you should be careful of the nail bed, as it consists of all the veins and blood vessels. And, too much pressure on their nails with the clipper might make them bleed.


While planning to clip his nails, you should take somebody for assistance. One has to hold their paws for you to find out the right nails to cut. There are various kinds of nail clippers available in pet retail outlets or online stores. Purchase one according to the breed you own. Try to get hold of the clipper with a small lock. It helps in adjusting the portion of the nail that you should clip. After the clipping process, file them well and check for any sharp edges. A decent filing will reduce the frequency of the growth of the nails while keeping their paws clean. Moreover, by incorporating a regular pedicure in its grooming schedule, you will prevent it from being affected by early arthritis.
