During the rainy season, it’s essential to take extra care of your pet dog’s grooming routine to keep them clean, comfortable, and healthy. Here are some Grooming Tips During Rainy Season to help you stay informed and careful.


A regular and careful Grooming can save your dog from attack of unwanted parasites and help them stay as healthy as during others months of the year.

2) Trim the fur:

If your dog has long hair, consider getting their fur trimmed to a manageable length. Long fur tends to get matted and takes longer to dry. Trimming their fur will make it easier to maintain and keep them clean.

3)Dry your dog thoroughly:

After outdoor walks or if your dog gets wet, make sure to dry them thoroughly using a towel or a pet dryer. Moisture trapped in their fur can lead to skin irritation and unpleasant odors. Pay special attention to their paws, ears, and underbelly.

4) Paw care:

During rainy weather, your dog’s paws can get muddy and collect debris. Wipe their paws with a damp cloth or use pet-friendly wet wipes to remove dirt and prevent infections. Trim the hair between their paw pads to avoid matting and accumulation of mud.

Moisture from rain can cause ear infections in dogs. Clean your dog’s ears regularly with a veterinarian-recommended ear cleaner. Gently wipe the outer part of the ear using a cotton ball or pad. Avoid inserting anything deep into the ear canal.

6) Keep nails trimmed:

Long nails can become more problematic during the rainy season as they can get caught in wet surfaces or increase slipping. Trim your dog’s nails regularly or consult a professional groomer if you’re not confident doing it yourself.

If your dog gets dirty during walk, give them a bath using a mild, dog-specific shampoo. Avoid bathing them too frequently as it can strip the natural oils from their coat. Use lukewarm water and dry them thoroughly afterwards.
