Do you have a dog breed that needs clipping every month or so? it is hard to beat that professional looking hairstyle when you pick up your pooch from the groomers. However, if you sit down to add up the cost, over a few months, not to mention years, you might be staggered to see the totaled figure.
And letting the hair grow a little longer between salon visits is not the answer. Neglected dog coats usually lead to matted hair which means that the time spent clipping ends up being longer than usual.
