Lakeside Grooming is experienced in most every breed.
I wont be arrogant enough to say I have groomed every single breed out
there, but with 20 plus years experience, it's pretty close.
Below are answers to basic grooming questions - no
matter what the breed, coat, or size. Please feel free to
any specific questions you may have regarding your dog.
When should I start bringing my puppy in for
It is a good idea to bring your pup in
for his first grooming between 3-6 months old. It will help introduce them to the grooming
process, and socialize them with people and other dogs.
How often should I groom my dog?
No matter what the breed, you should take your dog in for a
grooming at minimum four times a year (that is every 12 weeks - Winter, Spring,
Summer, and Fall). If you prefer a higher maintenance clip, or have a dog
prone to matting or shedding, then I recommend more frequent visits.
Regular grooming is recommended to keep your dog's coat and skin in the best
condition possible, plus it socializes your pet and gets them used to being
brushed, bathed, and handled.
Of course, you may choose to bring your dog in for regularly
scheduled appointments every 4, 6 or 8 weeks, depending on your preference. If
you like your dog extra clean (like me) or if you have a higher-maintenance clip
on your dog, regularly scheduled appointments are the most convenient way to go.
