Pet Grooming Services


Naturally dogs keep their hair and skin in good condition by licking, scratching, dry bathing (rolling in dust) or simply by getting wet. Saliva contains natural antiseptics, while licking and scratching are normal beneficial activities, when performed in moderation.
Rolling and rubbing are ways in which the dog massages its skin, removes debris from areas that can not be reached by tongues or paws and activates its sebaceous glands (their secretions also have antimicrobial properties).
No matter how much your dog cleans itself, it still has its distinctive, funky smell. The reason why dogs smell like, well…dogs is that they do not sweat like we do. Dogs perspire from their paws and emit a light perspiration from their hair follicles. That perspiration has a chemical scent, individual to the dog. Maybe all dogs smell the same to us, but they do not smell the same to each other. Additionally when the dog’s normal skin microorganisms like bacteria and yeasts are influenced by some external factors, many volatile odoriferous compounds are released.
Ear infections, anal sacs infections and bad oral hygiene also influence the way your dog smells. To avoid these conditions groom your dog regularly.


Everyday dirt, dander and allergens from your dog’s coat, all contribute to a stinky odor. The best way to remove them is by daily brushing. Since dead hair and skin cells lead to bad odor, make sure to increase the brushing or combing during your dog’s shedding period.
Bathing is an essential part of grooming. However too much bathing can do more harm than good because it disrupts the natural balance of the skin microorganisms. Replace the old-fashioned bathing with wet dog wipes, dry shampoos and powders.
Wet wipes offer an easy and quick alternative to a daily bath. Just make sure to avoid wiping the area around the eyes. Dry dog shampoos come as sprays and powders and they are designed to be rubbed into the skin. They help eliminating the grease and odor from your dog's hair without the hassles or risks associated with a traditional bath. They are easy to apply and remove.


Check your dog’s ears for odor, inflammation and wax build-up. If there is too much wax, remove it with a proprietary ear wax remover or simply wipe the inside of the ear with a cotton ball moistened with mineral oil. If your dog has hairs inside his ear canal, you can pluck them with tweezers.


Good grooming includes proper brushing of teeth and gums. Brushing prevents tooth decay and gum diseases. Keep in mind that your dog should have his own toothbrush and toothpaste. Human toothpastes are toxic for dogs


The dog’s nails need to be kept at a proper length. If you are not sure how to cut your dog’s nails without damaging the nerve, ask your veterinarian to show you how to do it.


Some breeds grow an abundance of hair on the top, bottom and between their toes. These hairs are like magnet for dirt. Use blunt-tripped scissors to carefully cut away the excess hair on the feet.


Sharing your life and every day experiences with a pet brings great deal of joy, but it also requires responsibility and long-term commitment. If you know that you want a pet, but you are not sure what type of pet.
Follow this simple guidelines:
Research and educate yourself
Before deciding which pet to choose you need to learn about the needs of different types of pets. Each animal has its own physical and emotional needs that need to be fulfilled. The right choice should be made depending on those needs, as well as your lifestyle habits. It is advisable to do a thorough research and understand the implications.
Buying a pet on a whim is the biggest mistake. If it turns out that you cannot take proper care of the animal, both you and your pet will be unhappy. The pet will feel neglected and you will feel guilty.

Answer the question why you want a pet
It is important to determine why you want a pet. Do you need it to be a child substitute? Do you need a companion? Do you want to teach it tricks and interact with it? Do you want to pamper it? Although how your relationship will develop depends greatly on the pet’s character, rather than on the species, it is good to have proper directions on where you want to go.

For how long you want to keep your pet
Different pets have different life spans. For example small parrots live 8-14 years, while big parrots live up to 60 years. Dog and cats live around 12-16 years. Guinea pigs live 5-6 years and mice live only 2 years. Base your decision on whether you are looking for a long-term or short-term commitment.

Think about your current pets
If you already have some pet and want to expand the family, make sure the pet you select can fit into your current household. If your current pet has been alone for a longer period or if is not socialized it will be hard for him to accept newcomers. There are also some safety risks involved. For example, dogs and cats may pray on smaller pets like guinea pigs, rabbits and reptiles.

The cost of being a pet parent
Owning a pet is not only a long-term commitment in time, but in money too. The initial cost of the pet is not the only expense. You need to evaluate the expenses related to the pet’s feeding, housing, entertainment and grooming. Not to mention paying the vet’s bills.
