Having your dog groomed regularly can offer numerous benefits to their overall health, hygiene, and comfort. This is especially true if you have a dog with more demanding grooming needs, like a sheepdog, a poodle, or another breed that requires regular brushing and trimming This article will go over some benefits of having your dog groomed and why it could be a good idea for you to have it done at the boarding facility if you board them regularly.
The benefits of having your dog regularly groomed
Prevent matting: If you have a dog that requires regular grooming, then their coat can become very matted if they aren't groomed how they should be. Mats can become so severe that they can limit the dog's range of motion and be painful. When you take them to the groomers, they will be bathed, and their fur will be trimmed and brushed. Any mats that are starting to develop will be removed.
Healthy coat and skin: Regular grooming can play an important role in the health of your dog's coat and skin. Regular brushing will circulate the blood, which helps distribute natural oils and promotes a shiny and healthy coat. Regular professional grooming also gives the groomer a chance to get an up-close look at the condition of your dog's skin to catch issues like ticks, rashes, and abnormal growths sooner.
Reduce shedding: Some dogs shed a lot, and this can cause your house to have fur everywhere. It can even get on the furniture, and then you pick it up on your clothes. When dogs are groomed regularly, the groomer will use a special brush that helps remove any fur that's about to shed.
The benefits of having your dog groomed at the boarding facility
You can take your dog to the groomers and drop them off to be groomed and then pick them up in a few hours when they're done. However, this requires you to be available when they call, and it also requires your dog to be away from you on what could be one of the few days you have to spend time with them.
If you take your dog to the boarding facility when you go out of town, then this can be a great opportunity for you to have them groomed in a more convenient manner.
You may also be able to have your dog groomed for a discounted price when you have it done at the boarding facility while they are already there.

After my 13 year old lab had surgery, I couldn't leave her home alone while I went to work. She had to be supervised to ensure that she didn't hurt herself and rip out her stitches. That was the first time that I even considered taking her to a pet day care center. I have grown to love the center that I take her to when I have to work long hours or have commitments that can take all day. If you have a dog that you don't or can't leave home alone, this blog can help you find a pet day care center for your pet and some tips for making the transition into day care easier for you and your pet.
