Significant Facts About Grooming Your Puppies
Grooming your puppies is a stressful task to do both the you and the pup’s. But it is a good bonding experience between you and the puppy. Grooming gives many advantages especially for the pup, but there are some things to consider before you start.
Steps for grooming are actually easy to do. What you actually need to have is a lot of patience especially if you are to groom a puppy for the first time. The first thing that you will need to do is to give them a bath.
Expect the puppy to dislike what you are going to do specially when water touches him/her, though it’s recommended to start giving them bath while they are still young. This is to familiarize them to the procedures or being washed with water and soap. Always use lukewarm water for them.
It would be a good idea to wash only its body for the first time, but on the next, wash them thoroughly with the head being last. This is to prevent them from wiggling or reacting violently. You will see why when you experience it. Do it quick to prevent catching cold. Use shampoo’s that are particularly for them, with certain types for thick or thin coated puppies.
Dry them up immediately after bathing. Give them treats to make them at ease and also a reward for going through a stressful activity. You can now brush their coats, though they won’t like it too. Regularly do this and they will eventually get used to it. It’s important to give a smooth and shiny coat for them especially if they have thick hairs.
There are many kinds of tools used for trimming your puppy’s nails. You can choose whatever you prefer that you are comfortable to use. Just remember that you must not cut more than the nails or up to the veins because this will lead to bleeding.
There are also lots of available anti-lice powders in many pet shops that are specifically for little pups. It’s very useful and can make your puppy’s coat smooth, shiny, and smelling good. Grooming your puppies is very important not just for their appearance, but especially for their health.
