Your dog's summer grooming essentials

Your dog's coat, skin and general wellbeing needs you more than ever as we fast approach the summer months. To cover skin and coat health checks, allergen and irritant prevention, seasonal flareups and more, schedule their summer grooming at K9 Anytime now to avoid missing out on the care their coat needs this year.

  1. Regular Brushing

  • Frequency: Brush your dog daily or several times a week, depending on their coat type.

  • Benefits: Helps remove loose fur, reduces shedding, prevents matting, and keeps the coat and skin healthy.

2. Bathing

  • Frequency: Bathe your dog every 3-4 weeks, or more frequently if they get particularly dirty.

  • Benefits: Keeps your dog clean, reduces allergens, and helps control odor. Ask K9 Anytime Grooming team about hypoallergenic and detoxifying shampoos and treatments curated for your sensitive dog.

3. Haircuts

  • Frequency: Every 6-8 weeks for dogs with longer coats or those that require regular trims.

  • Benefits: Keeps the coat manageable, reduces the risk of heatstroke, and helps prevent matting.

4. Nail Trimming

  • Frequency: Every 3-4 weeks or as needed.

  • Benefits: Prevents painful overgrowth and splitting, reduces the risk of injury.

5. Ear Cleaning

6. Paw Care

  • Frequency: Regularly check paws, especially after walks.

7. Hydration

  • Ensure your dog has constant access to fresh water, especially after grooming sessions or playtime.

8. Heat Protection

  • Ensure your dog has access to shade and avoid grooming during the hottest part of the day.

9. Flea and Tick Prevention

  • Ask the K9 Anytime Grooming team about our all natural flea and tick bath treatment to avoid the harsh chemical option.
