Grooming a big dog can be hard enough all by itself, but when you have a dog like Tilly that just wants to play instead of stand still to be groomed, it gets that much more challenging. Being the owner of a playful dog like Tilly can be a blast; you can teach her lots of different tricks, take her to the beach, the park, or simply out in your backyard and have fun with her. But, when it comes time to groom her, she needs to be able to stand still for you to get the job done. Thankfully, this is something you can train her to do, provided you are willing to put in the effort.
The only real problem with a playful pup like Tilly is that the last thing she wants to do is settle down long enough for you to groom her. From her point of view, everything is a game. Your job is to come up with ways to take all of this playful energy, get it under control, and then make it work towards the goal.
When you have a playful pooch like Tilly, teaching her there is more to life than non-stop playing can be challenging. The big thing to remember is that the more you work with Tilly, the easier grooming will get for both of you. Stick with it and make it fun!
