Grooming Your West Highland White

WestiesWarning, Are your instruments clean?. Do you visit a professional to have your Westie groomed and clipped? Are they sterilizing the equipment? IF NOT WHY NOT ! Stop the spread of deadly diseases...

Its a sad fact that many so called professionals do not clean the grooming tools after each dog. If the previous dog has some skin problem, this can quite easily be passed on you your Westie.

It is not necessary to have your Westie fully groomed regularly, if you continue to use thinning scissors and a quick trim, you can keep his coat reasonably short.

Avoid having your Westie fully cut in winter time, they can quickly catch a cold. This job is best left to the hot summer months, when your Westie will appreciate the loss of some heat.

Note: Unlike the medieval Barber, who not only cut hair and gave shaves, but also practiced surgery and pulled teeth, You should not let a groomer do anything other than cut hair!. Some are setting them selves up as vet's and performing other services like emptying anal glands. Don't Let them !
