If you have struggled with your small and anxious dog each time he needs to be groomed, it might be time to think about how to make him more comfortable so your grooming sessions are easier. Does your small dog often whine, cry, bark, or nip at your fingers or the tools you are using while grooming, or even pee all over your grooming table when it's time to be brushed or have his haircut? If your little guy does this, he's an anxious pup and grooming is not his favorite task. Remain calm and set him up for better grooming sessions to come.
It doesn't matter why your little guy is anxious and scared each time you bring out of brush or a pair of scissors. The reality for him is this is not his favorite thing, and he would rather do just about anything else than to be groomed. Do not underestimate the power of treats, a calm voice, and tons of patience.
