How often you have your dog washed and groomed will depend on a number of factors

1. The breed of dog,
2. The type and length of the coat
3. Whether the dog is an indoor or outdoor dog.

If the dog has a skin problem, allergies or a coat problem, it will also affect the frequency of grooming.
Whilst your dog's coat may look clean, the accumulation of dead hair and dust can lead to skin irritation.
Generally 4 – 6 weeks is recommended to maintain a
good coat. This is the same for short haired breeds too, as it is
important to keep on top of shedding.

The idea is to 'maintain' the coat, not wait until it is overgrown, matted and uncomfortable for the dog.

Pre-booking your dog's next appointment is strongly
recommended to avoid having to wait for an available appointment when
the dog needs it 'now'!

Its recommended that you should get your dog accustomed to being groomed as soon as possible.

Normally from the time your puppy has been
vaccinated is safe. Having its ears cleaned, nails clipped and
generally getting accustomed to the noises of being groomed is an
important step in your dogs enjoyment of being groomed.
