We all have those days when we see a dog and we instantly want to get down there and do something nice for them. Unfortunately, there are several things that can cause us to act in this way. First, there are those times when it is just so nice to wash our dog, and there are those times when we need to be thinking about how to do it right and how to do it in such a way that it doesn’t cause pain for some poor animal.
I think I did the most for these poor animals with my dog, but they are still suffering because I forgot I had to groom them. I think I’ve really made a difference, but I’m not sure. Maybe I should learn to give a more thorough cleaning.
It’s funny you say this because one of the first things that I did for my dog was wash her all over. She had a bad infection and I was worried she would die. So I washed her all over, but what I forgot was that she had a nasty abscess. She was in so much pain I couldnt get to her so I knew I had to do something for her.
I’m not sure if this is a good thing or a bad thing. I don’t know what your dog is like without her coat, but I know that if you don’t groom her regularly, she will never get a “good” coat. So even though I wash her all over, I feel guilty about how it looks and feel like a failure.
The good thing is she looked better and I didn’t feel guilty about looking bad. It’s just a small thing that I could have done without looking bad. Of course, I still feel guilty though.
Dogs are very hard to get right. They are the perfect animal for grooming because we can groom them and they don’t seem to mind it. And because they do not have a concept of time, they do not care what I do to make their coat look good. I just think it’s cruel to tell them they look messy and dirty and not like they should be groomed.
Dogs are often seen as a “human” animal with a natural instinct of self-preservation. So when we take them outside to play, we treat them with a lot of respect. We just don’t have to worry about them looking sloppy or dirty or whatever. But in return, it’s just as important to groom them as it is to protect us from harm.
This is where the similarities between humans and dogs stop. Dogs are social, and they like to be in a pack. So if you have a dog, you will typically see them playing and interacting with each other in the same way as humans. Dogs will also want to be groomed, which would include baths and shampoos.
But that’s where the similarities end. In most cases, dogs don’t care about being groomed or having their hair brushed. They just want to live and that’s it. So what if we want them to be groomed and have their hair brushed? What if we want them to be more social and want them to be able to talk and be vocal? That’s the kind of grooming dog owners like to do, but it doesn’t actually matter to dogs.
So dog groomers are not the only grooming types. There are other people that groom dogs, and they also need to be groomed. Dogs that are groomed should be clean and shiny, and that is simply impossible for the average dog.
