PROFESSIONAL GROOMING -
Scottie grooming is optional.  Some people like their Scottie 'woolly' -  without a haircut.   Others like the clean "Scottie Cut" - that's what we prefer.   Also an option is the "Puppy Cut", which is really a combination of the other two.  If you like the Scottie cut version, you should plan on a grooming appointment every 6-8 weeks.     Each dog is different, but we've found that a regular grooming makes our dogs feel and look better.  Of course, you can adjust the grooming schedule to your preferences.
 
BRUSHING -
Brushing your Scottie on a regular basis gives you an opportunity to spend quality time with your dog.  If you start brushing and handling them as a young puppy, it will help get them used to being handled, which your groomer will appreciate !  We always recommend that you handle the Scottie's feet and muzzle at every opportunity - these seem to be the spots that they least like for someone to touch. 
 
WHAT ABOUT A BATH ? -
Scotties that live in your house with you will probably not need a bath more often than their regular  grooming.  They generally like to be clean, and fortunately, dirt will usually fall out of their coat, or can be brushed out easily.   Of course, if he or she gets into something 'stinky' you may have to alter this schedule.  When you bathe your Scottie make every effort to keep the water out of their ears - this can cause ear infections, and you don't want that !   Also, make sure you get all of the dog shampoo out of his/her coat.  If you don't, you'll have a very itchy Scottie.   (NEVER use human shampoo or soap on your dog !)  Like most dogs, Scotties may not be too keen on their first bath...  They can be frightened and want out of the bath area.   Just be patient and talk softly to him/her, so that they can realize that a bath is a fun experience, after which they will feel and look great !!   Usually, by the time they've had their 3rd bath, they understand that it's fun, and they will enjoy it.  Our Scotties are pretty good in the bath, and they all LOVE being dried off with a big, fluffy towel !!   We also recommend that, after you towel dry your Scottie, you spend some amount of time exposing them to a hair dryer.   This helps to dry them (careful - not too hot !!), and gets them used to the noise of the dryer, which they will experience when they are being  groomed. 
 
At Shady Nook, each puppy has it's own "Spa Day" before they leave us.  We give them a bath, trim around their tail, shave their tummy, and clip their nails.   When you get a Shady Nook Scottie, he or she looks and smells great !!
