I've been brushing Rocky every day since he was a baby. He still doesn't let me brush his underneath parts. Under his legs is the hardest and that's where he gets matted. I clean his face every day. He's pretty good for that, but now that I think of it he used to be even better. He absolutely won't allow me to brush his teeth. I've tried a couple of weeks of saying..."Teeth" and putting my finger in his mouth and massaging his gums. He bites on my fingers. I tried a little rubber thing I put on my finger and he growls at it and wants to play with it by biting it. He's acting like the terrible two's age in a child. I have no idea how to get him to stay still and stand. Most times I put him on the counter in the bathroom. When I blow him dry he's on my lap...I'm sitting on the tub and he's constantly laying down so I can't brush him. Then I go to the bathroom counter and he turns back and forth and lays down. I'm constantly picking him up and saying, "Stand." When he's good I praise him, but that's just for a few seconds at a time. :blink:What's a Mom to do?
