Poodle Grooming Advice and Instructions: How to Groom Your Poodle Correctly and When to Choose a Professional Groomer!
If you ask any dog owner or potential dog owner what the main reason why they would not choose a Poodle for their next dog, the one given by most would relate to Poodle grooming.
If you think about it, you can tell from the nature of their coat that it needs a great degree of care.
You cannot simply brush it every now and again and then leave it to its own devices. It requires a lot of time and effort on your part to ensure that your Poodle remains comfortable, happy and in excellent condition in the long term.
The following information, hints and tips will help you to do that and ensure that grooming a Poodle is as hassle free as possible.
First of all, it is important to acknowledge why Poodle grooming is essential. Unlike some other breeds, it is not possible to simply leave the Poodle coat to its own devices because they do not shed their fur.
As such, it will keep growing and growing and growing until you take matters into your hands.
In addition, failing to groom a Poodle can leave him or her prone to itching, skin conditions, redness, soreness and discomfort.
This is why you have to ensure that it is groomed on a regular basis.
You should be aware that a Poodle has to be groomed every day in some way, shape or form.
However, it is necessary to fully clip the breed every six to eight weeks and that is the most time consuming element of the grooming process because it not only takes quite some time but it is an absolute must, and one that you have to be comfortable with if you are to reassure your dog.
The worst mistake an owner could make when grooming a poodle is to be apprehensive about clipping because, coupled with the noise, your dog will react accordingly and make it impossible to perform any sort of effective clipping again.
You must be confident in your ability and this will reassure your dog. However, if you cannot do that then you will need to find a professional groom to do this bit for you.
Getting a professional Poodle groomer to clip your Poodle may be an excellent idea because it provides the exact services that your Poodle needs as well as an excellent experience.
Professional groomers are calm and composed, which immediately puts your dog at ease.
You should look for experienced groomers that can provide recommendations from other customers and exhibit a calm but warm way with your dog. Do not be afraid to visit several with your Poodle to see how he or she reacts.
In addition, some will also allow you to watch to see how it is done so that you can learn yourself and feel comfortable with the process.
If you can afford regular grooming then this is no problem but if you cannot then you may want to follow this particular step.
