    Hello everyone! I am a new dog owner here. Just adopted a short haired mixed breed dog from the pound. Wanna get insights here on DIY grooming I think my dog is low maintenance anyway.

    I missed this earlier in the week. Welcome. I think we all want to know how much know, and ask questions for answers. A picture would really help too. Do you know how to do nails? Have you ever bathed a dog before? Will you do it in your personal tub or ?

    Welcome, chiko! Yes.. we need pictures if you don't have them posted yet. I see 5 posts.. so I'll search for them.

    Well, if you read through some of my posts, you will see my new puppy decided to flip out over his nails a couple of months ago. We work daily on counter conditioning. That is getting him to change his mind on nail trimming. It's been a challenge but I can see the light at the end of the tunnel.

    Nail trimming may be your biggest challenge. Most of my customers bathe their dogs almost weekly, so that's a plus for me. Some don't. My puppy is very short haired and I'm using a conditioning shampoo on him that I bought from Ryan's Pet Supplies.

    My foster lab, I think has ringworm.. so that's a whole different ball of wax for me.

    So let us know how we can help you. Oh one thing.. I love clicker training! Absolutely the best. Karen Pryor.
