When you have a furry, four-legged companion in your life, it is expected that they will come with a certain amount of maintenance. When it comes down to it, why is dog grooming really important? There are a lot of products out there that practically saturate the market. Each and every single one of them claims to do the job better than most.
Yet, they don’t really answer the question at all. We gave this quite a bit of thought and we came upon the basics which continue to drive pet owners into giving as best care for their pets as possible. Basics like:
When a dog is unkempt and is kept dirty, there are a lot of things that can go wrong, especially for a dog with a long coat. Dirt and debris can build up over time and can have some pretty adverse effects to the health of a dog. Crust can build up over their eyes and take away their sight.
Long hairs can be more prone to catching ticks that are out in the wild. Keeping a dog well groomed raises their chances of living a happy and healthy life.
When you have a dog, it’s not just their health that is on the line because of grooming. The hygiene of the dog will also affect its owner in the long run. If the owner has particular allergies, leaving a dog unkempt will increase the likelihood of the dog picking up particles that can trigger allergic reactions.
Human skin—especially over prolonged periods of exposure—can grow to be rather sensitive to certain things. A dog which has poor grooming can adversely affect the hygiene of the owner.
These two basic reasons remain to be true no matter how much time has passed. We want to know what you think about this. Why do you think dog grooming continues to be important?
