Mistakes that occur while dog grooming

Dog grooming can be a highly entertaining and rewarding profession at the same time. While it is not always easy to tame these little pet babies and groom them according to their parents’ requirements, it is always nice to see the good results and the faces of happy pet parents. Dog grooming is essential for the health and well-being of the dog in the long run – and even for short durations as they need their nails to be trimmed regularly (if not, it might lead to trouble in posture and many more unpleasant health implications). In spite of the joy and happiness this profession brings, there are also a lot of things that can go wrong while the job is being done. There is a sense of greater responsibility to ensure that the dog (or yourself) is not harmed when the session is in progress. 

 

Since owners are rightfully extremely overprotective about their dogs, even small mistakes can cause big losses in career and money. It is also important to ensure that the session goes smoothly and there is no residual hurt or wounds left that might affect the dog later (even if it is not apparent during the session). Although the temperament and cooperation of the dog can be specified earlier by the pet parent, a lot of things can still go wrong at the last minute and will end up being the highlight of the entire dog grooming session. This is why it is better to know the things that can go wrong during a dog grooming session. Here are a few things you need to avoid as a dog groomer – 

 

Brushing dog – It becomes super important that you be careful while you are brushing their fur out – both before and after bathing them. This is because if you wet the fur without bathing them, you might end up tangling them worse and forming complicated knots. After bathing them, although it might seem easier to brush wet fur if you are not careful, you might pull out their hair and cause burns that might be painful for them for quite some time.  

 

Cutting dog nails – This is quite a tricky activity as the dogs struggle to stay still the most when you are trying to cut their nails. One of the main things that can go wrong when you cut their nails is that you might end up cutting it off too deep till the ‘quick’ of their nails, causing them pain and bleeding. Additionally, if you use blunt nail clippers, you might crush the dog’s nails as opposed to cutting them, which again becomes agonizing for them and they will start cooperating less and less.  

 

dog Shampooing – First, you will have to make sure that the shampoo you use is not harmful and too chemically laden. Most dog shampoos are made to be safe for the eyes so even though it might not cause serious damage to the eyes, it will cause irritation and itching which will lead the dog to be agitated and move around a lot. It is important to note that you might also have to make sure what allergies the dog has – you will have to ask the pet parent and avoid using shampoos with ingredients and smells that might cause an allergic reaction with the dog.

 

Cutting and shaving dog hairs – When cutting and/or shaving a dog’s fur, it is vital that you do not end up shaving them too close to the fur. These will cause shaving burns that will leave them uncomfortable for long after the grooming session. The unhappier the dog is, the unhappier the pet parent is with the service.
