How to best describe a detached dog... one that seems to have very little interest in anything that is going on around him. While unusual, this type of behavior can make grooming very challenging in some ways and much easier in others. In most cases, you should be able to bring your disinterested darling into the room you plan to use for grooming and beyond having to get him to move around, get the job done with minimal stress for either of you. It should not take long for your pal to learn what is expected of him, making grooming much easier.
With this type of dog, you are far less likely to have behavior problems. But keep in mind, even the most detached pup can get skittish around grooming tools. You should use similar training methods used to calm other dogs and get them ready to be groomed.
Grooming a detached dog can be harder than it seems, but as long as you are willing to work with him, you can teach him to let you groom him. Grooming can be a great time to bond and in time, your pup will come to look forward to his weekly grooming sessions with you.
