A question for those of you who do a lot of grooming.
Geoff the Airedale gets brushed every day (he hates this - I'm working on that). Any suggestions why this might be. I use a soft rubber grooming glove which his breeder suggested. But I digress.
We go through the hold each paw, put my fingers between his pads thing which his breeder said was important because they have hair growing between their pads. Most days I will get one or two burrs that have worked their way up so I wriggle them out. I am noticing the he has some small mats between his paws.
At the moment I get my daughter to pretty continuously click and treat while he is lying on his side, meanwhile I try to cut them out with nail scissors. This doesn't seem to be a very efficient way to deal with them. Is there an easier solution? Am I worrying over nothing?
Thank you for your assistance.
