 Puppy coats are easy to maintain, but this is when you want to start grooming -- before the adult coat comes in when the puppy is 8-12 months old. It is a very good idea to get your puppy used to being brushed early on and make that a bonding experience rather than a chore. During the baby to adult coat transition, brush multiple times a week; giving your puppy his first trim during this time will help keep the coat mat free. It's important to massage your puppy's paws and ears so they are comfortable with being touched.
