Puppies first dog grooming
Puppies first groom is important and you want it to go well, a negative experience could stay with them for some time.
Getting a puppy in for a groom by the age of 8 weeks is a great first step in getting them used to pet grooming.
These early first few weeks puppies are exploring the world, and if this becomes their norm they won’t question it.
We recommend getting your puppy in for their first haircut at approximately 4 – 6 months old.

But if you are a little nervous about your puppies first groom there are a few things you can do at home to prepare them.
Teaching your puppy, the basics will go a long way to getting them ready for pet grooming.
We suggest you start by touching your dog all over so they are comfortable with being handled. Do this daily until you feel your pup is comfortable. Once they are comfortable, try brushing their coat gently. Something as simple as this can go a long way to giving them a positive pet grooming experience.
Getting your puppy socialised with dog grooming early on will make it a more pleasurable experience for you and them.
