One of the most important things to consider when getting a puppy is grooming. If you get a hairier breed, Shih-Tzus, Yorkies, etc they will need a regular dog grooming, at home and a professional dog groomer.
Other breeds such as border terriers will need hand stripping.
Beyond the cost of dog grooming to think about, its very important to find a good dog groomer and to get your puppy socialised to being groomed as soon as possible.
You can begin this process at home as soon as you have your puppy, doing things like carefully trimming them around their eyes and bottoms, ( something that you may need to do inbetween professional grooming sessions anyway) also touching their paws is very important its something I do with all my puppy visit clients, touching toes, pads, nails and their foot in general.
In New Mills and High Peak we are fortunate to have two very good groomers in town and just outside of town.
Paw Wash and the dog grooming barn.
My clients go to both, and I often recommend them.
