There is nothing quite like having a well-socialized dog like Joey. He seems to love just about everyone and everything. While some pups seem to be born this way, all dogs should be worked with until they are well-socialized around both people and other dogs. However, working with a social pup can be especially challenging when you are trying to groom him and all he wants to do is jump off the grooming table to say hi to another family member or a guest. You can either start out restraining him or you can work with him to calm him down enough to be groomed safely.
Even the most social of dogs, may not like being groomed. Between being placed on a grooming table and hooked to a safety leash and all of the tools you typically use for grooming, no one can blame Joey for being just a little nervous. One way to overcome this nervousness is to find ways to keep your pup's mind occupied while you work.
The biggest problem with trying to groom a very social dog like Joey, is that he is far more interested in socializing. Take your time letting him get used to being on the table and your touch with the brush and other tools. Keep talking to him and make the whole process a bonding experience for both of you.
