Your cute little puppy has made it through so much learning and growing in his first month. He is strong enough to run and make little jumps by now. He’s playing more than ever. And he’s even eating solid foods. Eating puppy kibble alone is enough to make him dirty as he plays with his meals and gets it in his coat. You may have been spot cleaning small areas of your puppy the past few weeks and are wondering just when you can give him a bath. If you don’t have to bathe him just yet, wait a bit longer. But if you must, you can submerge him in warm water for a very quick bath before wrapping, drying, and taking him back to warmth.
Have your bath all ready to go before introducing your one-month-old puppy to the water. He might be nervous and scared of the loud sounds running water makes. Also, feel free to continue with spot cleaning. At one-month-old, you are also giving him one small treat after he’s tolerated such a new experience.
If you are the puppy parent who will be pampering your pooch quite often, remember you will have many years to do that. With brushing, grooming, pedicures, and spa treatments, you'll have lots of time to pamper your pooch. When your little guy is only a month old, take care of him and only clean him when it's absolutely necessary.
is it to soon to have him groom
Hi Debra, congrats on your puppy! The most important thing to consider when taking Zeus to the groomer for the first time is his vaccines. Check with your veterinarian to make sure that they are all up to date before you go. The groomer should be introduced to your puppy for the first time around 8 to 10 weeks of age, although the first visit will be very brief. It's really just a "get to know you" kind of visit. The next visit will be about 2 weeks later and will involve a basic groom and a trim of the nail tips. Then, a few weeks later a full session of grooming can take place as Zeus will be comfortable with the groomer and will look forward to the hugs and treats!
