How To Keep Your Dog From Biting The Vet and Squirming On the Grooming Table?
It’s often overlooked, but getting your dog used to being touched and handled is good for your dog. It will make it easier on you, your dog, and staff for grooming appointments, veterinary exams, wiping off wet paws, or any other time that they need to be handled.
Teaching your dog that it’s ok to be handled and touched will allow you to better care for them, not to mention making being handled a lot less stressful for your dog.
For some dogs this comes naturally, but for others, the process of you touching their feet, looking in their mouth, eyes or ears is something that they need to be trained to accept. The more you practice with them, the more comfortable they will become. Make sure to add this into your training repertoire. I promise it will make your life a lot easier when it comes to handling your pet!
