Origins of dog grooming
What keeps a dog's coat healthy?
Intestinal parasites are a common cause of dog disease. Although many dog owners pay more attention to external parasites (fleas and ticks), it is important to be aware of the importance of regular home-grown parasites because intestinal parasites can also cause significant health problems. Unit 1

Bathing and Brushing Skills
If you love dogs, and don’t mind some hard work, lots of dirt, and the occasional nip from a wet canine, becoming a dog groomer may be the career choice for you. No, it’s not as simple as buying a washtub, brush, scissors, and “open for business” sign. However, becoming a dog groomer is achievable for most anyone with the physical abilities, calm demeanor, patience, and passion for “man’s best friend” that are keys to success in the field. Unit 1

Clipping is ideal for removing hair evenly and creating an appearance that may not be possible with scissors. It is a relatively fast and effective way to obtain a manageable length for the coat, although it may be necessary to provide regular breaks for you and the dog. To achieve the best results, follow the advice below and do not expect to get it right first time. Clipping can take a great deal of practice to achieve a level, even finish. If you have doubts consult a professional groomer or vet for additional advice specific to your dog’s coat type. Unit 1

Teeth, Toes and Beyond
Dog faces are cute, adorable, joyful, soulful, noble, and commanding. Dogs can communicate a wide range of emotions. They are also prone to attracting smut and getting dirty. A dog puts his nose into everything from soil to garbage to food bowls. And the faces of even short-haired breeds can need routine grooming to keep them free of clumps, stains, dried food particles, and other blotches. Unit 1
