I thought I would start a tread to share the best trade secrets of grooming - as I have come across one.
I enjoy grooming Cora, think it makes us get closer. however, sometimes, usually when I rim his nails, he pulls his paws, moves suddenly, which makes me nervous, which in turn makes him nervous. Sometimes I let him go without finishing what I started.
Today was different. I just finished giving him a shorter cut. and he was standing and keeping still for about 45 minutes! This is so unheard of. I didn't even use the grooming arm.
My secret: Wobbly table. He worked on balancing himself, especially when he is on three feet, and did not budge.
So happy with the results. Here is a picture of him after the cut. Happy and filled with treats
Well I got mine at a yard sale for $5.. But I saw them at Ikea.. I love Ikea! Lol.. Good job on the grooming! My boy is too big for that table. Smart of you to think to use it for grooming table too! I actually had to buy a real grooming table for him.
