The humanization of pets involves a variety of experiences and products, among them the services and equipment available to owners for keeping their canine companions looking and feeling clean and fresh.

One option is to visit a well-educated, professional groomer at a salon, where dogs can be thoroughly pampered and emerge ready to compete for a ribbon at a local show. Another is a mobile grooming service, but that convenience comes with a noticeable cost ($76.25 per hour on average in the U.S., according to Groomer to Groomer magazine) and requires a flexible schedule (setting up a multiple-hour window for when the services are to be performed).

Spending that much money and time for routine maintenance of skin, hair and teeth might not be feasible on a regular basis—or even necessary. Thanks to manufacturers and retailers, dog owners have a range of products at their disposal they can buy and use themselves to make their pets the envy of the block (or the dog park).

Lightweight shears are just the thing for a quick trim and to thin out a thick mane. And that at-home cut should come with an accompanying shampoo and brushing. Several shampoos address itching, shedding and dandruff, while brushes are designed to aid in the removal of loose hair and contribute to a shiny coat by distributing a dog’s natural oils.

As for nails, clippers are one way to go. There’s also a rechargeable, rotary-style device that’s not nearly as stressful on the dog (or owner) as it gently grinds each nail, smoothing out pointy and rough edges for a fast pet pedicure.

By guiding customers to a few trusty tools and other grooming-related products, retailers can feel good knowing that dogs everywhere will be looking good.
