Grooming Your Puppy
For pets grooming is a social activity as well as a cleansing one.
Dogs need to be brushed regularly – from once a day to once a week, depending on the breed. Brushing removes dust, loose hair and tiny flakes of skin.
Bathing is an important part of the grooming process. To avoid shampoo getting into the eyes, clean your puppy’s face with a separate ear and eye cloth. Always dry your puppy thoroughly after a bath so the natural layer of sebum which regulates a dog’s body temperature, can be restored.
Check the following regularly:
- Check eyes and ears for infection or discharge
- Examine teeth for signs of decay
- Ensure that your puppy’s claws do not grow too long
- Check for signs of fleas and worms
