Keeping your pet neatly groomed throughout the year doesn't have to be expensive or difficult. Here are some top tips on how to groom your pets yourself at home:

1. Frequently brush your pet's coat. Keeping your pet's fur brushed will help to remove dirt, dead hair, and bad odours. It will also keep your pet's coat shiny and will prevent matting. If you plan to trim your pet's fur yourself, keeping their coat well brushed will make the trimming/cutting experience nice and smooth.

2. Trim your pet's nails. This can be difficult to do but is highly necessary as long nails can be uncomfortable and unhygienic for your pet. Just remember to avoid cutting the dark part inside the nail (called the 'quick) as this is the blood supply to your pet's nails.

3. Brush your pet's teeth. Ideally you should brush your pet's teeth daily, but 2-3 times a week is the recommended minimum. Be sure to use only pet friendly toothpaste. 

4. Keep their fur short, especially in the summer months. Depending on your pet's coat, either use a trimmer or grooming scissors to keep their coat neat and short. Get some treat toys which you can stuff with goodies and freeze to keep your pet distracted during the grooming experience.

5. Keep your pet distracted. While cutting or trimming your pet's fur, it will make the experience significantly easier if your pet is enjoying it. The best way to ensure your pet feels rewarded or distracted through the process is to keep them distracted with their favourite treats or toys. Try applying some peanut butter on the tiles or freezing some treats in your pet's toy to keep them occupied you groom them.
