Manipulative Little Dog

Brady has been a bear to brush lately. He has never been good about getting brushed, but lately, he has been really tough. He has a new thing. Instead of trying to chew my arm off when I brush him, he now tried to jump up on me and kiss my face. We were just sitting on the floor with the brush and he started squirming towards my lap and then started pouring the kisses on my face. I couldn't help but crack up laughing. What a little manipulater.

I know I have to start using a table to brush him on. He is very good for his groomer, just not him mom.

I'm sorry, who could resist that! Bye bye brush, let's cuddle! Smart boy!
What do you use to keep him so white??


With a smile,

He's a charmer, that Brady . Biscuit generally likes brushing, and gets very excited and opens his mouth as wide as possible as I do it. He really wants to bite me with joy, but restrains himself, knowing it's a no-no. It always makes me laugh. I always groom him somewhere flat and high, like atop his crate or the kitchen counter, etc. or he wouldn't cooperate at all. Sometimes he'll also cooperate on the sofa, but not as well.



HAV A GREAT DAY ! ~~AMY & BISCUIT~~
and HEATH-Y, TOO !

Capote likes being brushed..for the most part..lol. When I take out the comb he jumps on my lap. He lets me brush his head and back but when I go towards the sides and his belly thats when he gets tired of being brushed and tries to get away..lol

Kubrick loves getting brushed because he knows he will get freeze dried liver treats during the brushing. I cut one piece up into 6 and give them to him as I go. He still hates getting his mustache combed, but he allows me to do it without too much struggle (plus I always stick a treat in his mouth while I'm doing it so he's busy chewing).

Brady is a smart little boy... I always fall for the licks too! Kubrick was trying to get at my knitting today and when I would tell him that wasn't okay, he would just look at me with his head cocked and start to lick my face as much as possible before trying to get to the knitting again. It made me laugh, so I guess his goal was achieved.

Gucci has tried that tactic! LOL, She'll lick/kiss on me somewhere and sometimes I'll stop for a minute or two, so that is why she keeps trying it.

Clever lil' ones, ehh?

She also has started licking my leg when she is hungry or wants a bite of whatever I am eating. I am not complaining, its better than barking at me, right? lol

Oh Riley has tried this little trick also.. It's my own falt though, I would always give him a kiss when I am done grooming so now he associates kissing as being done. Little stinkers have us figured out sooo well.

That's how I used to feel Amanda and went through the same thing. Hubby did pick up the brush to help out. Egads what a mess I had on my hands after 2 weeks of him 'brushing' the dogs. He forgot to go down to the skin, so while they looked great there was a bunch of matting at the skin.
