How often should you bathe your pet? Weekly, monthly, or longer?
Things to consider:
  • Itchy?
  • Shedding?
  • Rolled in something smelly?
  • Fleas/Ticks?
  • Live inside or outside?
  • Fear, anxiety and/or aggression?
  • Age? Sometime seniors need special care and can not stand for as long as they once did. We often need to adjust the groom as our precious pets age to keep them comfortable. This includes breaking sessions up into multiple days, changing haircut length, & doing the best we can while focusing on what's most important.

Why do dogs roll in garbage, manure, or other smelly stuff?

We would love to talk more about your particular situation. Each pet is unique & has different needs. When bathing at home, use a mild shampoo or discuss if a medicated bath is best. You can use wet wipes between baths or to wipe pet after going outside to help with allergies. Also local honey can help people & pets with allergies.
