As a new pup owner, it is extremely essential for you to know what is correct for the pup, right from proofing the home, settling him in, to his diet management, vaccination process, training and YES grooming. Here are a few Do’s and Don’ts for pup grooming.

Do’s

  • Be very patient and gentle with your pet when brushing or combing.
  • Use a hot towel sponge, if his coat gets dirty. Special care should be taken to ensure that the coat is dried immediately.
  • Regular brushing or combing also prevents mats and tangles from developing and keeps the skin and coat healthy.
  • Routine brushing helps in replacing the puppy coat and reducing hair fall substantially, while removing dust particles.
  • Be extremely patient while opening knots on long-coat pups.
  • Regularly check the inside of your pup’s ears and its edges. Clean with cotton if required.
  • Examine your pup’s tail end, under pads and toilet areas constantly and keep them clean.
