Nothing can be better than having a happy fun-loving dog for a family pet. Your best bud loves to play and have a great time with the family. When it comes to grooming, you would think his being so happy would make it easier. However, a happy dog is also a dog who might just have a hard time settling down to be groomed.
The trick is to curb his happy energy and redirect it towards being more useful in helping to make the grooming process go more smoothly. You might also find that grooming in short sessions can be more successful and effective than trying to do it all at once until he is comfortable with being groomed.
Your playful pooch isn't really trying to be disobedient or cause a fuss, it’s just that he is so darned happy, he can't contain his joy. He just wants to share it with everyone and standing still to be groomed isn't his idea of fun. Take your time and let him see that being groomed can be fun too.
To a happy pooch, every day is simply another day to have fun with his family. Keep the grooming sessions short and regular if you want the best chance of success. If you work together to make grooming fun, your pup will soon start looking forward to being groomed instead of trying to run away and play.
