Your Aussie Pooch Mobile dog wash groomer will carefully inspect your dog’s coat and may recommend grooming and trimming to be done. This is to ensure your dog stays comfortable with less hair around their face and feet. Having grooming and trimming done can also help to avoid matting in their coat and ensures they stay looking and feeling superb.
A basic brush of your dog will be included in the Classic Hydrobath Service. This helps to identify if more work needs to be carried out on your dog’s coat, if so your groomer will let you know and quote you accordingly. Brushing helps to provide an overall massage and also helps to remove light shedding and loosen dirt and grit. The time it takes and price for each service varies on the size, breed and condition of your dog.
This is the perfect option if your dog does not need a full clip. Gently grooming and trimming around your dog’s face will help you see those beautiful puppy eyes and will also help your pooch to see easier too. Trimming around their feet will help keep their paws free of debris allowing them to move more comfortably.

Tips for brushing your dog in between baths
Although your Aussie Pooch Mobile dog groomer is able to thoroughly groom your dog, you may find it is also necessary to groom your dog in between baths. This will further help with the above when it comes to your dog’s best well being. Here are some tips for you to try…
- Create a routine. A routine negates the act of having to will or motivate yourself to do something. Setting time a side at the same time once or twice a week to brush your dog will help put your dog and you into a routine. They will love having your undivided attention and you and your dog will reap all of the benefits above for grooming them.
- Brush down and out, away from the dog’s skin. Always brush in the same direction your dog’s coat grows. It can feel very uncomfortable for your dog brushing against their coat. Especially if they have some knots or tangles.
- Be gentle. Not only will it feel a lot nicer for your pooch it will also provide a gentle massage for them which they will love! If you are too rough while brushing you may damage your dog’s coat by pulling and stretching hairs until they tangle and break.
- Take your time to untangle any tangles or knots just as you would if your comb got stuck in your child’s hair.
- If you encounter mats, apply the Static Stopper Detangler (a solution available from your local Aussie Pooch Mobile dog groomer) and leave it on for a few minutes. Then use a wide-toothed comb to get through the tangle. Mats can get close to your dog’s skin and removing them can be painful, so proceed carefully. If it is proving to be too difficult for you and your dog, you may want to call your local Aussie Pooch Mobile dog groomer and they may be able to assist you when your pooch is booked in for their next wash.
