The holidays are around the corner, and you will want your dog looking its best for your trip to Grandma's house. Our team at Hot Diggity Dog Resort is your best source for dog grooming for residents in Escondido and San Marcos, CA. We have gathered some great tips to keep your pup groomed for the holidays.

Brush Your Pet’s Teeth Daily

Don't overlook the importance of a quality toothbrush. Use toothpaste that is designed for dogs, since human toothpaste can be quite dangerous. It will help keep your pet’s breath fresh and prevent the development of periodontal disease. Daily dental care is ideal but at least a few times per week is also acceptable.

Nail Trimming

Dogs need their nails trimmed just like humans. Some breeds will need one every couple of weeks, while others can go without for longer. It can be difficult to trim your dog's nails, especially if you have never done it. Feel free to bring your pooch to our office if you need some help.

Brush Your Pet’s Fur Frequently

Coat brushing and hair trimming are helpful to remove dirt and debris from your dog's coat. Your pet will also smell better and the coat will be shinier and healthier. Your pet will be in a better mood at the next grooming appointment. A de-shed is great for the overall health of your pet.

Clean The Ears

Don't forget to keep your dog's ears clean, since it can help prevent ear infections. Dogs should have their ears cleaned once per month. It is more vital if your dog has floppy ears.
