Pets get dirty just like we do, so they need to be groomed. Grooming will include brushing your pet’s coat, trimming your pet’s fur, trimming their toenails, and giving them a bath.
Short haired dogs and cats should be brushed at least once or twice a week. If they have long hair or if they are shedding, you’ll need to brush them more often.
Bathe your dog when it’s dirty or take them to a groomer. You’ll also want to have their toenails trimmed.
Having a pet is a big responsibility. Our pets rely on us to take care of them and keep them safe. “How to Be a Responsible Pet Owner” shows how to love and respect your pet. Teach your kids what it really means to be a pet owner.
