Grooming your dog in winter, must or bust?

There’s a misconception that your dog does not need to be groomed in the winter months, especially if they stay indoors. However, this is not true. In fact it becomes more important to groom your pet in winter as their long fur gets matted due to the cold, wet conditions. You may find that by not grooming your pets’ long, thick or double-coated fur it can become a curse if not maintained properly. Fur that’s matted doesn’t insulate or provide warmth; instead, it provides discomfort, pain, and hot spots and can lead to infections below the skin. Grooming then becomes essential and isn’t just for a beautiful dog but it’s also crucial for your dog’s good health.

With winter fast approaching, it’s essential that you get your furry friends groomed and ready for the cold months ahead! Here are a few grooming parlours in and around Cape Town.
