Learning how to groom a dog varies a bit with each dog breed. Fortunately pet grooming for Weimaraners is easy, because they are low maintenance dogs!
Pet grooming at home is more than just brushing your dog. Dog grooming also includes bathing your dog, hair clipping and cutting, trimming dog nails, brushing dogs teeth, cleaning dog ears and dog eye care.
When you brush and comb your Weimaraner regularly, you will eliminate a lot of loose hair and get rid of much of the dirt and mud that your Weimaraner picks up outside.
And grooming dogs with short hair, like Weimaraners, is easy! All you need to get started are some simple pet grooming products, a good book about Weimaraners and a little time.
