The Grooming Process

In order for your pet to have a regular ‘routine’, You Dirty Dog Pet Grooming uses the following procedure to insure your pet has a through, safe and enjoyable grooming session.
  1. The pet is checked over for mats, skin conditions and parasites.
  2. The pet is then bathed in the appropriate shampoo. The most common shampoo we use is aloe vera based. This a great over all skin and hair cleaner. Other shampoos are used based on skin condition, if there are mats, any parasites and the amount of dirt in the coat.
  3. While the pet is in the tub, the anal sacs are express, ears are cleaned and when possible, the nails are cut.
  4. A cream rinse conditioner is applied. This helps with dematting, if there is any. And it also protects the coat while the pet is being blow dried.
  5. If the pet will allow us, blow drying is done on the grooming table. This helps loosen and remove most mats and helps the coat to lay correctly for the finish grooming process.
  6. Usually at this point the pet is given a break and placed back in their room to finish drying.
  7. After the pet is completely dry, the coat is brushed out to finish removing mats and the final trim is finished. Bows and bandana’s are optional and the pet is ready to go home.
