Grooming your pup is important not only in the spring but throughout the year
Small breeds like those dogs adopted through LIl Paws have hair that doesn't shed, but instead grows. Dogs with hair that grows are great for people with allergies as they leave less hair about the house, but these dogs also require more trimming/grooming. Dogs like Maltese, Poodles, Bichons and Shih-Tzus are at very high risk for matting, and, left unattended for more than a few weeks, can develop significant matts. Even the smallest of matts can be very painful for a dog, as they pull against the dog's skin. Imagine having your skin pulled all the time- not fun!!
Sweet Tweety is clean and well-groomed.
Regular grooming is also important to remove hair from a dogs' ears, clean tear stains, and of course, trim nails. If you aren't able to to bathe and carefully groom your dog every four-six weeks, please make an appointment with a groomer.
