It contains vital information that shows you that grooming your own dog yourself is much easier than you ever thought possible!
I offer professional dog walking, pet sitting in the clients home, vet runs, light grooming and house sitting. I have a maximum of three dogs when walking. I am happy to walk your dog solo if she or he is elderly, has special needs, or simply doesn't like walking with other dogs. I have experience with special needs pets, I'm certified in emergency dog and cat first aid by the American Red Cross and I'm licensed and insured by the state of New York. I'm reliable, compassionate, kind and I love animals deeply. The pets in my care are treated as if they are my own which means they are insanely spoiled. I started my business to enrich the lives of animals. Our pets experience stress and separation anxiety when their parents can't be there for them. My mission is to minimize that stress and give them the best possible experience during those times. On dog walks I do my best to match up similar size dogs, I carry a backpack with supplies, filtered water, towel, warm blanket, pet first aid kit, emergency contacts, waste bags, treats, if allowed, extra leashes, collars and harnesses and anything else a particular dog may need. Last but not least, we always have fun.
Not surprisingly, many dog owners forget about taking good care of their dogs' ears.

However, dog's ears is no less important part of your pooch's body either, and there are a few things that you need to look into doing on a regular basis.

Even if you send your dog to a groomer every few weeks, there will still be occasions when it’s easier and timelier to wash, trim, or clip your dog yourself.Shampoo is an important dog-grooming tool. Dogs’ skin has a different pH balance than human skin, so invest in dog shampoo rather than using your own. Look for one that matches your dog’s age (puppy shampoo, for example) and needs. If your dog has sensitive skin, consult your vet before making a shampoo choice. Your vet can also provide advice on medicated shampoo.Whether you’re grooming your dog on your own or taking him to a professional, remember the importance of proper brushing and combing. Dog grooming spreads skin oils throughout the coat, resulting in fewer tangles and mats, which can be painful and can injure the skin. Grooming also provides the opportunity to spot any problems sooner rather than later, including skin irritations, fleas, ticks, unusual lumps, or hernias. Even more, it’s a great way to bond and show affection.
