For the majority of human beings, going for a shower or bath is a calming experience. But for our pets it can be anything but unwinding. They always sprint around in the other direction of the tub when hearing the noise, the cleansing and suds. Grooming your pet is a necessity that not only keeps their coat healthy, but also reduces allergies and possibility of infection and lessens the spread of dirt and germs throughout your house. While your furry pal may resist to the idea of the bath, as a pet owner it is your task to make it as positive and easy-going as possible for your pet.
