I believe grooming comes from internal healing, but how can you heal without feeling confident externally? Just ask yourself, why do you wash your face before going outside? It’s because you believe that external grooming can uplift your confidence and outlook.
Similarly, your pet, be it your dog or your cat, needs external grooming along with an equal dose of love, care, and validation. My dog, Benji, loves his grooming sessions; he enjoys being pampered. I guess I love smelling him and playing with him even more!
Even my dream of getting groomed together with my furry best friend was an eternal dream. Hence, along with buying premium dog food, I also visit pet grooming centers in Kolkata every month for his health and well-being.

How to Groom Your Dog And Pets?
Sorry to disappoint, but there is no one-size-fits-all answer. First, know that grooming is a necessity and not a luxury. When you bring your dog home, you should be well aware of taking care of his hygiene, food, and well-being.
Simply put, it’s like the reason why you take a bath every day after coming from the office, jogging, or the gym. The reason why you wear clean clothes to the office. It’s all a matter of hygiene, looking good, feeling healthy, and being neat.
You can groom your dog at home by first brushing him, then shampooing, and making sure to dry his fur properly. However, I would advise you to consult with a vet about his home grooming procedure because it varies with the dog’s breed.
For us, Benji is a 9-month-old Golden Retriever, which means he is a double-coated dog and needs proper grooming. I’m busy with my work, and it’s not possible for me to take care of his well-being, so I always choose a professional.
Moreover, my mother brushes him twice a week as he has thicker coats, and brushing is necessary, or else I’ve seen his fur getting tangled. Now, if you have a curly-wavy coated dog breed like Poodles, then you need to shampoo them three times a week.
Hence, it all depends on the dog’s breed and their specific requirements. You should always consult a vet before opting for home grooming or professional grooming. Additionally, I believe professional grooming is important in addition to home grooming because they are experienced and have the right tools.
