The dreaded brush - How to break in good habits early
(sorry for the duplicate post - also in dog grooming)
Murray has extremely soft hair-like coat and is an amazing pup. Super chill when I clip his nails and generally cooperative when being bathed but he is not fond of the brush.
I usually brush him when he's in a relaxed state but he tends to growl and lunge (bite) for the brush while I am brushing him.
Assuming I am brushing him correctly which I think I am, how do I teach him to embrace getting brushed. I can tell that he likes the feeling of being brushed but the closer I get to his neck and face is when he exhibits aggressive behavior towards the brush .
Any and all input is appreciated!! The type of coat he has requires alot of attention but it's worth it!!
