The 4 Step Method

Cotton has never been on a grooming table in her very short (no pun intended) life. So, when the snazzy-grooming-table was delivered last week I needed to figure out a way of introducing the two of them.

"Snazzy-grooming-table meet Cotton."

"Cotton, meet snazzy-grooming-table."

That didn't cut it.

Hmmm, what does Cotton love more than me? More than the welcoming lap in the La-Z-boy each night? That's simple, food.

Step One: Apply two front feet on table and lean toward the food dish filled with dinner.

Step Two: Apply a third foot, tentatively, knowing the food outweighs the perceived danger of the snazzy-grooming-table.

Step Three: Put all four paws on the table, dine quickly before something Earth-shattering happens.

And, Step Four: Call it a night, lick your lips and bid the snazzy-grooming-table adieu.

Mission Accomplished.

Next assignment, if she chooses to accept it: Stand quietly on the snazzy-grooming-table with it's legs extended, waaaaaay above floor level!

Good luck with your next phase! My dog loves to get in the recliner with either me or my husband each night and stretches out on our legs like a warm blanket. :)
