1. Brush their coats 

    A quick brush can go a long way. Brushing your dog’s hair will help remove dirt and dead hair from your dog’s coat and skin. It will also help dispense the natural oils which make your dog’s coat shiny and gives it that healthy look. Regular brushing will also reduce matting and tangling, meaning your dog’s next grooming appointment is likely to go much smoother. 

    2. Remove the Goop!!

    Yes, the dreaded goop, which is also known as an excess tear or discharge that collects in your dog’s eyes. Some dogs are more prone to ‘goop’ than others, for example, light-colored dogs such as bichon frise, Cavachon or breeds such as boxers and pugs.

    3. Nail Trimming 

    We recommend having your dog’s nails trimmed at least once a month, however, some dog's nails tend to grow quicker than others and may need theirs cut more frequently. Cutting your pet's nails can be a little tricky and can often lead to a little doggie drama.

    4. Regular Bath’s 
    A bath doesn’t have to be just at the groomers once every 6 – 8 weeks. It’s important to have regular baths at home for good hygiene and to keep your dog’s coat healthy.  Dogs that predominantly spend more time indoors may require less bathing than dogs that spend more time outside.
    We recommend washing your dog no more than once a week, it is essential that dogs aren’t bathed too frequently because it can cause skin irritations, especially if the skin isn’t dried well or harsh soaps are used. Remember to always use dog shampoo like TopDog Premium watermelon shampoo.
    5. Clean their Ears

    Cleaning your pet's ears will help reduce infection and should be completed at least once a month. Some warm water and a cotton pad will do the trick and they might even enjoy it! For your pet's safety, we recommend not using a cotton swab.
