How Do Dog Groomers Get Dogs So Fluffy?
When your dog returns from a trip to its groomer, it looks so clean, lush, and fluffy, it can be difficult to believe it’s the same pet that you dropped off! Groomers do a wonderful job of getting your pet looking and feeling its best.
So, how do they do it, and is it possible to get the same, fabulous results in your own home? It all comes down to love, care, time, and using professional quality products for dog grooming.
Here’s a look at some of the steps groomers take to ensure your dog looks fantastically fluffy.
They use the right shampoo for the right coat
Dogs have their own natural oils that help keep their skin and coat healthy. If your dog isn’t groomed regularly, however, it can cause discomfort, odours and can lead to skin issues. Experts recommend that your dog be groomed either at home or by a professional on a regular basis, depending on the type of coat they have.
Sometimes groomers need to achieve that full coat look, especially when scissoring or shaping the coat. Good groomers always start with the best shampoo to achieve this. Plush Puppy Natural Body Building Shampoo is specifically formulated with organic ingredients like wheat protein and wheat starch to build a thicker appearance in your dog’s coat. It’s best used on full coated breeds, as well as breeds that like to shed those big double coats.
If your dog has a coarser coat like a Terrier’s that looks best with added texture, Plush Puppy Texture + Shampoo is best. Full of specific, natural ingredients like Juniper Fruit and St John’s Wart Leaf, this shampoo creates a true terrier coat.
Groomers use products that detangle
Getting all the tangles out of your dog’s coat regularly is a must. A matted coat where the dog’s hair sticks together in tangled clumps pulls at their skin when you try to brush them and can cause discomfort and pain. Not only can it put the dog off grooming, but the groomer is often left with little choice but to shave the coat. This is not an option any groomer takes lightly.
In order to avoid this, it’s best to brush your dog’s coat regularly, some coats you g=can do this weekly but some do require daily brushing. Be sure to choose the best brush for your dog’s coat and comfort. A good brush should go all the way to the skin without irritating it.
In order to eliminate any tangles and matted hair that may be present, groomers use dog grooming products such as Plush Puppy O.M.G Grooming Spray. This product is perfect for any coat that needs to be dematted and detangled. It allows you to easily brush or comb through your dogs’ coat so that grooming doesn’t cause them any pain. Apply this product to a dry coat, spraying evenly, and either brush or comb it through. OMG will not build up on the coat nor leave a greasy residue.
Making the job easier – Drying
As part of the grooming service salons will blow-dry the coat. Reasons for this are aplenty. One main one is some coats smell damp if left to dry naturally. This can potentially lead to other skin and coat issues down the track. Groomers blow your dog’s coat dry to achieve that ultra-fluffy look that’s full of body. They use special dryers built for treating pets. Groomers also use particular products that help with the drying process but also leave the coat in wonderful condition, and now you can use them, too! Plush Puppy FAST Blow Dry Spray helps reduce drying time, whilst also offering protection against the heat and drying process.
Groomers add sparkle, shine, puff, and texture
Finally, you can add those beautiful finishing touches at the end of your dog grooming session for that extra “wow” factor! Plush Puppy Pixie Dust is a sparkling finishing powder that allows your dog’s coat to reflect light for a glimmering, healthy appearance. And for dogs like Terriers that require even more texture to their coat before and during hand stripping or carding, Powder Puff Terrier a texturising powder that helps you get the job done quickly.
Keeping your dog’s coat clean, tangle-free, and looking sharp is not only necessary for their good health but gives them that incredible fluffy look you seek. By using professional products for dog grooming in your home you can attain fabulous results too!
