Keeping your Akita pup well-groomed is part of being a good pet parent. The only problem with this is that Akitas have a well-earned reputation for resisting any kind of grooming. However, since they shed virtually every day of the year, you need to brush your pup every day to help keep his coat manageable. But what do you do when he won't calm down enough for you to be able to groom him? Here we present two ways you can achieve this and make grooming your Akita a lot easier.
Your dog cares far less about being groomed than you do. In fact, he probably doesn't care much at all. But the one thing you can count on is your Akita is not going to be happy about the whole ordeal and is not likely to stand still for it unless you take the time to train him.
The reason your pup is anxious about being groomed is more than likely because he is scared of the tools and has not had time to get used to the process. The best way to calm him down is to take your time and keep working with him at his pace until he becomes completely comfortable with it.
