Product Description

A well-groomed dog is a pleasure to behold but, as this informative and inspirational book explains, grooming is not just about creating an immaculate showdog. Grooming also makes dogs happier and healthier, and the author argues persuasively that a regular routine of home grooming can have all sorts of benefits for every pet dog and its owner. As well as keeping the dog looking spruce, this time spent grooming also allows an owner to carry out essential health checks, feeling for lumps, bumps and sores, checking the hygiene of eyes, ears and mouth, monitoring the feel and smell of the coat - in this way, early signs of a health problem can be spotted during a grooming session and any remedial treatment carried out in timely fashion.

Review

Grooming Your Dog has been launched by Interpet Publishing to teach owners how to keep their dog looking and feeling great. This modern well illustrated book is written by one of the most well known and respected groomers in the country. Author, Peter Young has been a professional groomer for many years. He is also a World Grooming Champion Judge and International Stylist. Grooming Your Dog is writeen with the needs of the average dog owner firmly in mind. The best grooming tools for each coat type are clearly shown. Newly commission and step-by-step photographs explain how the right equipment is used correctly to produce a perfectly groomed dog. Tips from years of grooming both pet dogs and show dogs are shared in the pages of this new book. Even with periodical trips to a professional groomer, dogs need regular grooming at home making this book a valuable tool for all owners. Providing people with the knowledge and encouragement to carry out grooming procedures themselves is a bital part of responsible dog ownership. Also importantly, correct grooming procedures include essential health checks such as feeling for lumps and sore areas and checking eyes, ears and coat. Grooming also plays a part in cementing a loving bond between owner and dog. Part one of Grooming Your Dog is an introduction covering care and information on skin and coat, diet allergies, parasites, matting, moulting and coat changes due to ageing and neutering. The photgraphic sequences in part two are a big part of the way the section on bathing, drying, and grooming are explained. Areas in the book deal with each coat type seperately covering smooth and short coats, combination coats, double coats, long haired and wool coats, wire coats, even hariless breeeds such as Chinese Crested and Mexican Hairless. In the bathing and drying sections of Grooming Your Dog, pictures in photographic sequences are numbered to correspond with written instruction on the same page. The book makes it clear which grooming tools and equipment should be used and how. Arrows are used over pictures to explain which way to brush. A diagram explains safe nail clipping and another gives the commonly used names for parts of the dogs coat. In the final part of the book, the author shares his valuable professional parlour Tips helping people avioid, and deal with, common pit falls of home grooming. This section covers brush burn, clipper rash and minor nicks or cuts. A useful double page schedule recommends a routine to cover all aspects from bathing to teeth and worming. The schedule details how often each procedure should be carried out over a 12 month period to make an excellent reference for years to come. --Melanie Mines For Pets

I am new to grooming my dogs they usually go to the parlour but it costs too much as I have 3 dogs so I want to do it myself. This book has so much information and step by step guide with pictures it makes it look easy. I am looking forward to following the book and my dogs will look great and I will save over £90 for each time I groom them. My daughter wants to learn so that she can groom her dog he is a golden retriever, I have 2 Shih Tzu x Jack Russels and a Scottie x Yorkshire terrier so they need to be groomed regularly.

I'm really pleased with this book, you have a lot more photos to look at, to see how he's handling a dog, I'm not professional grooming and clipping, I find this very helpful, some books are quite technical, which is ok but they can twist you in knots with there explanations on things, this book is much easier to understand
