When you have a dog whose curiosity seems to know no bounds, trying to get him calmed down enough to be groomed can be very challenging. Every time you try to do something, Coco's nose is right there getting in the way. This level of curiosity might be fun when you are trying to train her to find things or hunt, but when it comes to grooming time, it is nothing but a major pain in the backside. The good news is that with a little hard work on both your part and Coco's, you can get her to settle down and let you get the job done.
From Coco's point of view, she just wants to know everything about everything. From what tools you plan to use, to where your hands are going, to the smell of everything involved. It is just in her nature. By catering to this need and letting Coco satisfy her curiosity within limits, you can make the whole job much easier for both of you.
A curious dog can be a lot of fun, they simply never seem to get enough of searching around. Their noses are constantly sniffing and their eyes flick from one thing to another faster than you can keep up. By working with your dog to calm her down and let her satisfy her curiosity, you can make the grooming process go smoothly.
