Our dear Dizzie absolutely hates being groomed,he was not too bad as a puppy,but has become gradually worse and worse,he has a real fear of it,I think he genuinely has a low pain thresh hold when it comes to any thing fur or skin related.His breeder said that the whole litter made a terrible fuss when they had their first shots,and that normally her pups don't really even notice having it done.For the last 3 years or so he has been going to the groomers once every 2 months for a wash and trim, so I hardly have to comb him myself,that way I am not the baddy!His half sister Nellie is fine with grooming and just sits on my lap and lets me get on with it,she also goes with Dizzie to the groomers,where strangely,Dizzie behaves well though is very scared[our groomer is great she totally loves all dogs and cats,and is happy for you to stay if you want,even help!]and Nellie sometimes wriggles about,though she does get tired and has to have a break during the proses.Dear Dizzie slinks away as soon as I start grooming the cats or Nellie,even when I open the door to where the brushes etc are kept,he is off under the bed and he won't come out until he is quite sure all grooming products are safely tucked away! He instinctively knows when I am thinking of brushing him,even before I do!!
