Puppy Grooming

It is crucial for puppies to make their first visit to a grooming salon when they are about 14 weeks old or when they are fully vaccinated.

A grooming salon can be scary place for little ones with noisy hair driers, buzzing clippers, a giant bath and other big dogs. Their first visit will include play time with the daycare dogs, an introduction to grooming (wash, dry, brush, nails, tidy bottom, etc) and more play time before heading home. This can be repeated as necessary until your pup is more comfortable. 

The subsequent visits could involve a trim and later on a full groom. Tips and advice are available for things that you can do at home between visits to help get them used to the salon for example, tickling and playing with their feet so they can get used to the trim on their pads. General handling of your pup is so important too. It will make the groomers life easier and the grooming experience will be less not stressful when they are being picked up, etc. 

We also sell treats, toys and puppy food to help you on your way.
