Puppies and their First Grooming

Gary's Professional Dog Grooming - collage of dog from bath to grooming

We recommend that puppies come in for their first grooming at 12 weeks of age. This grooming will be a training session along with a grooming. This is to ensure that your dog has a great first experience and will love being groomed. Dog breeds that will require a consistent grooming schedule should always get started on a positive dog grooming path very early.

Sometimes we will recommend that the first grooming is just a bath, brush out, and nail trim. This usually takes less time to complete thus allowing your puppy a brief introduction to the grooming process. Keeping your puppy on track with a regular grooming program will keep them healthy and reduce any stress from the grooming process.
