I have a 13-week old puppy who has or will have a long double coat and he will need brushing 2 or 3 times a week unless he is shedding, then daily. He is a mini AED. With me he's squirmy and nippy and I don't have enough hands to brush him. With strangers, he's reserved and shy and does not bite at all. My husband says he bites us because he loves us and that, in a way, is true. Do you think I would be better off taking him to a groomer a few times to get him more comfortable with it or should I just continue doing as good a job as I can for now? I will probably have to get him a grooming arm for my table eventually. I handle him all over, but he's too nippy and squirmy with me to do a really thorough job brushing him. I still have some time to work with him before he gets his adult coat. I tried to get my husband to hold a treat in his hand and let the puppy work a little bit to get at it and then do it over. I had to keep reminding him to get another treat and not give them so fast. Sigh! He's harder to train than the puppy.
