I’ve been using a non-slip mat on my washer to brush Cooper and keep all the brushes etc. on the dryer. He seems fine with the brushing. Yesterday he had his first bath and did reasonably well with that. lol. What shampoo does everyone use? I tried Burt’s Bees for puppies and his coat seemed great. His coat seems to be blowing out not sure if that would be the warmer weather or starting to lose his puppy coat? Every day is a new adventure !
