Grooming should be done daily. It can be as casual as gently running a comb or soft brush over its body while you are watching TV at night. You can take a piece of gauze and wipe its teeth and the insides of the earflaps. When the puppy smells stinky you will need to give it a bath. When you give your puppy a bath you will be able to see its bone structure. When the puppy is around the age of 9 months to a year pay particular attention to the formation of your puppy's front legs when it has soapy shampoo on it. The shampoo makes the hair stick close to the body so you can really see how the puppy's front legs have developed. If they look like they are bowed or irregularly shaped you need to refer to the health issues topics such as chondroysplasia.
