Grooming Tips for your ESA Dog

Paying for the grooming of your emotional support dog every five to six weeks becomes very costly. It is better to groom your ESA dog yourself. The saved money can be used on superior dog food or regular checkups with the vet. Grooming your ESA dog keeps him healthy. When you are grooming your dog, you are not only keeping his ears, skin, teeth, coat, and feet healthy but you are also becoming familiar with your dog's body.

This will help you to notice any usual thing that needs the attention of a veterinarian. Before you dive into your ESA dog grooming, you should know that keeping an ESA dog requires a legit esa letter issued from a state-licensed LHMP.  Here are some of the tips that make you a competent and confident dog groomer.

The first tip is to be patient and use lots of treats. Keep grooming fun or positive, and if needed take your ESA dog to a professional groomer. Remember! You don’t need any ESA registration for that. Dogs can sense the stress of their owners so make sure that you are calm and relaxed. Pay attention to your dog’s reaction. Be extra cautious when using nail clippers and scissors. With patience and kindness, your dog will get accustomed to the grooming process and feel more comfortable.

Don’t Wait to Start your ESA dog Grooming

If you have a puppy, then start grooming it as early as possible. This will make your ESA dog well-behaved and help you to avoid injuries and mistakes. If you can not do it by your own then take help from state-licensed LHMP and have a legit emotional support animal letter.


Unless your ESA dog has gotten into something dirty and smelly, he will need to be bathed only every 2- 3 months. Daily bathing can make his skin dry by stripping the natural oils from his coat. Use a shampoo that is specifically made for dogs. Don’t use human shampoo as it can be too harsh for the skin of your cute little puppy. Whenever you are bathing, avoid getting water and shampoo directly getting in the mouth, ears, and nose of your puppy.


Regular brushing helps to get rid of dry and dead skin, removes dead hair, and helps you become familiar with your ESA dog body. You should brush your ESA dog every few days. Choose the right brush. If you are brushing for general purposes then use a pinhead brush, brush like a comb, or a Zoom Groom. If you are planning to remove the hair mats and dead coat of your dog then use a universal slicker brush or shredding blade.

Keep the ESA dog’s ears inside the surface clean as your dog will not only feel good but it will also prevent ear infections. Also check the ears for fleas, wood tricks, or anything unusual. Use a cotton ball with an ear-cleaning solution. Don’t use water as it does not easily evaporate.


Regularly check your ESA dog nails. Ideally, nails should be cut after every 3 to 6 weeks depending on growth.

Regular nail clipping reduces the torn nails’ risk and also saves wear and tear on your carpeting and floors.
