Once you get a new puppy be sure you handle him every day. This means touching him from ears to tail so he becomes used to being handled by people. This will save you headaches at vet appointments, grooming parlors, or even nail trims at home in the future since your dog will not mind being touched as much.
A good training tip is to be aware of the special grooming needs of your dog’s breed. Some dog breeds require little to no grooming, while other breeds require meticulous grooming almost every week. Grooming keeps your dog happy and clean, and greatly reduces the risk of disease.
When it comes to grooming activities, familiarize your pet with common handling as early as possible. Dogs require grooming regardless of breed and getting your pet used to having her paws, face and ears handled regularly makes the grooming process less stressful for both of you. Whether you do your own grooming or have it done professionally, train your dog to accept handling common to grooming.
