A trained dog is not only a reason for pride, but also a guarantee of safety for both the pet itself and everyone around it. But that is not all. For centuries, people have been selecting dogs with various inclinations and abilities – they made different breeds that can be conditionally divided into shepherds, hunting (gundogs, hounds), security, service and companion dogs. These dogs, like humans, need to exercise their abilities in order to be happy. And the right training technique allows you to discover and develop their natural talents. This, you see, is much nicer and more useful than raising a “sofa” pet.

The minimum age for bathing a puppy is 3 months. A responsible breeder will not give the puppy to a new home before this time. At 3 months, the baby already has more or less strong immunity, and bathing, if done correctly, will not cause him any harm.
