Dog Massage Tip

Martha Stewart Living Television

In order to get your dog accustomed to basic grooming rituals such as nail clipping, start massaging his toes by squeezing the toe and nail. In addition, gently squeezing and pulling a dog's ears allow him to be comfortable when you clean the ear canal later on. Playing with his mouth will also prepare him for teeth brushing.
