What does dog grooming include?

Grooming is necessary for every dog. Keeping their coat clean and well-maintained, trimming their nails, and using preventative pest treatments is important for their overall health. Many dog groomers in the UK operate from specially designed premises that enable them to provide all services to your dog in one visit. You can also find mobile dog groomers who provide dog grooming services at your home. Here are some ways your dog groomer can help:

Brushing & combing

Brushing promotes a healthy and lustrous coat by removing hair, knots, and debris that are stuck in the fur. Your dog groomer will choose a brush that is suitable for your dog’s fur type and will brush out the coat before bathing. Although it’s done by your dog groomer, it’s also important that brushing is also maintained between visits. Regular brushing helps your dog become comfortable with human touch and the sensation of the brush. There’s also less chance of your dog getting matted hair which can be difficult to remove. 


Just like dog walking, a clean coat is an important part of your dog’s health and wellbeing. Most dogs should be bathed once a month, as their skin can dry out with too much washing. You may want to clean them more regularly if they’re exceptionally dirty or smelly. A good dog groomer will be calm and understand animal cues to ensure a relaxing dog washing experience for your precious pet. They’ll start by cleaning the face and head area with a damp, warm cloth, before gently wiping their eyes and ears. Next, your dog groomer will use a shower or hose to clean your dog’s coat with warm water and a mild and gentle shampoo. Your dog will instinctively shake off any excess water, but your dog groomer will also dry them with a towel or blow dryer. 

Fur clipping & trimming

Whether you have a long or short haired pooch, their fur will need regular clipping or trimming for several reasons. Clipping their coat in summer can help your dog stay cooler during hot days. In winter, it’s important to leave their coat long enough to keep them warm but still manageable. Your dog groomer will carefully trim around the face, paws, and sensitive areas to make them feel more comfortable. Whether your pup needs a full clip or just a trim, dog grooming services near you will help you work out what’s best for your dog. 

Nail clipping

Your dog’s nails are naturally maintained through walking and activity, but they need a little help from time to time to keep them at a comfortable length. This is especially important for the dewclaw which doesn’t touch the ground. Many owners worry about hurting their dogs when clipping their nails. A dog groomer takes absolute care and uses special cutting tools designed for dogs. They’ll make several small cuts to ensure they don’t cut too short and hit nerve endings. They’ll make sure your dog is comfortable and doesn’t feel stressed during this process.

Flea & tick treatments

Ticks can be dangerous for dogs, and fleas can cause your dog significant discomfort. Keep them well by including a flea and tick treatment with your regular grooming routine. Prevention is better than cure and your dog will be happier and more comfortable for it. Flea and tick treatments are often combined with the shampoo used for bathing, or they can be used separately after your dog has been washed. If your dog already has fleas, your dog groomer will likely recommend a follow-up treatment to ensure all pests are gone. Your local dog groomer can then recommend a suitable course of treatment, but generally, it’s a good idea to treat your dog monthly to keep fleas and ticks at bay. Dogs can pick up fleas anywhere, but you may need to consider pest control if the fleas have also invaded your home.
