10 Feb Puppy Grooming: When to Schedule
When you bring that new puppy home, you want to make sure your pet becomes acclimated. Once your pup is settled into their new territory, take her for the first puppy grooming session. This usually occurs around the 10-12 week mark. To establish a regular routine, it’s best to take her before 16 weeks so she can get used to the process. Read on to learn more.
Make sure the groomer you choose is a good one so your puppy has a good experience. Most people search the internet as a first step. Look at groomer websites and choose ones in the area that have the services you want. But don’t stop there! It’s also a good idea to look at reviews outside the grooming website, so you get the truth from current clients. If you see mostly (or all!) good reviews, call the groomer to set up a time to see the facilities. You can tell a lot about the job they do based on the way the grooming areas look. Ask questions during your tour and judge from there.
Grooming can be an enjoyable experience for puppies, but it can also be scary. Before your pup’s first grooming session, have some family members or friends handle her a few times. This way the puppy is used to being away from you and with other people. Also try to get her used to being brushed and having her fur messed.
