Puppy Grooms.

Why are puppy grooms important?

Puppy socialisation is a critical part of every puppy’s education, this also includes regular visits to the groomers!

Most dogs will require visits to the groomers every 6-8 weeks throughout their lifetime so it is very important to get them used to attending the salon and the grooming process. Most dogs love their visits once they learn it’s a safe place to be (plenty of cuddles and play provided!) and it really does become just a normal part of their life.

At Arnie’s of Essex we offer puppy grooming introduction sessions (puppy grooms) from the age of 14 weeks – providing all pups have completed their full vaccination course.  We do usually advise pups to have been out on walks for a week or two before their first visit, so they have seen a bit of the world first to help prevent the appointment being too daunting for them.

What does a puppy intro groom involve?

A puppy intro groom is essentially a desensitisation to the grooming salon and process. When pups first arrive at the salon, we give them plenty of time to have a good sniff around and explore the area and different smells. We also have a little play time to help show your pups it’s a safe, friendly place to be.

We then move on to show them the process of grooming, starting with a nice warm bubble bath in our top of the range Hydrobath. We use specialist hypoallergenic puppy shampoo which is designed to prevent skin irritation and is nice and soothing for them.

Once your pup’s bath is completed, we go on to give them a warm blow dry. We always start our hand dyers on a very low setting and all pups will wear a cosy hoody to help get them get used to the dryer noise and protect their little ears.  Please note- all dogs are hand dried and never left unattended. We do not use drying cabinets in our salon.

Once dry we then go on to give your pup a thorough brush through which really helps them get used to it both at the salon and helps when you do it at home too. We then show your pups some of the clippers and scissoring that’s involved in grooming, including a pad, feet, hygiene, back end and eye trim. This is a great opportunity for your puppy to get used to standing on the grooming table and get used to the different noises and sensations whilst we scissor and trim. We also then give them a nail clip to help get them get used to us touching their nails and lifting their feet etc.

To finish off we give them a spray with our finishing spray, a perfume spritz and a very cute bandana along with lots more cuddles of course!

We usually recommend between 1-3 puppy intro sessions depending on your dog’s age and how they cope with the grooming process. We will be able to advise you on this after your pups first visit.

These sessions are a great way for your pup to come the salon and get used to the environment, noises and atmosphere without the appointment being too long or too much for them, this in turn really helps set them up for their full adult grooms in the future.
