Location

The grooming area's location is critical; it must be light, well ventilated, spacious enough to walk around in, and simple to clean.

While each groomer has their own choices for equipment, there are certain common tools and supplies that are needed to make dogs look clean and smart.

Bathing Equipment

These comprises bathing devices such as a bath faucet, shampoo, and other products. There are two types of bath tubs: the first is a walk-in bus, which is perfect for large dogs so the dog can easily walk into the bath. The second kind is the sink-style bath, which is similar to the bathtubs we have and requires the dog to be elevated into the bath.

Additional Items

There are also other smaller pieces that could be handy to have on hand.

Organization

After determining the site and acquiring the appropriate equipment, it is time to set up the grooming station. It would be a joy to work in a well-organized grooming environment, but if it has to waste twenty minutes searching for the appropriate comb, it might be less inclined and less able to groom.

Unit Four: Anatomy and Health

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn what steps should be taken in the event of accidentally cutting the dog or self.
  • Know how friction burns occur and how they can be avoided.

Anatomy

Dogs come in a variety of sizes. The Irish wolfhound, who reaches about thirty-two inches tall at the top of the shoulders (known as the withers), and the Chihuahua, which is just around five inches, are two examples.

Common Skin Diseases and Parasites

Often urge the patient to seek emergency attention if the animal shows any alarming symptoms. It is not the groomer's duty to tell the owners what is wrong with their pet, and it is certainly not the groomer's responsibility to handle the pet.

  • Allergies
  • Hormonal
  • Autoimmune skin disorders (AISD)

First Aid

Any groomer will come across a scenario where learning how to administer first aid on a pet will be helpful at any stage in their career. This type of condition often only necessitates common sense, but gaining more experience increases the animal's chances of healing or even survival.

Getting Ready

Grooming before a bath is important. Water can cause matts and tangles to tighten and worsen. As a consequence, pre-bath grooming is important for avoiding this. Particularly short-haired dogs’ benefit from cutting loose or dead fur because it helps spread their natural oils.

Selecting Shampoos and Conditioners

With so many shampoos and conditioners on the market, it can be difficult to select which to use. In most situations, an all-purpose basic shampoo would suffice.

Handling and Restraint

In general, when working with dogs, it is important to step slowly and deliberately. To avoid their blind spots, approach them from the front. Cornering, mocking, poking, or inflicting unnecessary pain on these animals may result in aggressive reactions.

Typical Restraints

Pre-Bath Clipping

Almost any breed of dog will benefit from pre-clipping. It is usually achieved if the hair is so matted that untangling is impossible, if the dog has a very thick coat, due to the dog's temperament, or simply because of the timeframe involved.

  • Rinse and condition

  • Know the methods to remove excess water from the dog prior to drying and why it is important to do this.

High Velocity

When used properly, high velocity drying provides extremely fast results of the best quality.

Stretch

To produce a quality finish, stretch drying employs soft, warm air combined with fast light brushing. Many clipper and scissor job allow the coat to be as concise as possible.

Kennel drying is typically reserved for pets with straight coats, those with overall body trims, or those with very thick coats. It can also be used on dogs that refuse to tolerate the high-velocity dryer.

Grooming Smooth Coats

Frequency

Dogs with smooth coats frequently need little more than brushing and a bath every now and then.

The coat must be washed and smell good, and it should be laid flat against the body without any loose fur.  The coat must appear shiny and healthy.

Grooming Medium Coats

Frequency

A weekly brushing and a monthly grooming session are all that is required.

The Aim

The fur must look nice, be shiny, and have a lot of body, without any loose, shedding, or dead hair.

De-matting

Getting rid of matts and tangles is a constant struggle for any groomer. Other than smooth-coated dogs, every coat style is vulnerable to tangling. Mats shape when the hair shaft is coated with tiny scales, and under a microscope resembles a bramble bush stem covered in tiny thorns.

Factors which cause mats:

  • a few hairs loose at a time. Sometimes, it is useful to use the pick end of the comb or a knitting needle to help loosen the mat.

Location

The grooming area's location is critical; it must be light, well ventilated, spacious enough to walk around in, and simple to clean.

While each groomer has their own choices for equipment, there are certain common tools and supplies that are needed to make dogs look clean and smart.

The second kind is the sink-style bath, which is similar to the bathtubs we have and requires the dog to be elevated into the bath.

Additional Items

There are also other smaller pieces that could be handy to have on hand.

Organization

After determining the site and acquiring the appropriate equipment, it is time to set up the grooming station. It would be a joy to work in a well-organized grooming environment, but if it has to waste twenty minutes searching for the appropriate comb, it might be less inclined and less able to groom.

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn what steps should be taken in the event of accidentally cutting the dog or self.
  • Know how friction burns occur and how they can be avoided.

Common Skin Diseases and Parasites

Often urge the patient to seek emergency attention if the animal shows any alarming symptoms. It is not the groomer's duty to tell the owners what is wrong with their pet, and it is certainly not the groomer's responsibility to handle the pet.

  • Autoimmune skin disorders (AISD)

Grooming before a bath is important. Water can cause matts and tangles to tighten and worsen. As a consequence, pre-bath grooming is important for avoiding this. Particularly short-haired dogs’ benefit from cutting loose or dead fur because it helps spread their natural oils.

Selecting Shampoos and Conditioners

With so many shampoos and conditioners on the market, it can be difficult to select which to use. In most situations, an all-purpose basic shampoo would suffice.

Handling and Restraint

In general, when working with dogs, it is important to step slowly and deliberately. To avoid their blind spots, approach them from the front. Cornering, mocking, poking, or inflicting unnecessary pain on these animals may result in aggressive reactions.

  • Know the methods to remove excess water from the dog prior to drying and why it is important to do this.
  • Learn how coat type and the condition of the coat and skin affect the drying techniques and equipment that can be used.
