We specialise in a range of mobile pet care services to ensure general cleanliness of your dog by attending to their individual needs and reducing the chance of your dog encountering health problems in the future. While it is important to maintain your dog’s coat, a number of factors will influence how frequently your dog needs to be washed and groomed, these include:
- The size and breed of dog
- The type and length of the coat
- Whether the dog is an indoor or an outdoor dog
The frequency of grooming will also depend on any allergies, skin or coat irritations your dog may experience. Don’t be fooled by the shine in your dog’s coat. Accumulation of dry and brittle hair and dust increases the possibility of skin irritation and flea infestations.

It’s important to be on top of shedding, so even if your dog is a short-haired breed a groom every 4-6 weeks is recommended to maintain a healthy coat and improve your pampered pet’s quality of life. Don’t wait until your dog’s coat is overgrown, matted and uncomfortable. Maintenance is important to avoid your dog’s coat becoming uncomfortable. It’s important to understand that a greasy, matted coat will not only affect your dog’s looks but also there health.
To avoid the wait, pre-book your dog’s next appointment. Grooming is an essential part of your dog’s lifestyle and it’s important to make it part of their routine.
We encourage you to introduce your puppy to grooming from the time your puppy is vaccinated. Getting accustomed to the noises of being groomed, physical contact, having its ears cleaned and nails clipped is essential in ensuring your dog enjoys the grooming process. While playing with your dog it has been recommended that you simulate actions your dog groomer performs whilst your dog is being groomed. This includes playing with your dog’s ears, touch its feet, check its nails, and even check their teeth by holding the jaw and opening the mouth. Essentially, this is so your dog becomes more comfortable with these actions during their routine check-ups.
By practicing these your dog will be at ease whilst being groomed, which will make the grooming experience more enjoyable for all. Jim’s Dog Wash also provides full flea and tick treatment services taking the fuss out of staying on top of those necessary treatments that are so often easliy forgotten.
