Over the last few weeks I have had the absolute pleasure of introducing several puppies to the salon. Many breeds will have the need to make regular visits to a groomer during their lifetime if their coat is to be maintained in a good condition. It is, therefore, so important that the dog finds the experience a pleasure and not stressful. The earlier we can start acclimatising them to the salon the better.
During the visits to my salon I also often get to talk to friends of owners who are also interested in getting a puppy for themselves. I tell them of the responsibilities of owning a dog and the long term commitment it can be.
If you are thinking of introducing a dog into your family think carefully about your lifestyle and surroundings. A great place to help find useful information is the RSPCA’s website page “Get Puppy Smart”. If you need further advice speak to your local vet or qualified groomer.
As qualified professional groomers we handle numerous breeds of dog and we can advise you about the temperament of the breeds we regularly come across.
