I just bought a Mason Pearson brush for Jaspar (primarily) at the dog show yesterday. A key reason is that he needs more grooming than Leo as he has a finer coat that mats frustratingly easily (hoping that will change as his adult coat comes in) and he also HATES being brushed and groomed. Even though I went by the book, brushing him every week from 8 weeks old, using a very soft puppy brush! It's the metal pin brishes he especially hates, event he sound of it seems to annoy him.
New strategies were called for. I've been working on doing a bit at a time and praising and giving a little treat at the end of a session. But I also decided to try a Mason Pearson. Expensive icon_yikes but last night is the first time he was tolerant of a brushing. Not thrilled with it, but he looked so nice at the end as the brush gave a very nice fluffy look to him.
Just wonder what else people use, or what others have to say about Mason Pearsons? (besides wallet damage! )
