So i'm not sure what I want to do for pups first groom. I want to leave her fluffy but with a neatened up look.

I work in a grooming shop as a bather and in training for grooming so I want to do something I can do myself.

I can do clean face/feet just fine but would like ideas on what to do for a first haircut. I want to leave the coat fluffy so I was thinking of a snap. Most people who come in get pretty short cuts and i plan on leaving the coat a decent length.



That's how his coat is right now. I mainly want to groom him just for the sake of getting him used to it. The breeder has been grooming him quite often to get him used to the process so i'd like to continue that.

I'm actually picking him up TOMORROW! I was going to pick him up today but i want to make sure I have everything ready so today I set up his crate, bought some teething rings, kongs. I looked EVERYWHERE to find the same food the breeder uses (chicken soup) so I have 2 bags of it here now, i plan on keeping him on the same stuff at least while he's a puppy. My shepherd eats Taste of the Wild so i'll switch him to that after he's off the puppy food. I believe they are both made by "Diamond" foods so it shouldn't be too rough of a switch.

Anyway... im babbling, but what can I say.. i'm excited! I also bought a new leash and rolled leather collar, pet bed. I cleaned my entire house making sure to wash all the vinyl floors, etc...

I think i'm just trying to keep busy to make the time go by!

Jenlanepoodles.com is where im getting him from. He is listed on the "standard puppies available" it says "going home with stephanie" There are two others from the same litter available so if anyone in louisiana or florida feels like making a drive she has some cute puppies left!

I was debating between hot rod and the creme-parti male she has left but I love the darker coat on a dog and she said he seems to have a strong drive for playing fetch and retrieving and I really want a dog that will do that with me for hours. I'm a very active person so I need a dog to match my personality!
