Wrigley has been groomed and bathed by me since I got him at 11 weeks. He love taking bathes and getting brushed. The only challenge I have is cutting his nails since he always tries to squirm away. As far as the products I use I recommend the FURminator. I use it twicr a week to deshed him and get all his loose fur off. It has helped us a lot with his shedding. A little costly but well worth the money.
