Your Dog Grooming Experts

What if anything do I need to do to prepare for that first ‘Professional Grooming’?

We encourage all our owners to start brushing their pets from the very first day they bring them home, this will normally be at around 8 – 10 weeks in the case of new ‘puppies’. Although it may seem a little pointless since they will generally not have much coat, using a soft brush or comb for a minute or 2 each day will start building a great routine. Always make sure that this takes place somewhere free of distraction for you and your pet. Puppies have extremely short attention spans and it is essential that they learn to stay calm and quiet while being handled. So start with very short sessions, using a quiet voice to praise and lots of physical touch, particularly around the face and feet. This will help your pet to relax and enjoy the experience  and does wonders for your own well-being !!

In our home we have two small dawgs who are 18 and 17, respectively. they are ‘part human’, shitzu and shi-poodle cross.

as you can imagine they have required grooming since birth. And they have been taken (to Lynn) for grooming in leduc for more than 15 years.

I have upon occasion taken them to other (local) groomers, only to be disappointed by inferior cuts and dawgs who are vomiting and struggling with diarrhea due to stress.

yes it seems our pets are sensitive and easily stressed – but not once have they had issues after time at ‘For Paws’.

… this speaks volumes to me about the atmosphere at their facility in leduc.

one thing I know for sure is you should give Lynn and her crew at ‘For Paws’ a try – if you’re requiring grooming services.
