Yes, grooming includes trimming the nails, brushing the teeth, bathing, cutting the hair/fur and more depending on the pet salon’s services. These services can make your dog very stressed and not all groomers are gentle enough to groom them nicely. First, introduce your puppy to grooming at a young age so it will get used to it and won’t be fearful or aggressive whenever you take it to a groomer. Second, look for a good groomer and never leave your pet. Watch it being groomed or just stay in the salon to make the groomer feel, “Hey, I’m here. Do something nasty with my dog and I’ll be nastier to you”. Many dogs have been very sick and/or died because of how the groomers handled them. So, be very careful with your dog.
