Furious Dog Seething with Rage, Then Camera Captures Moment Patient Groomer Calms Him

Share

Dogs are some of our best friends. They’ve become more and more integral in our lives, basically living like four-legged humans in many households.

But no matter how well trained your dog is or how much you spruce them up, they are still animals. They roll in filth, eat trash, and love being outside in nature.

Bath time is enough of an ordeal for most dog owners. Even dogs who love swimming in pools or wading in streams seldom enjoy a nonnegotiable bath time.

There are plenty of dog breeds who need a little more effort to stay tidy. Their hair constantly grows, and they need haircuts — just like us!

Unlike us, their hair covers their entire bodies, so the work is a little more intensive. Finding a good groomer who is both skilled and patient can be difficult.

Despite how easy they make it look, grooming can be very difficult. Different breeds have different requirements.



Some dogs have coats so thick that the clippers barely get through them. Others have dense undercoats and shed frequently.

Besides the pure skill level and familiarity with breed characteristics that a groomer has to have, groomers also have to be able to deal with a wide variety of personalities.

Just like some dogs hate baths, others hate grooming. They’re picky about their feet and ears, they don’t like clippers, or they don’t like brushes.



There are several reasons for this kind of behavior. Some dogs just don’t like strangers, period — and they certainly don’t like strangers getting all handsy with them.

Others have had negative experiences. Nails clipped too short and clipper burns can scar a dog more than just physically.

In the video below, you can see a groomer attempting to brush what looks like a Shiba Inu. This breed of dog has what’s known as a “double coat”: wiry, long, outer hairs over a shorter, dense, soft coat.

This is what makes them look so perfectly fluffy, but it also means they shed a lot and need a decent amount of grooming to remove all the dead undercoat and keep it from matting.



The groomer here calmly restrains the dog by using her left hand to firmly hold its harness, which keeps the flailing dog from injuring itself or her.

The dog is reacting to the brushing. He wants none of it. But being petted is okay — so the groomer calms him down by gently petting him and them quickly picking up the brush and continuing to “pet” him.

There have been plenty of cases of groomers mishandling dogs and treating them roughly when they misbehave, but this groomer calmly but assertively controls the situation and is able to relax the dog and get the job done. Nice work!
