Shaving a dog can be challenging enough for an experienced groomer. But when you are trying to take care of the task yourself and Jody won't sit still for a second, it takes the challenge to a whole new level. Let's face it, you can't groom her if she keeps moving, it just isn't possible! Or is it? Maybe not in quite the sense you are thinking. The only way to successfully and safely shave a dog that won't sit still is to teach her to sit still. Sounds simple enough. But the road to this goal is paved with many bumps and traps along the way. You must be ready to work with your pup to gain her trust and to give her a good reason to sit still while you give her a good shave with proper grooming techniques.
An excited pup like Jody has no interest in sitting still for much of anything, let alone for long enough to be shaved. But with time, patience, and the right forms of encouragement, you should be able to get her calmed down enough to let you shave her. Keep in mind, you may need to take 'wiggle breaks' throughout the process to help Jody stay still the rest of the time.
Shaving a dog that seems to be constantly in motion present its very own set of unique challenges. The good news is that the more you work with your pup to get him or her to settle down for grooming and shaving, the stronger the bond between the two of you will grow. Take your time and be patient with your wiggly pup and it'll certainly pay off in the long run.
