DIY Dog Grooming, From Puppy Cuts to Best in Show: Everything You Need to Know, Step by Step

January 8, 2020 - Comment

You can often tell how healthy a dog is by coat appearance. Grooming your dog regularly offers clues to her health: It nips potential health problems, like allergies, poor nutrition, parasites, or diseases, in the bud, or at least gives you some early warning about them. Grooming also makes your dog (and you) comfortable socializing.

You can often tell how healthy a dog is by coat appearance. Grooming your dog regularly offers clues to her health: It nips potential health problems, like allergies, poor nutrition, parasites, or diseases, in the bud, or at least gives you some early warning about them. Grooming also makes your dog (and you) comfortable socializing.

Learn how to train her to relax and enjoy grooming.
“While you can make excuses not to take your dog to the groomer, you have no reason to make excuses for not doing it yourself any longer.”  –Cesar Millan  Inside you’ll find:- Simple, step-by-step instructions for everything from bathing to brushing.- Practical solutions to common problems like fleas and ticks, dirt and mud.- Creative suggestions for grooming a picture-perfect dog.

Excellent Instructional Resource For Grooming Your Dog! We stopped using our mobile groomer..way too expensive. We decided to do it ourselves. This book told us everything we would need as far as tools. We bought the best clippers we could to do the job right! When we started with the first dog, we had a general idea of what we we’re doing. Thanks to this book, we knew what to do, how to do it and in what order. It has instructions for different kinds of cuts and for different types of hair. They leave out nothing…from trimming nails to sanitary cuts to expressing anal glands Yuck! If you’re a novice and are going groom your dog yourself, this book is invaluable. Grooming is a skill, one that we’ve not mastered yet! It is hard work and takes a long time the first few times. But it’s worth it to not see my dogs tremble when the groomer shows up. We give them tender loving care and they trust us. I feel close to my dogs when I groom them. My husband and I do it together. He works on one side while I work on the other! I highly recommend…

As soon as I got this book I read through the whole thing and bought some of the recommended tools. The next day I set myself up I bought this book out of total frustration with the dog groomers in the area we had moved to several months ago. Every month I would have to explain to them that one of my dogs was a Mimi Schnauzer and the other was a West Highland Terrier. And every time I picked them up they both had Schnauzer cuts!! As soon as I got this book I read through the whole thing and bought some of the recommended tools. The next day I set myself up and groomed both oh my dogs!! It may not have been perfect but my little Westie was so cute when she was done and no longer looked like an alien Schnauzer!!! I may have spent some money on the book and tools but I saved myself $110 and a ton of frustration at the groomers every month from now on! This is an easy to follow instruction book and a great investment too.

Must Buy For Begining Groomer! I purchased this book as a kindle addition and was not disappointed! It was a quick and easy ready with great photography to help guide me through the steps. Mr. Bendersky gave fantastic examples of cuts ranging from long hair to short. I was very excited to try out his puppy cut on my young Shih Tzu. Using his methods I saw my grooming improve three times what I was. I also noticed my dog enjoyed the grooming experience more as well. Now when I turn on the clippers he comes running. He happily sits on his towel as he gets pampered. With all the other grooming books out there that I have read by far this is the best. Overall, this is a exciting and fun book to read. I highly recommend it for a new groomer!
