Grooming your pet should be undertaken all year around but in the spring and fall it's important to prepare them for the coming months.
The winter and spring months will include a lot of shedding and new growth of hair to see them through the season.
Grooming your pet with the proper equipment such as de-shedding tool will help keep the hair under control and off your carpet and floors.
When your pet is spruced up and feeling clean, they are much happier. When you groom them you'll see the difference when you're done. If they roll in the dirt every time you clean them up, their skin is itchy, just like yours and you should change the type of shampoo you use.
Their coat and skin should be glossy and they should only itch the same amount as humans, after all, people itch once in a while and so should your pet. If they itch constantly, then they have a problem with either insects (fleas or ticks or both) or the type of shampoo and/or conditioner is causing their skin to dry out.
A clean pet leads to better behavior and a happier pet. Using the following tips to keep your pet happy, healthy and wise.
Choose the right equipment – use the right tool for the job, whether it's to brush them or de-shed them of hair. Not all brushes work for all types of hair. Use one or all of the following:
Clip toe nails – use a good nail clipper to keep the nails from problems and keep your carpet from snagging.
Use a chamois – A chamois will polish your pet's coat and give it a glossy sheen.

Your pet's health depends on keeping clean including removing tangles, particles and pests. While you're grooming your pet, you can check for fleas and ticks, which can make your pet's life miserable. Not to mention your home due to the insects infesting your carpet and floor. Fleas and ticks can hide anywhere and come to life when you least expect them too, making your life as miserable as your pets.
Winter and spring are some of the best times to give your pet a checkup for the upcoming months. They should visit the vet for a checkup. These are the months when the hair falls out and new hair begins to grow. Brushing them in these months will keep the hair from your floor and you’re your pet.
You can do it yourself and once or twice a month they should be bathed, whether they like it or not. Mostly, they won't like it, but it keeps the clean and healthy.
