Grooming for Dogs

Grooming your dog performs two functions. The obvious one is to keep him looking, and smelling, acceptable to you and to other people. The second one is just as important. Grooming, of a very different sort, between dogs establishes and maintains the relative status of each dog. By daily grooming you are telling the dog, in the most gentle terms, that you are in charge. The whole ritual of insisting that you dog stands while you brush and comb him emphasizes that when push comes to shove, what you say goes. There is no more important lesson in dog training. Grooming your dogs should also be an enjoyable interaction between dog and owner.
