Whether your dog is excited or nervous, a dog that is jumpy and moves around a lot during grooming is a challenge. It helps if you can figure out what your dog's issue is.
Is he a Nervous Nellie that is anxious around the sight and sound of a clipper, afraid of having his toenails cut and pulls his paw away the minute you pick it up, scared of water and struggles in the bath? Or is he just super excited about the attention and so full of energy he cannot stay still for grooming? While some of the tools and techniques you use to groom a jumpy dog will be the same regardless of the reason the dog is jumpy, some strategies may help an anxious dog versus an excited dog.
Your main goal will be to get your jumpy dog to stay still for grooming. Training, tools and techniques can all aid in achieving this so your jumpy Jack Russel, your hyper hound or your anxious Airedale can get the good grooming they need.
