When you have a puppy you might think that the main things they need are cuddles, toys, puppy school, food, and water, but not dog grooming. However, it will be in the best interests of both that cute little puppy and you, if you introduce them to dog grooming in their formative months.
The question often gets asked by puppy owners, “When should I start grooming them?” and the simple answer is as soon as possible. Just as it is never too early to start teaching your puppy how to behave, and that it should do its business outside, not indoors, it is also never too early to start caring for its coat. So let us take a closer look at why grooming your puppy as soon as possible benefits them.
They Get Used To Close Contact With Important ‘Strangers’
Throughout its early life, your puppy is going to have to meet and be close up to so-called strangers i.e. people it has never met before. This includes their vet, veterinary nurses, and the dog groomer to name but three. The sooner they experience this and understand these people mean them no harm, the sooner visits to these places will seem routine to them.
