I usually just time grooming so itís right when we come in from outside play time, and that way all of the nature he brings in with him is brushed out all at once.
I donít really let my Hav ďoff trailĒ unless I know I can groom afterwards because he once ended up with paws full of tiny burrs that were a huge mess. But I do try to make sure he can run around and get into stuff when I know I can just groom him or give him a bath afterwards.
My kids pretty much cured my neuroses about my house staying clean. Before we decided to get a puppy I once found a roly-poly habitat DS created in my living room. Another time, DS came home from school muddy from a rainy recess. I told him to put his clothes in the laundry room, and when I went to check his pockets before starting a load, I pulled out a handful of worms. That was around the time we started looking seriously into puppies, actually!
