Australian Shepherd Grooming Question
by Kim Simpson
(Poland, Me, USA)
How can I get my Aussie to like being groomed?
I have tried using a comb, a FURminator, and brush. Each time I try to comb her, she bites at the grooming tools. I have taken her twice to a groomer. The first time she came out fine and the second time, she shaved her. My intent is to keep her from getting mats. Lately I've been having her relax on the couch and while we cuddle I try to gently comb through her hair. Help! Anyone have any good tips?
