Coming Home After Camping? Get Dog Grooming Services

Camping with your dog is a great way to bond and enjoy an exciting adventure together. Another benefit is not having to hire a dog sitter or use a boarding facility. When you finish camping and are ready to come home, you may want to schedule dog grooming services beforehand so it's available when you return. 


While camping, you may expect your dog to get dirty. Washing your dog in a campground shower is risky because you might find it tough to dry them off before they run around. A wet dog will get dirtier faster than a dry one, so it might be best to avoid washing them. Bringing your dog to a professional groomer allows for thorough bathing where they will stay clean.

Going through this process before coming home will help you avoid getting your home dirty.


The wilderness is where you will find a wide variety of pests. Some of these pests can affect your dog, including fleas and ticks. While you can use flea treatment to minimize issues, you may run into ones resistant to your medication. When you do not feel comfortable removing ticks on your own, you can get a groomer to remove them safely.

Depending on the length of your camping trip, you may not know whether fleas have gotten on your dog. Luckily, you can get a flea bath in case to make sure they do not get in your home.


Trimming your dog's nails can make it more comfortable for your dog to move around. After a long camping trip, you may notice that their nails need a trim. A dog groomer can provide this service and give them a thorough cleaning because camping can make them dirty.

Another benefit of getting this service right away is to keep sharp or jagged nails from scratching the furniture and flooring in your home.


Cleaning your dog's ears is something you may do on occasion. Camping will likely make them dirtier than usual, and it puts them in an area where they can get ear mites. Ideally, you want to keep your dog away from other dogs and wild animals who might be affected. A dog groomer can clean your dog's ears and let you know whether they see any ear mite concerns.

Two viable options are washing your dog at the campground or at home after coming back. However, you will get better results by seeing a dog groomer on your way back from camping.
