If you want to continue grooming him yourself, you are on the right track! And even if you want to use a groomer, you are doing all of the right things to prepare for the groomer. I offer Puppy Packages from second round of shots to 6 months. The cost is less and it includes bathing, blowdrying, brushing, ear cleaning and plucking (by request), nail cutting and filing, sanitary trim, and haircut. I also offer weekly baths at a reduced rate. I have a client, althougth the dog is not a puppy, she is on a weekly schedule. She just gets a bath, blowdry, and brushout every week, and the 4th week will be a bath, blowdry, brush, ear cleaning/plucking, nails clipping/filing, sanitary, feet trim. Then continue with the weekly baths, and the 8th week will be a full groom. This puts the dog on a regular schedule, and the client is trying to grow out her dog's hair so the baths help. I say a dog is never too young for grooming - of course most of the time, for puppies it's just getting them used to handling and noises of the grooming process. If you want to use a groomer, ask what they require, how young the puppy can be etc.
