The Importance of Grooming Your Puppy

Brookhaven Puppy Grooming | Suffolk County Designer Puppies

Choosing the perfect family pet is just as important as choosing a human companion. A puppy will quickly become a part of the family. You will have the responsibility of caring for your new family addition in many of the same ways you would your children and self. Just as grooming ourselves and putting time into our appearance and cleanliness. It is just as Important to Groom Your Puppy!

Maintaining the grooming of your puppy is just as vital to their physical health as it is for their appearance. Nobody wants a smelly, dirty puppy running around in the house or jumping on anyone. And more importantly, you don’t want a member of your family to be sick, especially your newest member.

Maintain healthy grooming habits is pretty simple. Just as you would teach a young child, you begin teaching your puppy to tolerate the grooming process when they are small little pups. According to, you may start grooming your new puppy as early as 3-weeks old. A bonus when purchasing from an experienced breeder is that your puppy may have already experienced grooming procedures prior to coming home to you. When your dog is older and perhaps quite stubborn, it may prove to be more difficult to get them accustomed to a grooming procedure.

Grooming consists of several factors such as ear cleaning, nail clipping, washing and drying, brushing, cleaning the teeth, eyes, and skin checks. Brushing is essential for all dogs to remove dead hair, dirt, and dandruff but if your puppy has longer hair, you can expect the grooming process to be a bit longer than that of a pup with shorter hair.

Grooming is also beneficial in identifying any health issues with their skin: ticks, fleas, dry areas as well as any signs of infection or inflammation with their teeth, ears, nails, and eyes. If caught early, most conditions are treatable right away before they have had an opportunity to worsen.

Adding a puppy to your family requires responsibility, love, and lots of good old TLC. Keeping your puppy properly groomed will help ensure that your puppy is happy and healthy. And a healthy puppy will save you tons of money in veterinary visits.
