Puppies are A LOT of fun, you get the cuddles, the love, the kisses and happiness from them. But they are also A LOT of work. You have to train them, take them to the vet, and well get them into a routine which includes grooming! My littles have never been to a groomers, I have groomed them myself their entire lives BUT we recently found the PERFECT grooming routine that works for all of us! It took a lot of trial and error until we got what works for us.

As you can tell my our schedule their teeth and their faces get cleaned everyday, while their nails and ears are done every other day. Belle is white so she gets dirtier a lot faster than my little guy Tarzan does so I give her a bath twice a week. Occasionally depending on what we are doing Tarzan will need a bath as well but thats rare, he’s a very clean little dude.

The trimming part happens twice a week, because with two pups its twice the work.This is what I found easiest for all of us and noticed that they are a lot calmer with the process. I tried to have everything done in one day Sunday was the designated grooming day BUT it was a lot to handle and we were all stressed which was not ok. So finally getting this routine and schedule together took the stress off of all of us. It was a ton of trial and error but I am so glad we have our set routine that works for all of us.What is your routine with your little puppers? I would love to know!
