Faith, if I could do it over again, I would clicker train Shama to want to be on my lap. She's happy to be on or near DH, but my lap is the always-to-be-avoided grooming table, especially if I'm in my recliner, which is where I am most evenings! She also likes to be on the floor near us. I definitely thought she would be more of a lap dog than she is. A little friend came to visit her today, and she does indeed like to be near me if I'm giving any attention to another dog!

When Shama was little, we loved to give her bully springs (easier to hold with paws than sticks) and PIGS' EARS! (Don't give pigs' ears to adult dogs as they're too rich.) She still has the same cow's ear she's has since she was a puppy. It's funny to see her chewing on it once in a while. Lately, she's been wild about her horse hoof! Again, it's the same one she's had since she was a puppy! (You can put a bit of peanut butter in a horse hoof like in a Kong ...)
I think that if you used a grooming table, rather than your lap, she would be less concerned about your lap. You might still get her there!

I quick grooms on my lap, but I donít do mats or anything more than 10 minutes on my lap (unless I can stop a lot for ear scratches and belly rubs). I had the same problem, Shama Mama, and I couldnít bear it! He would give me sad faces and lay down just out of reach. I have a little nesting table Iíve been using lately. Itís a tiny bit too long so sometimes itís uncomfortable when he lays on the other end, but so far I canít think of a good place to store a real grooming table (or even a tabletop setup) thatís near enough to where Iíd actually use it.

Advantages and disadvantages to everything! Iím glad I can groom my Havanese anywhere at any time while he holds still on my lap. But, I probably should have spent an equal amount of time training him on a table, just to make it easier to do both.

Shama is a dainty eater when it comes to cow's ear. She might be considered a ruffian if she ate an ear in less than six year's time ...

. DH does occasionally ask why we bought the grooming table ... You're right, of course. I should convert. Attention lazy Havanese owners! If you groom in your lap, your lap dog will not choose your lap!

Thanks for advice about lap grooming. Since I read your post I have been putting a towel on the floor with a frozen Kong to distract him from chewing on my hands. This is working well so far but I am having a difficult time with his underside. My neighbor who owns and shows 5 Shelties (that are groomed to perfection) returns to Florida next month. She has a complete grooming setup and I am hoping she will show me how.

Hats off to teachers everywhere! Your jobs were already stressful and now Covid is pushing the limits. Letís hope that they can find a solution soon.

Hang in there!

We have a grooming table, and I use that with Oliver every time. Roxie is not a fan. She has JUST started letting me put her on it, and I give her treats and praise and just brush a little, not much, or she'd go crazy and flail around.

It requires training for most of them. But it’s really important training for a costed breed, where regular grooming is going to be a necessity for their entire life!

...Then there are the few “Divas” like Panda who seem born to the grooming table, and lie down and say, “Make me beautiful!” LOL!

And then there are ones like Keeper, who throws daily tantrums about being brushed, biting everything he can reach - brushes, combs, fingers.

Luckily, Denver is like Panda, so I only have to fight one dog. Lol.
