- Dog Grooming
Almost every dog owner has smelled the dirty dog smell and either taken on the task of grooming the dog from home or finding a professional groomer. Dogs start smelling funky when they have a build up of dander, dirt and oils, so regular grooming can prevent them from getting to the point of having a noticeable smell. Dogs can be overbathed though, so it is important not to bathe a dog more than once a month. The frequent bathing will wash away too many oils from the skin and either dry it out causing flaking or cause an overproduction of oils making the coat greasy. There are shampoos specially formulated for frequent bathing which helps to reduce the amount of oils stripped away from the dogs coat. There are many different kinds of shampoos formulated for different coat types and ailments such as whitening, low shed and medicated. When bathing a dog the key to a good bath is saturating the coat completely, scrubbing the shampoo all the way to the skin and rinsing the coat very well. Rinsing is very important because any shampoo residue left on a dog's skin can cause irritation. Usually an at home groom/bath would end with a good towel dry whereas a professional groomer will use a high velocity dryer to quickly dry a dog completely. Many dogs require regular haircuts along with their bath which should be left to a professional groomer as grooming can be very dangerous. Professional groomers will also clean a dog's ears and clip their nails with each grooming service. Whether you bathe your dog at home or take it to a groomer, try to maintain a 6-8 week schedule to keep you four legged family member nice and clean.
- Clipping a Dog's Nails
Dogs can be such a special part of any family. Many people consider them like four legged children, and just like children they require assistance grooming themselves. Toenail trimming is vitally important to maintaining a dog's health and comfort, but quite often overlooked until they start causing the dog issues. When a dogs nails get too long they can get caught on things and can be ripped out or broken into the quick, both of which are very painful. Also if a dogs nails are left overgrown for too long it can start to change the bone structure of the dogs feet, flattening them out and/or even twisting the toes. How often a dogs nails need to be clipped depends on how quick the digs nails grow, how active the dog is and what kind of surfaces the dog walks and runs on. Rough surfaces like cement keep a dogs nails filed down so they need clipping less often. Smooth surfaces like tile are not going to have any kind of filing effects so the nails will likely need clipped once every month or two. When it comes to actually clipping the nails the most important thing is to avoid clipping into the quick, or sensitive blood vessel at the base of each nail. White nails are much easier because the pink is generally quite visible so you just clip a little before the pink area. Black nails are more difficult because more often than not you have to try to pinpoint the quick based on where the nail begins to look hollow. For most people this is a job best left to the professionals like veterinarians and groomers.

Call or Text Anytime About The Full Story Fresh out of High School and on my 18th birthday I got the call for a job as a bather for a Corporate Grooming Salon. I did much more than just bathing (worked in nearly every section of the store, including caring for the other animals). In less than 2 years they offered to send me to grooming academy and I accepted. I spent the next several months learning and practicing before my academy was complete and I was considered a groomer. I worked for 3 different stores over a 7 year period and learned so much from the many groomers I work along side. I decided to leave the corporate grooming world because I enjoy making sure my work is quality and often times this means taking my time.. which in the corporate world is losing money because in that world higher quantity in less time is more money... I prefer to give the best quality work possible to every client and their furbabies, which is the inspiration behind the Pawsitively Purrfect name! My husband (Rev. Copeland) and I realized that we could use my grooming as a way to fund his dream of community outreach programs through his ministry and eventually we could have my dream of a pet rescue as well! So here you have it: from Clandestant Ministries, a fundraising program, Pawsitively Purrfect Grooming.
