Walk and Talk Series | Winter Grooming Tips

Last Sunday we held our February Fetch & Follow walk around east London's Victoria Park, joined by expert groomer Serena from Lead the Walk. While the dogs played we discussed all things grooming related.
Below are Serena's Top Tips for keeping your dogs fur looking its best during the winters months.
  • Before washing your dog, make sure that you’ve de-matted their coat first, as mats will tighten when immersed in water, making them more difficult to remove afterwards.

  • Dried sleep and gunk is easier to remove from the corner of your dogs eye when wet. Instead of trying to remove when dry or resorting to scissors, gently run a little warm water from a shower head over your dogs muzzle or use a moist cotton wool pad to soften the gunk. Once wet, gently and slowly use your finger or a clean damp face cloth to remove the offending gunk.

  • With any new puppy, get them used to you touching their legs, feet and tail, as well as standing on a table and running your fingers between their teeth and gums. This will benefit you, your groomer and your vet as your puppy gets older as they will not find this activity unusual or frightening.

  • When using eye and ear wipes, make sure you use a separate wipe for each side even if the wipe appears clean to avoid transferring bacteria from one to the other.

  • Feed your dog the best quality dog food you can afford as this will not only improve their digestion and overall health but improve the condition their skin and coat too.

  • Fetch and Follow | Walk and Talk | February

    Here at Fetch and Follow a daily dog walk is an integral part of our routine come sun, rain and even snow (and it also happens to be our favourite part!). Having a dog opens a world of opportunity everyday with a new adventure every time you head out together. 

    However we understand that at this time of year due to the weather, a post dog walk bath is often in order due to all the wet and muddy fun which has been had. With this in mind we are excited to announce that for our February walk (which will take place on Sunday 17th February) we will be joined by the talented groomer Serena from Lead the Walk , who will be on hand to give some expert tips on how to look after your dog furs during the winter months.

    Lasting for one hour, dogs and their owners will get together for an intimate walk with each owner receiving a Fetch and Follow Doggie Bag themed to the walk (this month will include grooming essentials)

    The walks are free to attend but spaces are limited so please click HERE to book your space
