So if you are blessed to have earned the love of an old dog, then please make sure you take care of your senior pal in the best way you can. 

 


Comfort comes first-

If you have an elderly dog, it’s best to go for a mobile dog groomer. This way your dog will be from from just outside your door, this will minimize the undue stress on your senior dog. Make sure you take your dog to a reputable groomer, after all doesn’t your best friend deserve the best?

 

Should my senior dog still see the groomer?

Yes, indeed. While regular grooming is vital for every dog, this is especially important when your dog gets older. Regular grooming sessions will not only make your senior dog comfortable, these sessions are also great to note changes in your dog’s health. Groomers will be able spot any underlying health issues visible on their skin and coat.

Grooming your senior dog regularly can prevent severe matting to their coat.  A matted dog can make your elderly dog feel miserable and stressed. Regular bookings with your local groomer will be much appreciated by your dog and our Groomers especially love taking care of the older doggos.

Brushing

In between appointments, remember to regularly brush your dog.  Many older dogs find it hard to stand for longer periods.  When your dog is having an afternoon nap this is a perfect time to gently brush him/her, while they are lying on their sides.  If your dog looks restless, take a break and continue to groom after.  With age your dog’s skin might grow elastic so be gentle when you are brushing them.

These are just a few grooming tips to make your elderly pooch grow old and grey happily and comfortably.
