Pruning of Blackberry and Blueberry Plants

I have two blueberries and two blackberry plants – planted last year (bare root). The blueberries are about 18″ tall, whereas the blackberries are 4 -6 feet tall. Should they be pruned, and if so, how and when? I have raspberries also – planted three and have several suckers. I was going to prune these by cutting all of them to the ground in early spring – correct?
Thank you
