Bathing a dog may seem easy and effortless procedure. However, bathing at home may be difficult and time-consuming. Some doggies are not huge fans of water and show signs of anxiety or aggression. A lot of breeds, especially those who are brachycephalic or with pricked ears, require extra care to avoid potential health risks.
We are ready to help you if you are a proud owner of a large and fluffy doggie who is shedding profusely or a tiny pup who is shy and require gentle care. Here, at DITW we use professional grooming tub with anti-slippery grid to make bathing more pleasant and less stressful experience for your pup. Our powerful blow driers help not only to minimize risks of getting cold after a bath, but also to get rid of shedding undercoat and to style hair for a trim. We also have more gentle driers for doggies who are a bit nervous.
Our Full groom service includes Bath, Blow Dry, Nail Trim, Ear Cleaning and Full Hair Cut.
As a dog owner you might have noticed that sometimes the hair of your pup gets out of hand. It becomes difficult to brush especially for long-haired dogs that are more susceptible to matting. Trimming the body hair will give your dog a lot of comfort and freedom. It is a good way to make the skin breathe, to get rid of tangles in the hair and also to be aware of any possible skin conditions.
Nothing feels better than going back to pick up your dog from the groomer and see the face trimmed up and pretty. Face trim is always tricky as dogs tend to get more anxious in seeing scissors hovering around their heads. So it is very important to take your dog to a place that is familiar and comfortable. A very good tip is to start trimming from an early age.
Some breeds, for example, German Shepherds, Huskies, Golden Retrievers, Australian Shepherds and others do not require much trim. However, you may still experience some problems when your doggie starts shedding which sometimes can be overwhelming. At DITW we have everything to make your life easier: special Furminator Shampoo helps to loosen hair that can be removed with a blow drier. With different types of deshedding tools, we remove the undercoat in a more effective way than you can do with regular brushes.
Mats are created when dog’s hair stick together as a result of dirt, growing coat, improper brushing or simply by such activities as playing in the water. They are unpleasant and sometimes painful for the dog.
The most common areas that are prone to matting are behind the ears, under the front legs and the legs themselves. It may take a bit of your time but you can get rid of a mat with patience using the right tools and methods. Keep in mind that mats have a tendency to form in the undercoat, often very close to the skin.
Regular brush is mainly designed for outercoat, so it may be a good idea to use a comb that will allow you to reach deeper layers of the coat.
If your doggie has some tangles that can be brushed out and removed without causing much pain for the animal, we will happily do that as a part of your grooming appointment. However, if a dog is presented to us in a severely matted condition, it is our policy to shave the whole coat using clippers with a close blade.
De-matting would cause the animal tremendous stress and discomfort, often leaving a very thin and damaged coat. Shaving the coat is quicker and gentler for the dog. Many furry friends are traumatized by unnecessary hours of de-matting, putting them off grooming for life. We consider shaving an act of kindness – this will be discussed during your consultation.
Nail Clipping and Grinding
Most of the dogs wear down their nails when walking on surfaces like concrete pavement but for the ones that spend a lot of time indoors, nails should be clipped regularly.
It is very important to do nail trim on a regular basis in order to avoid health problems. Overgrown nails can cause a lot of discomfort to your pet, and it will take many sessions to bring nails back to their normal size. Inside your dog’s nail there is an area called quick which contains blood vessels. The more time nails are left untouched, the longer quicks get making it impossible to cut them short. Dewclaws can grow in a curling shape resulting in pain and sometimes infection.
Pawdicure is included in both Bath and Full groom options as well as a separate service between your regular appointments. In addition to nail clipping, we offer grinding to get more smooth and rounded nails.
Brushing the teeth prevents plaque build-up and the growth of bacteria which often may be the cause of bad breath. There are a lot of breeds which are prone to developing teeth problems that can potentially result even in more severe health issues. To avoid all these risks, you can provide your doggies with chewing treats to reduce tartar build-up, maintain a balanced healthy diet and brush teeth regularly. The teeth normally need brushing every two or three days. As dogs get older they will need it more regularly.
At DITW, we offer teeth cleaning with a toothpaste enriched with enzymes and designed specially for doggies. You can use this service if either you or your dog are reluctant about this process at home. Remember, regular teeth cleaning will save you money on visits to the vet.
Eye and Ear Cleaning
All dogs need clean eyes and ears to prevent irritation and infection. Dogs with floppy ears are more prone to ear infection because of the limited access to air. Cleaning the ears regularly can help in preventing ear mites as well as bacterial and yeast infections.
Unpleasant sticky hair around the eyes are signs that your dog needs professional eye cleaning. Our dog grooming services provide the best solutions for shiny and healthy eyes. Because the eyes are rather sensitive parts of the body, many owners prefer leaving this task to professionals. Special grooming wipes for eye cleaning will help you to maintain your doggie’s eyes clean between appointments.
How long does grooming a dog usually take?
The time it takes to groom a dog depends on size, breed, and the requested services. If your dog is matted, they should be brushed or dematted first. Your dog’s behavior is also a factor in the amount of time it takes to groom. If your dog is old or if it is anxious, it will naturally take more time. So please tell us about your dog’s reaction to bathing and grooming beforehand, so that we can make your appointment enjoyable and pleasant for you and your pet. The average time is about 2 to 4 hours to get your sweet companion all cleaned up and ready to play!
How often should dogs get groomed?
It depends on the coat type, as well as age and overall condition. But a regular dog grooming should be done about once in 5-8 weeks. Between grooming sessions, you can brush your dog’s hair and teeth to make grooming more enjoyable for them. You can also discuss the interval between grooming sessions during the consultation with our groomers.
If your dog is a bit shy about the grooming, do not delay the process. The sooner they get used to different grooming procedures, the better they will react to it. We recommend to start bringing your pup to the groomer at an early age. During first sessions puppy will be slowly introduced to the new environment, get familiar with a bath tub, grooming table, sound of clippers and scissors.
Grooming prices vary, depending on size, breed and coat condition.
Puppies need to be introduced to water, trimmer, drier and other grooming tools at an early age, this will help reduce or eliminate the fear of such tools in older ages.
We recommend that puppies attend some grooming session before their adult fur grows.
We use all natural shampoos and conditioners.
