So this is an interesting one..
We all are the culprit of buying a dog for the first time, knowing already about insurance, food, vets bills etc but what about grooming?Watch Full Movie Online Streaming Online and Download?
So many people are given the wrong information if any at all from breeders about when you should take the dog to the groomers for the first time so…. Here it is.
The moment you have had your puppy injections and they are ok to go outside into the world this is the time to start getting your pup acquainted with your chosen groomer. The first visit should just be to meet and chat with your puppy having a sniff and hearing some of the equipment, having a play but just a general meeting.. The next meeting should be a bath, dry and just a trim of any unruly fur and a nail check.
The reason for bringing them so early is due to them being so much more accepting at this age. Leaving them until they are older can bring on a lot more fearful behaviour making it far more stressful for the dog which of course we don’t want .
As for how often, this varies breed to breed, at the bottom I have a list as a guide. Some dogs fur doesn’t grow as quick, there are also some owners that feel less grooming is required over winter because they need their fur to keep warm.. again I believe the groom regularity should stay the same, dogs are more likely to get knotty in winter with all the wet, potentially wearing jackets etc.
One last point i would like to make is dogs that are groomed often see it as the norm but dogs groomed less frequently can view it as punishment.
