What are the Benefits of Dog Grooming?

Full Grooming Service

In the 30 years that we’ve been running Fairview Boarding Kennels, we’ve seen first-hand just how many great benefits a full dog grooming service can bring to the dogs that we serve throughout Selby. Of course, grooming can improve the appearance of your dog, but there’s so much more to it than that! It is also vital for their health – both physical and mental.

Dogs that have long nails, unkempt coats and overgrowing hair will often be very uncomfortable, so even if they don’t pick up any physical health conditions, you can expect them to feel stressed out and irritable. This means that a bath and a trim is a very soothing process, cleaning away the debris and bacteria that will have begun to affect them. Imagine your first proper shower after a weekend at a campsite or even just a day hiking; that wonderful, refreshing feeling is what our full grooming service gives to your dog.

Good dog grooming will also help with your pet’s hygiene, and by removing dead or unkempt hair we can help to stop the spread of pests like fleas. Of course, this isn’t just great news for your dog, but also for you and your family, as dealing with a dog who has become ill or infected with fleas and other parasites is a difficult process that every owner wishes to avoid!

The full grooming service is the ultimate treat for dogs in our care, giving them the chance to relax while we pamper them and tidy them up.

It’s always nice to see a dog owner’s eyes light up when they come to pick up their pooch and are met by a tidy, well-cared for and, most importantly, happy dog!

So, what does our full grooming service consist of? We will bathe your dog, making sure they’re clean and well-washed, before clipping their nails, clipping tidying up their coats, checking their ears for those rogue and uncomfortable hairs, and giving them a general tidy up.

Dogs with a non-shedding coat can also benefit from our hand stripping service, which removes the dead hair from the top layer of their coat to bring back that gleam. Of course, you’re the boss – so you can mix and match services, and choose for yourself what you think your dog needs or would enjoy.

Years of Experience

If you’re going to have your dogs treated to a full groom while they’re at Fairview, you probably want to be sure that you’re turning to professional staff. We’re pleased to have a number of grooming qualifications alongside 30 years of experience learning exactly what works for dogs of all types and breeds.

Of course, if you have any particular information about your dog that will help us out, we’re always all ears – and in return, we can offer you tips and advice based on our own experience and the time that we spend with your dog, if that’s something that you’re interested in!

A Flexible Approach to Dog Grooming

Every dog is unique, and so is the Fairview full grooming service in Selby. While this is available to dogs that are staying in our boarding kennels, other dogs are more than welcome to come in purely for grooming. We can also be flexible with regards to the specific grooming services that you choose, so if your dog simply needs a trim or a bath we’ll be more than happy to help out.

This ties in to our overall commitment to be flexible for the dog owners that we serve; we know that you all have busy lives, so if we can help out by making the process less complicated and adapting to your schedule, we will always see what we can do.

If you think that your dog could benefit from the services that we have on offer, why not get in touch today?
