Puppy Grooming Guildford
Puppies can start coming to grooming sessions once all puppy vaccinations are complete. But brushing your puppy starts from day one!
Getting your puppy used to being brushed is a vital stage in their development, as this teaches them the difference between play time and the dreaded brush time! It is always good to set aside ten to fifteen minutes a day to spend brushing, touching ears, feet and tail as this really helps in the future but also keeps the coat in good condition and matt free. This is also good bonding time with your pup which can be quite therapeutic for both of you.
Grooming is not just about making your pup look good, but also takes care of removing dead hair and keeping the skin nice and healthy. This is a good opportunity for us to get to know your pup during the grooming procedure.
Initially for the first few sessions we thoroughly brush through the coat ensuring any knots are removed, bath, dry, trim corners of the eyes, (depending if puppy allows) round the sanitary areas, feet and nails. This will slowly be progressed with each visit as they get more comfortable with the grooming process. This procedure is mainly for the longer, fluffier breeds, but all pups leave Funky Dogs having their ears checked, nails clipped, bathed and dried removing any dead hair along the way. This is all done whilst trying to make it as enjoyable as possible.
