Portland Dog Grooming – Portland Dog Boarding
Have you ever watched your dog clean itself? The dog’s definition of “clean” certainly falls short of human standards of hygiene. That’s why it is important to groom your dog regularly and make sure they are not getting too filthy. A filthy dog is more prone to infections, abscesses and all sorts of other nastiness, so it is very important that you maintain your dog’s hygiene properly.
Brushing your dog on a regular basis is also very important. All sorts of grime and funk accumulate on your dog’s fur, and brushing regularly can help prevent skin diseases and other skin problems. Dogs with thicker double-coats, such as Huskies and German Shepherds, may need to be brushed as often as every day. Dogs with thinner coats don’t require as much brushing, but doing it once a week is still good practice. When brushing your dog’s fur, place the brush or comb next to the skin and gently brush outward in short and gentle strokes. Brushing is also a great way to check your dog for fleas or other pests.
Bathing your dog about every three months is also very important. Not only will your dog smell infinitely better, it will also be much healthier and happier. It can be a huge pain and mess to give your dog a bath, especially if one or both parties don’t enjoy the process.

It is one of the most trusted Portland dog kennels, so if your pet is stinking up the place, it might be time for some serious grooming.
