Whether you owned and operate a cocker spaniel –a high-maintenance breed or a smooth-coated dog that tidies up quickly, your dog will require regular grooming. Such methods are best left to a professional groomer if your dog is a poodle or other type that needs to have comprehensive clipping and styling done. In the majority of cases, dog grooming is fairly simple and can be done successfully at house with simply a couple of easy tools. For the majority of types, just 2 standard cleaning tools are required for: a soft wire slicker brush and a metal comb for grooming.
