To help get your pets into the holiday spirit, PetSmart, the largest pet specialty retailer in Canada, recommends booking a holiday grooming session. Having your pet looking their holiday best, no matter the occasion, can be a fun addition to celebrating the season. Below are some insights when considering a holiday groom.

When to groom your pet

PetSmart suggests that grooming be done every four to six weeks as it is essential to a pet' overall wellbeing. Whether it's a haircut or nail trim, proper grooming can provide various essential health benefits.

Different options

A full grooming session can take between two to four hours and will have your pet feeling their best. It includes a relaxing bath, brush, a tailored haircut and blow dry. If you don't have time for a full grooming session, PetSmart recommends a 15 to 20 minute touch up package to clean up the fur on your dog's paws and tail This can be done while you shop in store for holiday toys, treats and other goodies.

Don't forget to accessorize

PetSmart offers a glittering array of festive accessories. Elevate your dog's groom with the new Merry and Bright collection. Try adding a Holiday Dog Collar, a Holiday LED Light Neck Tie or a Holiday Bow to bring the whole look together.
