Whenever you buy a dog make sure you collar him with his name, your name, address, and telephone number written on it. He will never be lost in case he goes away from you.

Undertake proper physical examination of your dog on a monthly basis. Check the pad of its feet for any injuries. Undertake an oral examination of its mouth. Make sure that his ears and teeth are clean. Take your dog for regular veterinarian check-ups every 2 to 3 months.

Long-haired Dogs should be groomed daily.

Short-haired Dogs should be groomed weekly.

Select a time when you and your dog have adequate time. This will make grooming as a pleasurable experience for both you and your dog.

Get your puppy habitual to grooming when he is a young. You can do that by handling your puppy often, touching his ears, back and paws.

Make sure you handle gently some areas of your dog’s body which is more sensitive to combing and brushing than others.
