Getting Ready for the Party Season

The party season is upon us and we all know it’s one time we want to get our hair and makeup done to look our best for the staff party and family photos!

And why should it be any different for the precious pets in our lives? No-one wants their beloved looking matted and scruffy beneath the Christmas tree!

Grooming is important all year round for dogs. It provides lots of health benefits for them which shouldn't be overlooked. Brushing your dog ventilates their coat, helping it grow strong and healthy as well as removing old, damaged hair. It also makes sure that your dog’s skin can breathe and keeps down the level of grease in their coat, which can cause blocked pores, irritation and lots of skin problems. 

Not only that, running a brush through their coat at home will act as a nice massage, promoting healthy blood circulation, and let's face it, everyone loves a massage! Grooming is also a great bonding activity, the more regularly you do it, the more they’ll get used to it and it should become a soothing relaxing experience for you both.

If you want to add a little more festive feeling to your bonding session this Christmas, check out the range of seasonal scents from the Groom Professional range. There’s the ‘almost good enough to eat’ Christmas Cookie, the ‘festive favourite’ Cinnamon Sugar and the ‘Forest Fresh’ Winter Walks

Although there is a lot you can do at home to look after your pet, especially with professional grooming products like brushes, trimmers, and shampoos, readily available, attending a professional groomer has additional benefits.  

Why should I spend the money on a professional Groomer?


Booking regular grooming appointments for your dog doesn’t just keep them pretty, it keeps them healthy and happy. Here are five benefits of professional dog grooming:

  • Grooming maintains a healthy coat and skin, with glowing healthy locks.
  • Regular nail trims helps reinforce healthy foot structure and posture, reduces the risk of infection, as well as helping to keep the nails short, avoiding possible tendon problems.
  • Your pet will look and smell great, with so many professional shampoos and colognes available now, even for sensitive skin, there really is no reason to have a wiffy dog!
  • Regular visits can result in early detection of any health issues with ears, skin, teeth and more, which can then be followed up with a vet.
  • A shiny, healthy and properly brushed coats will shed less, hopefully limiting the use of the sticky roller on your clothes every morning before work!

But, how do you go about finding a new groomer?

  • Word of mouth - Ask others who they would recommend. People are usually happy to share their thoughts on the service they have received - good or bad!
  • Ask, Ask, Ask - Ask prospective groomers about their experience. Find out how long they have been grooming, what breeds they specialise in and what products they use.
  • Tell them about your dog – The breed and type of coat your dog has and see if they are familiar with this type of breed.
  • Professional Development - Check if they have relevant qualifications and if they undergo regular refresher training.

Once you have chosen your new groomer, it's time to get your pooch booked in ahead of the Christmas rush to make sure they are looking their best for the big man in the red suit arriving!
