  • HELP! He hates it!


  • #2
    Hes 9 weeks.
    You have 3 months to train it before grown up coat appears.
    Take a deep breath n chill.
    Some dogs love it. Some need it pairing with an icy pole to lick whilst you groom for 2 mins before you break n play. Then another 2 mins etc.
    Id do it on a table from the off - to save your back too.
    Tough luck - is my approach to solid nerved dog whos new to being groomed. Firm insistance but for low duration. And steak pieces (highest value food reward).
    Ensure you train this prior to meal time. So hes very keen on food.
    Slow n steady. A dollop of nurse ratchet should get you through training him.
    Good luck

          At 9 weeks he's still so little, you've got plenty of time to figure out brushing.

          Bernie's suggestions are good. Perhaps you could find some kind of long lasting treat that he loves that he only gets when you are brushing him... create some positive associations. Grooming him up on a table will also help.

          If you are really really struggling and making no progress I'd suggest asking your breeder for help or ask if they can recommend a good groomer who can help you with this.

            for when you dont have time to train: stand still whilst i groom
            take dog outside, put it facing a window. Smear peanut butter on the window. Groom whilst dog is distracted.

                  Try going advanced and then posting. See if that makes a difference.

                    Yes Bernie the double posts are related to the quick reply feature. Once you've typed up your reply, instead of clicking "Post quick reply" click "go advanced" and then post your reply from there. That seems to stop the double posts.
