Q. How often should my dog be professionally groomed?
A. This depends on several factors like the breed of dog, the type and length of the coat (long, short, double) and whether the dog is an indoor or outdoor pet. If the dog has a skin problem (allergies) or a coat problem (oily/dry) it will also affect the frequency of grooming. While your dog's coat may look clean, the accumulation of dead hair and dust can lead to skin irritation. For example- weekly for a full coated Maltese, 4-6 weeks for Poodles and Pet Trimmed Shih Tzu and Maltese, Bichon Frise, Schnauzers, Terriers and Spaniels.
Q. How often should I brush my pet between salon visits?
A. Brushing is advisable 1 to 3 times per week to help keep coat clean and free of matts. Regular brushing removes debris, prevents tangling and stimulates healthy hair growth. Brushing is also a great bonding opportunity for you and your pet, allowing you and your pet quality time together. Your dog will also look and feel great afterwards and also remember to give them their
favorite food or toy treat to make their grooming session fun!

Q. How often should my pets ears be cleaned?
A. Ears should be checked and cleaned weekly. Cleaning the ears with a dog specific ear cleaner on a tissue or cotton ball helps reduce the build up of wax and debris which can lead to ear disease. Do not attempt to clean the inner ear canal at any time (No cotton buds). In many breeds, such as the cocker spaniel, the excess hair needs to be clipped away from around and inside the ear flap to allow for better air circulation because their long hair can fall into their food bowls. In other breeds such as poodles, the excess hair in the ear canal needs to be removed to prevent build up wax, debris and to increase air circulation.
