General Dog Grooming and Tidying in Selby

General dog grooming is a great way to keep your dog looking their best and, more importantly, to keep them healthy – as allowing a dog to become too untidy can cause skin problems, encourage parasites such as fleas, and stop you from noticing any health issues that your pet may have.

It is recommended that all dogs are groomed regularly, both at home and by a professional groomer who can give a more thorough tidy up. At Fairview Kennels we have a range of grooming qualifications and, crucially, years of experience working with many, many different breeds. So, when it’s time for your dog to pay a visit to a professional, we’ll be able to approach them with care as well as an understanding of their unique needs.

If your dog takes part in shows and competitions, grooming and tidying will make sure that they are ready to impress on the big day. Since proper grooming can also be very relaxing for your pet, it will not just help with their appearance but also their overall mood. This makes it a great option for a productive pampering session before any important event.

What's Included?

General dog grooming and tidying covers quite a diverse range of different processes, and can include any or all of the following:

  • Brushing, combing and removing knots from the coat
  • Removing dead hair
  • Clipping or hand stripping your dog’s hair
  • Cleaning the fur, eyes and ears
  • Dental care
  • Nail clipping
  • Checking your pet for any signs of illness

Tips for Home Grooming

While it’s recommended that you visit a professional at-least every few months, most dogs will benefit from more frequent grooming at home – not least because it’s an excellent chance for the two of you to spend some quality time together.

Remember to be gentle, to use products that are designed specifically for use on dogs, and to make it a fun experience. Keeping your pet relaxed throughout the process will help with trickier tasks such as cleaning their teeth!

For general dog grooming in Selby and the surrounding areas, we have a fully fitted grooming parlour which allows us to provide all of the vital services listed above.

The Dog Groomers that Really Get to Know Your Dog

Understandably, many owners are nervous about leaving their beloved companions with a new groomer, after-all, you want to be sure that your dog will receive the best care possible! We believe that the secret to excellent service is getting to know your pet as an individual. While all breeds have distinct requirements, the most important thing is understanding your dog’s unique temperament and needs.

By having a full chat with you before we start, the Forward Vendors team makes sure that we have a real understanding of the results that you would like to see and the way that your dog will respond to different parts of the general grooming and tidying process. After we’ve spent some time with your dog ourselves, we’ll also be able to offer advice such as the best types of product to use and grooming techniques that will be beneficial for their specific type of fur.

This means that you can maintain our professional standards for yourself when you’re back at home – and if you choose to come back to us for regular clipping and full grooming services, we’ll be able to build up a real rapport that makes the experience an enjoyable treat as well as a necessary process!
