Brushing: Regularly brush your dog's coat to remove tangles, mats, and loose fur. This also distributes natural oils and prevents shedding.
Bathing: Use a dog-specific shampoo and lukewarm water. Be gentle, and avoid getting water in their ears and eyes.
Drying: Towel dry your dog and use a hairdryer on the lowest setting if they tolerate it.
Nail Trimming: Trim the tips of your dog's nails using a pet nail clipper, being cautious not to cut too close to the quick.
Ear Cleaning: Clean your dog's ears with a dog ear cleaning solution, but don't go too deep. Gently wipe the visible part.
Teeth Cleaning: Brush your dog's teeth with a dog toothbrush and toothpaste. This prevents dental issues.
Anal Gland Care: If necessary, consult a vet or groomer to express your dog's anal glands.
Trimming Fur: Use scissors or clippers to trim excess fur around the paws, ears, and other areas, if needed.
Eye Care: Wipe away any discharge from your dog's eyes using a damp, clean cloth.
Regular Check-ups: Maintain regular vet visits and consult a professional groomer for more complex grooming needs.
