be slowly desensitize a dog to this process. You need to proceed slowly,
respect the dog's limits, praise and reward lavishly so the dog will learn to
tolerate it. Only you know your dog and how he or she may respond.

harmed by it's exuberance or fear or if the dog could display an aggressive
behavior. Follow all product safety instructions provided by individual
