Grooming for Puppies
Learn the basics of grooming and body handling in this 4-week series class for puppies 2 to 5 months old.
Introduction to Grooming for Puppies (2 to 5 months old)
Body handling, grooming, and nail trims by “strangers” can be scary for puppies! They will often squirm, wiggle, or run away. Learn how to use positive training instead of using force to get puppies to do what is needed for their physical health and well-being. This class focuses on introducing body handling procedures done by pet professionals at a pace appropriate for your young puppy.
By familiarizing them to common routines used by pet professionals, we give them the tools to navigate their first experiences with unfamiliar people handling them. Dogs who successfully complete this series are eligible for low- stress nail trim events held exclusively for Ahimsa graduates.
This class includes a play time, which can be too stimulating for some puppies. If your puppy can’t be safely integrated into the play groups, we may have them work on self-control and relaxation during the play times.
Class includes a free dog training clicker and an instant download of 100+ page dog training manual.
