Blissful Grooming Session

Thankfully, Katie and Louis both love to be groomed...a good thing since Newfies require A LOT of brushing, trimming, raking, combing, etc. along with all of the standard dog grooming steps like brushing their teeth, cleaning their ears and trimming their nails (we use a dremmel to grind the large Newfie nails down). I started putting them on the grooming table when they first came home around 10 weeks old and I know their breeder groomed them a lot when they were really young. Starting early helps them transition easily into the hundreds of hours of grooming that they will experience during their lives.

How many 5 1/2 month old puppies could be this good for a grooming session? Louis is such an awesome baby.

What well-behaved babes you have! And so lucky, too, to have Mom fuss over and pamper them so well. I can send you mine to do next, they are clean and very well behaved while being trimmed, but this momma is too busy working on her degree to fuss as much as they'd like....

Us, not so much. But for our dad, we suffer through it.

Your babies are SO good! Our guys are great except Chums thinks it is playtime for a good 10 minutes before she settles in.
