Some other options that you could consider: With Abby being only 8 years old, things will continue to get worse if she is forced to be groomed without reducing her anxiety level.My preference would be to sedate her at your veterinarian’s office for this round of grooming and then work on the desensitization over the next 3-6 months.

Unfortunately some dogs have so much anxiety and/or aggression, either because of genetics or past experiences, it is impossible to groom them without some form of sedation.

If such dogs were used to being handled and well-socialized, most likely they would accept being groomed as a normal part of life.

Some dogs become aggressive out of fear, while others act like schoolyard bullies, but they usually drop the dramatics once they have learned to trust and respect you as their leader. Because your time and skill are valuable commodities, they must expect to pay more for your services than those fortunate folks whose dogs are a breeze to groom.

We have to muzzle her and myself and husband have to hold her down(well try to hold her) so the groomer can try to get some hair off…problem is her two front legs are a mess…tons of hair on them…she WON’T let the groomer near them it’s awful. Hi Lorie, It’s heartbreaking to hear how Abby responds to her grooming appointments.
