I can’t seem to get on top of fleas on my dog. What’s your advice?
Fleas live mainly on the ground so, not only do the fleas on your dog need to be eliminated, but also those in their environment. This is a three-pronged attack. Firstly we groom your dog in flea treatment shampoo that will kill all the fleas on the dog. Then we can treat your dog with an ongoing monthly flea preventative that breaks the life cycle of fleas. Lastly, the area where your dog lives must be treated to kill flea eggs on the ground.
How often should I book for a dog nail clip?
All dogs’ nails grow at different rates depending on the dog’s environment, breed and age. Nail trimming should be done regularly to avoid scratching, overgrown and broken nails. If you are looking for experts in clipping dogs nails, call us.
I never clean my dog’s ears. Can you help?
If you are in Geelong and surrounds and are looking to have your dog ears cleaned, look no further than our service. We can make sure your dogs ears are cleaned thoroughly and can then avoid any further ear problems.
My dog hates having a bath. Can you help?
At Stylin’ Dogs we pride ourselves on caring for every dog we deal with. We can help by gently training your dog over a period of time to enjoy having a bath. We do this by making the bath a pleasant experience for your dog with warm water, pampering and talking and, at the end, a doggie treat.
My dog’s coat is knotted and matted. How can I take care of it during dog grooms?
Dogs must be regularly brushed, particularly long haired dogs. We can advise on the right brush and technique to get rid of tangles and matting in your dog’s fur.
