Puppy's first home groom
In this video Laura is giving Dash, the Cavapoo his first home groom, and introducing him to all of the new grooming actions and equipment!
It is extremely important to groom your puppy yourself at home and get them used to being groomed before they go to the groomers. Bit by bit you can start to introduce little grooms as they grow up like clipping the nails, giving it a bath, brushing its coat and drying their fur - this means that when they go for their first groom they will calm and not anxious or scared or unhappy, because they are used to it.

Puppy's first salon groom
Puppy's still need to go to the salon whether that is for a groom, a check up or a simple wash and dry - they still need professional treatment and care, and it's a good idea to get your puppy used to the salon as early on as possible.
Puppy's can go for their first salon groom anytime after they have received all of their jabs, so this can be 1, 2, 3 or 4 months after you first get them.
A lot of puppy owners want their puppy to stay as round and as cute and fluffy as possible, the "puppy look", and in this video Laura is showing you a very simple and quick puppy cut groom for any first time puppy customer.
