Grooming Your Dog at Home Review

Have you ever stopped to add up the amount you are spending per year on having your dog groomed professionally?  Frightening isn’t it.

Now work out how much that comes to over the term of the average lifespan of a dog.

It takes you through all the steps needed to be able to manage dog grooming from home. And if you have a dog that is nervous around grooming clippers or hair dryers in a salon then grooming him from home can certainly make a difference to his comfort level.
