"HAVE YOUR BEST FRIENDS GROOMING NEEDS TAKEN CARE OF RIGHT AT YOUR OWN HOME"
WINTER IS HERE
There is a misconception about not grooming your dog in the winter.
Many dogs suffer from skin problems, ear infections, painfully long toe nails and foot pads with mud and irritating road salt and possibly other debris accumulated.
Hidden under your pets coat could be some hair that becomes matted. Once wet, the mat tightens and can take a day or so to dry. It is not good for your pets skin to stay damp. Here you thought your dog was staying warmer with all that extra fur and in fact he was damp and cold and his skin was getting red and irritated. Your pet may appear to be dry on the outside but in fact is actually wet near the skin.
It is warmer to have fluffy layers than a tight , heavy, thick mat of hair. This can happen to an ungroomed pet during the winter months. The coat can become long and neglected with snow, water and dirt in the hair, leaving it damp. In many cases the hair is so thick that it doesn't have a chance to dry out properly.
Professional pet grooming is much more than beautification. Professional grooming includes ear cleaning, nail clipping and shaving and cleaning the pads of the feet. Also a health check for parasites, tooth problems and disease organisms.
If you choose to have your pets fur longer in the winter months, remember, more frequent at home and professional grooming will be needed when the coat is longer. With regular professional grooming, you will be assured of your pet's continued good health.
BONUS! With regular grooming appointments throughtout the winter months, your pet will not require an expensive, uncomfortable and tedious dematting or possible shavedown procedure in the spring. This equals a very happy pet and owner.
MAKE THAT APPOINTMENT
I am a CERTIFIED DOG GROOMER and graduate of THE NORTH JERSEY SCHOOL OF DOG GROOMING in Chatham, New Jersey. I am a member of the New Jersey Business and Industry Association.
I started out grooming for years on my own animals. I learned from books and how toos. Then one day decided to get an official diploma for Dog Grooming.
I to am a beloved pet owner. One of the reasons I decided to enter into the world of mobile dog grooming was that one day my beautiful Black Lab/Belgium Shepard mix "Baby" got skunked and I called all over and could not find anyone who would come out to de-skunk her. I didn't want to put her in my new car and I couldn't leave her outside. She is part of my family. So what to do? I de-skunked her myself. I realized then that their was a need for door-to-door grooming. I was looking for my nitch and found it. The biggist thing is "I loved animals".
My animals include an 9 year old adopted female Black Lab/Belgium Shepard mix. named "Baby" . An 8 year old adopted orange short hair domestic male cat name "Pumpkin Puss". The newest additions to my family is 2 year old female Cavalier King Charles Spaniels named "Molley". And 9 month old female King Charles Spaniel named Apple Rose
I have had a lot of pets during my 56 years. 3 Yorkies, A Golden Retreiver, Boston Terrier, 3 Poodles, Cocker/Golden Mix and a Jack Russel/mix mutt. Cats to name few - 2 long hair and 4 short hair. My daughter Kim was kind enough to leave with me a 3 foot Igunia name "Ziggy" when she went into the Marines. Her Cockateel also lived with us for awhile . I have to also mention 4 white rabbits and 1 duck and chickens, a black angus cow and would you believe a raccoon and chipmuck and a squirel and one canadian goose who thought he was one of my chickens - also a lot of box turtles stayed for a while. Should I mention the goldfish and the gerbiles?
