When you’re in the business of keeping dogs clean, groomed, and looking gorgeous, having a basic dog grooming kit on hand is a wonderful tool. With a dog grooming kit, you have all your grooming gear in one easy-to-access place. You can find brushes, soaps, towels, and oils quickly and easily because you know where to look.
How do you create a dog grooming bag that works for you? What tools and supplies are must-haves when setting up your grooming kit? To help answer these questions, here’s a look at how to create a dog grooming kit that works for you.
Pick a Place to Keep Your Kit
Whether you want a mobile kit that can travel with you to pet appointments or a stationary kit that sits in a cupboard or drawer in your home, pick a place where you’ll store all your gear. Choose a location that’s spacious enough for all your supplies, easy to carry or access, durable and convenient. Likewise, look for a spot that will put all your grooming products within reach when grooming your clients’ pets.
Gather All Your Gear
Setting up your grooming kit starts with knowing the products and tools you use when you’re grooming dogs. Essentially, put them all together so that they’re easily accessible while you work. This will help in bringing together the best dog grooming kits for your pets.
Some of the typical dog grooming tools and supplies you may want include the following:
A grooming table
If you’re setting up a mobile grooming kit, think about including some sort of grooming table that will allow you to create a workspace wherever you go. This could be a folding table, an electric table or something else.
When you’re trimming pet hair, you’ll probably need both small and large clippers to groom dogs properly. Dog grooming shears can be useful for cutting fur and cutting mats in tangled fur. Decide whether you need straight, curved, blending or other types in your grooming kit.
Shampoo, conditioner and soap
It doesn’t get more basic for bath time than shampoo, conditioner and soap. These are the products you probably use to clean dogs’ hair and bodies.
Eye drops and oils
If you use some sort of eye drops or mineral oil to protect dogs’ eyes during grooming, add this to your basic dog grooming kit.
Useful for loosening wax and cleaning the ear canal, ear cleaners come in handy when grooming dogs.
If you’ll be brushing dogs’ teeth, keep a toothbrush in your grooming kit.
Pets prone to fleas may require flea spray or flea spot treatments to stay bug-free.
Cotton balls and swabs
Many groomers will use cotton balls, placed in dogs’ ears, to protect delicate ear tissues from getting water or soap inside them during a bath. Additionally, cotton swabs can be useful for gently cleaning around the ears and eyes.
Regular nail clipping is a must for pets — especially if their nails aren’t naturally whittled through walking on pavement. Most groomers need at least two pairs of dog nail clippers — a regular pair for smaller dogs and a large one for bigger dogs.
A good, absorbent towel is a must for after bath time. Pack one likeThe Absorberfrom Dog Lover’s Towel in your kit so you’ll have a fast, effective way to dry pets.
Different dogs require different brushes, depending on their fur type and coat length. Keep all your various brushes and combs stocked in your kit, too.
Adjust, As Needed
After you’ve assembled your grooming kit, give it a go on a pet you’re treating. Pay attention to how accessible your tools were: Did you need items you didn’t pack? Did you have extraneous tools? How could your kit work better for you? Adjust your kit, as needed, to create a working toolbox that serves you and your dogs well on the job. This will help prepare the best grooming kits for your dogs.

Taking care of a pet is a wonderful, rewarding responsibility that can change your life for the better. Adopt a dog, and you gain a friend for life! Are you thinking about welcoming a dog into your home? Here are some tips about what to know before adopting a dog and how to take care of a new dog:
One of the most basic practices in proper pet care is bathing — whether you’re a pet owner caring for your animal or a pet groomer who tackles professional dog bathing every day. Those who wash a dog know that the more efficient the process, the better. Any way you can add to the grooming experience is an asset for your life or business. That’s why, from having the proper dog bathing supplies to knowing what dog bathing tips matter for your pet, it’s worthwhile to think about new and better ways to bathe them.
Anyone who grooms pets knows you have to have the proper tools, especially if you’re going to achieve professional grooming results. The fact is, whether you’re combing fur or trimming nails, your task becomes simpler with professional dog grooming products that cater to the job at hand.
