Just bring out a brush. Actually, all I have to do is ask one of my girls, "Please hand me that brush/poodle comb," and even if all three of my Poodles are lounging on the sofas, they will RAPIDLY vacate the premises. They HATE being brushed. Think of it as the Ultimate Torture. Which is too bad. If they didn't like being brushed, they should have been born a Xoloitzcuintli.
But there is Someone in our household who LOVES being brushed. She is brushed every night and her fur is soft as satin. Libby is usually grouchy, but not when you bring out the brush.
Do you think she's enjoying this or what?
