For the most part, having a friendly family pooch like Trixie is a lot of fun. There doesn't seem to be much of anything she doesn't enjoy doing. Well, that is until the time comes for her weekly grooming. Suddenly all that friendliness can be a bit overwhelming unless you learn how to channel it. The ideal situation would be one in which her friendliness actually makes the grooming process fun for both of you rather than just another chore you have to do every week.
Chances are good that Trixie is far more interested in playing with you or giving you kisses than she is about letting you grooming her. Keep in mind a tired dog is always much easier to deal than one who is full of vim, vigor, and vitality. Take your time and let Trixie set the pace, follow her lead to success.
The only thing on Trixie's mind is to play and make her human family members happy. She likes everyone and is always free with the kisses to show it. Your job is to teach her that grooming time can be a lot of fun without the need to go over the top in affectionate displays. Take your time and before you know it, both of you will have hit your groove.