What are the must-haves in terms of professional dog grooming supplies? Here’s a look at top grooming products and why they are worth having:
1. Pet brushes and combs.
As a professional groomer who works with multiple breeds of dogs, you need a variety of brushes to meet a variety of needs. A good selection would include bristle brushes for most hair types, slicker brushes for detangling medium to long hair, wire pin brushes, rakes, and mat breakers, shedding tools to reduce shedding, and flea combs to spot fleas a pet may have.
2. Hair clippers.
For dogs with medium to long hair, you may need to shave or cut hair on a regular basis. Electric clippers give you a way to create a neat, uniform look. Scissors allow for tidy touchups in specific places for long hair.
To clean a dog’s coat, you need a soap-free shampoo catered to its type of fur. If you want to protect the dog from eye injury, go with a tear-free shampoo. To ease skin irritation and itching, pick an oatmeal shampoo. Other options include natural shampoos free of chemicals or medical shampoos catered to specific skin conditions.
After shampooing, you also have the option to use a conditioner to moisturize and add shine to a dog’s coat. Conditioner detangles, softens and adds beauty to a pet’s coat. Today’s market includes products that get rinsed and products that can be left on to dry.
5. The Absorber® Dog Lover’s towel.
After a pet has been washed, it’s only natural for it to want to run around and shake off. A good towel can make the drying experience less chaotic by absorbing moisture quickly and efficiently. The Absorber® Dog Lover’s Towel is a quick, easy and affordable solution that uses a sponge-like composition to pull 50 percent more water out of a dog’s coat than typical cotton or microfiber towels can. In addition, this towel can wring out almost completely dry, eliminating the need for multiple towels.
6. Nail trimmers.
From claw-style trimmers to scissor-like trimmers, there are many kinds of nail clippers on today’s market. In addition to stocking these devices, you’ll want filing tools to smooth rough edges and styptic powder to stop bleeding if you accidentally nick a pet while trimming.
7. Ear cleansers.
Use ear cleansers to rinse and clean the ear canal and/or ear medications as recommended by a veterinarian. Other helpful tools for dog ear care include cotton balls to remove debris and, for trained professionals, hemostats to pluck excess hair.
Whether you’re caring for one or more pets at home or you’re a professional groomer looking to up your game, you can’t beat the appeal of The Absorber® grooming towel.

Ready to learn more? Here’s a roundup of helpful advice for first-time dog owners, i.e. also applicable to first-time puppy owners tips.
1. There will be an adjustment period.
If you feel a little overwhelmed in the first few nights with a dog, don’t panic. It’s perfectly normal to experience an adjustment period while you and your pet get used to each other. This is the first and most important tip for first-time dog owners. If you got a puppy, you’ll have to start from scratch with house training. If you have an older dog, you’ll have to ease that dog into a life with you.
2. Start with basic needs.
Taking care of a dog starts with the essentials: food, shelter, activity and cleaning. Go through this checklist when you’re new to having an animal at home: buy dog food, a collar and leash; prepare a place for your pup to sleep; start a routine of daily walks or other activity and know how you’ll clean up
3. Find a good vet.
Just as people need doctors, pets need veterinarians to handle shots, illnesses, checkups, etc. Ask to see who fellow pet-owners recommend and talk to your vet about the best health-boosting steps you can take for your dog.
4. Bath time can be crazy.
It only takes one bath to realize that dogs love to run — everywhere — to dry themselves after getting wet. You can simplify this routine by finding an extra-absorbent, pet-friendly towel such as the Dog Lover’s Towel. This product is made to dry your pet faster, so you get less wet in the bath-time process and your house towels stay off-limits.
5. Some pets have behavior issues.
Every dog is unique, and most may have some behavior issue or another. Your pet could bark a lot, chew furniture, experience separation anxiety or even get aggressive. Be prepared for the possibilities by researching your dog’s breed, talking to your vet and staying alert to any odd behavior patterns.
6. Be patient.
Becoming a pet owner is a long-term decision. Commit now to loving your pet through whatever comes up — and, odds are, your pet will love you for it.
When you’re ready to pick a pup to call your own, you can set yourself up for pet-owner success by getting the right supplies.
