Grooming My Giant Dog In NYC

Grooming My Giant Dog In NYC

Listen to my podcast, The Check Up with Doctor Mike, here:
Apple Podcasts:

Bear is my Newfoundland that lives with me in my apartment in NYC. While his size and amount of floof might be adorable and lovable, it makes keeping him clean and hygenic a very difficult process. Every few weeks I sit down with Bear and spend hours making sure he’s well groomed, from bathing, to shampoo, to soap, then brushing his teeth, trimming his nails, trimming his fur, and the exhaustive process of drying him out. I wanted to share this bathroom ritual with all of you so you could see just how challenging it is to groom my floofy in NYC, but also teach you some helpful tips about caring for your pets should you find yourself with a dog to groom someday.

    I love newfoundlands, its like their skin isn’t even attatched to their body, so it just swooshes around like jello. <3

  16. Jae’s Adventures on January 2, 2023 at 2:00 am

  25. ♡kf 4 ever♡ on January 2, 2023 at 2:17 am

    Mike didn’t realize that’s he just compared himself to a monkey was funny

  26. Jasmine Ramnani on January 2, 2023 at 2:18 am

    Question!: do your co-workers know about your youtube channel? what do they think about it?

  27. Kaitlynne Walters on January 2, 2023 at 2:19 am

    I know this is very late but I’ll still leave this comment. Get you an undercoat rake. They really work wonders at getting the loose hair out that’s in the undercoat. The rake works really well on double coated breeds like Bear. I have one for my border collie/husky mix and I’m so glad I got it! Makes hours of brushing take like half the time. You’ll love the rake since it’s much wider and can get more of Bear much quicker.

  28. SIUUUUUUUUUUU on January 2, 2023 at 2:19 am

    The fact when he was pretending to be dead when Mike said "Play dead"


  29. Gabriel Fieraru on January 2, 2023 at 2:21 am

  30. Jorge Sandoval on January 2, 2023 at 2:23 am

  32. jayden sherrill on January 2, 2023 at 2:26 am

    I died laughing when I saw the monkey on the screen because before I was making
    the same face as the monkey like I was losing my breath type of dying

  33. Captain LucasWerewolf on January 2, 2023 at 2:27 am

    I think it is a good reason why people with big dogs like this take them to a groomer usually if they live in apartments XD

  34. kokoshneta on January 2, 2023 at 2:29 am

    There is no purer expression of love than a floofy Newfie.

  35. Vibecheck on January 2, 2023 at 2:30 am

    Wow, that’s not a dog, it’s a grizzly bear!

  42. Rockabelle on January 2, 2023 at 2:36 am

    Alright, if I wasn’t already convinced you must be great with patients, I am, now. If you take as good care of your patients as you do of your dog, they are happy patients, indeed.
