Handling your dog for basic care and grooming is essential. Here our Shiloh Shepherd Oliver is getting some grooming on his ears. He is enjoying licking peanut butter off my hand. Short breaks and short sessions are ideal for your dog to become comfortable with this type of handling. Although Oliver did well this was a reminder that I need to do more work with him so that he is even more comfortable with such handling. A great reminder that we must keep practicing and working on things to really see positive results.
