7 Benefits to having your dog bathed

There is no absolute rule to how often you should be bathing your dog. It depends on a lot of variables. One thing is for sure, there are many benefits, for both you and your furry friend, to enjoy a regular bathing schedule.

  1. Removes dirt and odor This seems somewhat obvious, but you always know it's time for a bath when your dog is getting smelly. Baths, especially with some great smelling dog shampoo, are an easy way to keep your dog's hygiene in tip-top shape. Our groomers make sure to avoid the dog's ears, eyes, and nose when using soaps and always take their time to provide a soothing experience for your pup.

  2. Strengthens confidence of your dog Spending time bathing your favorite four legged friend helps fortify the relationships they builds with others. It is important to have them gain exposure and adjust to being with others. Bath time is a great time for this since dogs are relaxed by the repetitive motions and stimulation of being brushed and washed. The more often you bring your dog in for a wash, the more likely they are to enjoy the experience.

  3. Softer coat Bathing your dog and using a nice moisturizing dog shampoo can help keep your dog's coat nice and soft. Many dog owners will opt for the deluxe treatment and get conditioner added in after shampoo in order to maintain the moisture in the dog's fur.

  4. Reduced shedding The more often you bathe your dog, the less they are going to shed. If you are getting tired of vacuuming and picking up clumps of hair from your dog every day, a frequent bath followed by brushing your dog will help grab those loose hairs before they end up on your floor. We also offer a special shampoo and conditioner treatment add on called the Furminator which can mean a cleaner home for you!

  5. Helps with allergies (yours and theirs!) Dog's fur is the perfect place to trap allergens, dirt, and bacteria. If you or your dog suffers from allergies, you will benefit from bathing your dog more often. The more often dogs are bathed, the less allergens they will be carrying around in their fur. Washing helps not only your dog, but also you with keeping your allergies at bay.

  6. Helps monitor your dog's health As we bathe your dog, this acts as a time to take a close look at your dog to check to see if they're healthy. During their bath, we make sure to check their ears, nails, and skin to see if there is redness or anything abnormal. This time is also a great time to check for fleas, mites, ticks or lice. If spotted, we alert you so that you can get these issues taken care of quickly.

  7. Mess Free Home! Keep yourself and your bathroom clean and dry by letting the pro's take care of the messy work. This way you get to maintain a smell free environment AND skip the hassle saving you loads of time. Kick back and relax, you've earned it!
