Brushing 8 Week Old Australian Shepherd Puppy


I have an eight week old Aussie puppy that hates to be brushed. How do I get him to relax and stop biting the brush?

Brushing
by: Anonymous

To get our Aussies used to being brushed, I would give them a treat (like a bully stick) before brushing. Once they were into chewing, I would then start brushing. They love to be brushed now, and I only resort to the bully stick when I need to brush them a lot when they are heavily shedding.
