For doggies, who had a rough start and or no experience with grooming before, training and desensitization are the most gentle ways to earn their trust back. (Rather than using muzzles and forcing them to get over with it.)
Finding the dog's triggers and working on them will soon result in a comfortable canine, without those frightening late discomfort signs (biting, growling, snapping, etc.), without using muzzles, harnesses or the threat of sedation for grooming later down the road.
"I especially enjoy working with doggies who need training and/or desensitization, because meanwhile, I am making a dog's day, they help me grow as a dog trainer and they sharpen my creativity." ~ Groomer Chick
