A haircut is an important part of your responsibilities as a pet owner. You can keep your dog healthy and clean with a simple dog grooming routine. You just need to have a dog grooming kit that you use to take good care of your dog.
Here are the basic supplies you'll need to trim your dog's hair:
Consumables for bathing
Dog Shampoo – There are many types and brands of dog shampoo to choose from. There are also special-purpose shampoos like medicated shampoo, lice shampoo, and more.
Hair conditioner – this is necessary for dogs with long hair to easily remove tangles when combing after bathing.
Toothbrush and Toothpaste – If you want to keep your dog's teeth clean and healthy, you should buy a toothbrush and toothpaste specially designed for dogs. Never make the mistake of brushing your dog's teeth with human toothpaste as your dog will not regurgitate it and it can have harmful effects.
Consumables for combing hair
Choose a universal hairbrush for your dog, especially when the hair is the crown and main attraction. Brushing your hair regularly can help reduce hair loss and keep your dog's hair in good condition. It will also help you to have a flea comb if needed.
Scissors – Good scissors will come in handy for trimming excess hair or hair on your dog's legs, tail, paws, or whiskers.
