Big and small, we groom them all,’ is a common claim heard in professional grooming salons across the nation.

In this video we show you how to introduce two very different breeds of dogs to the professional grooming process. One puppy is a 12-week-old Maremma Sheepdog who will mature to approximately 130 pounds, and the other is a 15-week-old Dandie Dinmont Terrier puppy who will mature to be less than 30 pounds.

This video will help you learn how to:

  • Make the process fun for the puppy.
  • Gently set rules and limitations for the puppy.
  • Begin table training.
  • Introduce a puppy to its first bath.
  • Introduce a puppy to the drying process.
