Hi: When I pick up the hairbrush and walk toward Levi, he runs away, wagging his tail like we're playing a game. His hair is a mess. What do I do?
I agree with the raised surface. I couldn’t believe what a difference it made for Beau. He used to want to make it a game when I tried brushing him on the floor and he would be really squirmy. Now at 6 mo old, on the counter he does really well and maybe even enjoys it. He stands and waits for me to lift him up there. I just put a Rubbermaid dish mat down so he doesn’t slide around. Maybe someday a grooming table....I would use a raised surface. Place him on a table or other high surface like a freezer or washing machine. Teach him that grooming happens at this location and he must get used to it. Be very gentle and sweet talk him and give him treats for good behavior.
