When it comes to pet ownership, the potential owner must first understand their full responsibilities before bringing home a new pet. This way, the owner is not disappointed and the pet is not neglected or heart broken when it is given away. To make sure that one is ready for a dog of this breed, one must understand that there is more to taking care of it then just feeding it. It is essential that proper Boston Terrier grooming is given and if at all possible, make sure that it is the owner giving it.
What makes the grooming process of this breed so easy is that the Boston Terrier is a shorthaired breed, which means that you really can groom it yourself. By taking care of the Boston Terrier grooming process yourself, you are able to save hundreds of dollars a year and also add a little bit of one on one time with your pup which means extra bonding for the two of you and there is nothing better then that.
There are a lot of breeds that need to be taken to a professional on a regular basis for hair cuts and long and hard brushing, but the Boston Terrier grooming job is so simple, it can be done right at home. The short coat of the dog still needs brushed though in order to help relax the animal and to get out any hair that is about to fall out all over your couch. Remember, the Boston Terrier does shed so the more you brush, the less you will have to clean up around your house.
Make sure that a bath is given when needed along with careful clipping of the nails. The importance of proper nail clipping cannot be stressed enough because nails that grow too long can hurt the dog and nails cut too short will also cause a lot of damage. Also, you will want to make sure that the dog has its faced wiped down daily to prevent build up of the slobber that they seem to get all over themselves at times.
Simply take a damp cloth or rag and wipe down the face of your pet because they do tend to get a little messy. And do not forget to clip the nails because nails that grow too long cannot only hurt you, but your pet as well.
You do not want your pet discouraged so plan it out to where it is as enjoyable as possible for your pet. Make the moment all about him or her as if they were visiting the day spa.
Remember, there is more to grooming your pet yourself then just saving a few bucks. By taking a little bit of time out of your schedule, you are giving your pet the time he or she really needs from you. Speaking of time, you may very well want to consider marking your calendar or memo pad as to when the next grooming session is so that you do not miss out on it.
And since our lives seem to get busier and busier every day, you may want to consider marking your calendar for when you are to groom your dog again so that you do not forget.
