I tried doing that, but at this point, she doesn’t even want it there when it’s off. I guess I need to put in some more work there.What happens if you try with the Clippers turned off? With Annie I found that helped. Turn them off, do two swipes, then turn them on and do the same two swipes. Well, that plus a good grip on the chin.
I also need to work on my grip. Right now she knows she can get out of my hand with a particularly vigorous head toss. I go right back to holding her muzzle, but I’m missing that valuable split-second opportunity to teach her that struggling gets her nowhere.
