GROOM­ING IM­POR­TANT

South Waikato News - - NEWS -

Some­thing that is be­com­ing more com­mon is small breed dogs with coats so mat­ted they need to be shaved back to the skin or given a poo­dle cut.

If you have a new pup and it has long fur get it used to be­ing brushed from when it ar­rives.

If this is not an op­tion find a dog groomer, and have it done reg­u­larly.

It is just like a hair-cut for us hu­mans.

Toe­nails too, grow fast and whether the dog is small or large and if they are not be­ing walked reg­u­larly the enails need trim­ming.
