My dog is fairly cooperative with my home grooms, the only part he's not so good at is that he hates to stand up, he'd prefer to lie down and take a nice nap while i'm trying to clip him. lol. Not helpful. Will a grooming arm keep him standing? or will he just sit and i'll need something else to keep him standing. thanks.

You can use a 2nd grooming arm to hold up his rear.

This looks interesting. Read the reviews.

Although I must say, I would love it if Carmen would just lie down and let me get her armpits, belly, legs etc. Then I could just flip her on her other side to do the rest. Sounds ideal. Are they supposed to lie down for part of it or should they stand the whole time and you just try to get whatever you can of the underside? Carmen wouldn't lie down at all and now she's all shaved except for her armpits! Very crunchy granola looking.

I never want a dog to lie down during grooming. It makes everything harder. lol Armpits are easily done if you life the leg, and pull slightly off to themside.

Just a question for Graco22, in your opinion what is the best way to clear the armpits, with thinners or with an Arco?
