We like them to look and feel clean
· We don’t want them to smell
· Grooming our dog gives us pleasure and relaxes us
· It helps get rid of parasites
· They look nice when they are well groomed
· They are a breed that needs to be groomed a certain way to look right
· If they have long hair clipping them off short keeps them cool.
· Clipping them makes them easier to wash and look after.
· It helps to keep their skin healthy
· It’s a way to show we care about them, and to bond with our dog
