  • Costly Mistakes Pet Owners Make (at home grooming)

    Video and story

    Lansing, MI - Pet owners know, it's easy to rack up big bills or get overwhelmed by all of the products available for your dog.

    But, it doesn't have to be that way. Some local experts say think ahead, and you can have a healthy dog and a happy wallet too.

    Cori Cole has been grooming dogs for almost 30 years. She says if you're considering a certain breed, think about the cost of grooming.

    "Because of their size and their type of coat, the golden doodles especially they, they are really expensive," says Cole, owner of the Elegant Pooch Pet Salon in Lansing.

    The groomer says it is worth it to buy a quality shampoo and conditioner for at-home grooming.

    "A lot of people think, 'oh I use a really good shampoo for myself, I will just use that on my dog,'" she says, "but, we have a different ph than dogs do."

    Bad at-home grooming can leave your dog's hair matted, which can end up costing you big time in the long run. Always blow dry your dog if it has long hair or fur.

    With temperatures rising, you may be tempted to shave your dog to cool him off, think again...................
