    Default Naughty when being brushed!

    Sorry everyone I am just full of questions being a new bully mommy I want to make sure I am doing everything right ..I bought the furminator brush to brush the puppies with and I also use the rubber glove thing....Cooper hates to be brush with either of them. He tries biting the brush and when I use the glove is trying to get away from me the whole time...Any suggestions. I try to do both glove and brush everyday (or is that too much)? He wasn't a huge shedder but he just recently got fixed and he stayed over night when that was done and when he came back it was like his fur was just falling out! You couldn't pet him without having hair all over. He has slowed down on the shedding now, I didn't know if it was because he got fixed or if it was losing baby hair. Any recommendations on how to make brushing not so much a chore or any good tools that you all have found that work good and slow down the shedding?

    Anesthesia will cause them to loose their hair for awhile. This too shall pass. I feed mine salmon oil in their food and they dont shed much. I just use the rubber brush on mine maybe once or twice a week.

    They will also lose hair when stressed or excited. Relax, it will all be fine. If you can relax and be confident, your pup will pick up on this too. He will feel more comfortable. Exhale sweetie

    I brush penny in the bath tub. This helps with keeping her from running away & she knows I'm going to be touching/messing with her anyway. It has helped a ton!

    Once or twice a week is fine... I usually only do it in the summer/fall which is when my guys seem to shed the most

    Just keep working him and he will get the hang of it. Tell him no when he starts trying to bite it

    In the beginning I used treats when I brushed. Treat and stroke, treat and stroke, now he loves to be brushed.

    It also helps to keep the hair from fluttering all over the house - I can just wipe it out

    I have heard a lot of people talking about the salmon oil....where do you get it and how much do you give your bully? Also I have heard of giving the yogurt (dunno if that was for shedding or what) but does it matter what kind of yogurt?

    I give these guys PLAIN yogurt. I'm not sure why I do it - but they love it. Little scoop - 1/8 to 1/4 cup blopped on top of dinner.

    Probiotics? Yeah...I think that's why.....
