Dog Skin Care
Dog skin care is important for all breeds of dog, but some breeds need more attention than others. Smaller dogs have skin that is dry and cannot be shampooed often. This is because their fur is usually long and fine. It will not protect the skin as well as other types of fur. Dog skin care tips for small dogs include only shampooing the dog once every other month, make sure that they have regular grooming, and be sure to feed the dog the right kinds of food that will give it a silky coat and skin that is clean and free from irritation.Read More

Dogs are loyal, playful, and affectionate. Because they are so companionable, they are often dubbed "man's best friends." But dogs share many other characteristics with their human owners, including a tendency towards developing gingivitis (gum disease) as they age. Gingivitis has been diagnosed in dogs as young as three, but a dental hygiene regimen, including regular home brushing, can prevent its development.Read More

Dog nail care is just as important as any other aspects of dog grooming.
You may be thinking, why bother dog nail care in the first place? Because not doing dog nail care can deform your dog's feet, permanently affecting its stance. There is also a high chance that a long nail can snag on something and break off entirely. Your dog will eventually recover from such an injury, but it will suffer unnecessary pain.

Dog Ear Care
Healthy dog ears should be odor-free and have a light pink color. Keeping dog ears clean is very important. They should be cleaned once a week. Yeast, viruses and bacteria thrive in these warm, moist areas which can be associated with a bad odor. Because of the shape of the ear canal, dog ears are prone to problems, such as wax buildup (which can cause hearing loss), inflammation, and most importantly, infections. Do not attempt to clean your dog’s ears if any of these problems exist. You can be doing more harm than good. Long-eared dogs are most susceptible to these infections due to poor air circulation around the ear canal. Take your dog to the vet and talk to him/her regarding any breed-specific problems your dog may encounter in order to be able to provide him/her with a proper care routine.Read More
