Grooming the little bugger
So Stanley Frederick is still resisting grooming. I've been doing the same routine since his day two at my house. Wake up, potty, grooming (Clean face, wipe eye corners, spray with Isle of Dogs conditioning spray, line brush, overall brush, combing including feet, ears, mustache, brush teeth, treat, along with a few treats along with the calm "good boys" during the process.) So we are on week nine or so. He still resists a ton! Especially when I get to his hind quarters...growls, & tries to bite the brush or comb, or his face...squirms like there's five of him.
Any advice? Am I doing something wrong? Should I add something to the equation? Will he relent with time?
Thanks so much!
