How long have you been a groomer and what qualifications do you have?
I’ve been a groomer for 5 years, and hold the Level 3 Introductory In Dog Grooming. Currently, I am working towards the rest of the Level 3 Diploma.
Can you tell us about the products you use?
I use natural products by Earthbath shampoos – hypoallergenic so no reactions, deep cleaning and animal cruelty free.
How often would you recommend for dogs to be groomed?
Completely depends upon the dog. A usual grooming schedule for a long coated dog would be between 6-10 weeks for good routine and maintenance. Also the more frequently the grooms the less stressful for the dog as they become used to the process.
Can short hair dogs benefit from being groomed?
Absolutely. Bathing and brushing helps to remove the dead coat as well as unblocking pores and encouraging the release and production of natural oils leaving a healthy, glossy coat.
Any products you can recommend for sensitive or dry skin?
For sensitive skin use a fragrance free shampoo. Earthbath fragrance free is a great one. And for dry skin an Aloe Vera and tea tree shampoo. Such as Earthbath hot spot relief.
