For more confident puppies a 1 hour visit can be scheduled to introduce them to the grooming experience during which they should have a soothing bath, and a gentle fluff dry and comb out. Depending on how they react they can also have their nails tipped, ears cleaned and introduced to teeth brushing.
What should I expect from my puppy grooming?
Such groomers usually have a range of services that you can choose from, such as bathing your puppy, cutting their hair, checking their eyes and ears to make sure they are clean, checking their nose to make sure it is moist and not cracked, and cleaning out their paws.
What kind of grooming does a puppy need?
Some puppy breeds take more coat care than others, while some may have "drip dry" easy care fur. Puppy grooming not only includes brushing your puppy, but it also can require bathing puppies, dog ear cleaning, eye care, claw clipping, anal gland attention, and even how to brush dogs teeth.
When should a puppy get groomed?
Once you've successfully acclimated your pup to all-around handling, at or around the 10-12 week mark, you can take her in for the first grooming session (often after the second round of shots). At the latest, the first grooming is recommended before 16-weeks of age.
