What will my puppy learn?
The puppies are introduced to all equipment they will come in to contact with in grooming salons and many that they will experience at the vets. Each piece of equipment is introduced in a step by step, safe, positive manner, allowing the puppy to become accustomed to how the equipment looks, sounds and feels. This gradual introduction eliminates much of the fear many dogs exhibit towards some of the equipment.
They are put through a variety of exercises that they will need to learn for future grooming, such as different head and body positions, different methods of brushing, nail clipping/filing, mouth handling and foot handling. All this is taught in a step by step manner introducing the puppy to one thing at a time and allowing him/her to investigate each item thoroughly.
Play is a large part of the programme. The puppy is constantly praised whenever they get anything remotely right.
