    Hi Everyone,
    just thought I would drop a line and say hi there.
    I have just taken on a 4 year old black cocker spaniel by the name of Bernard. Only had him last Saturday & he has settled down so well, especially with my border terrier, Jessie. I had a working cocker for 12 years & lost her last sept.
    The only problem is Bernard doesn't like being brushed or combed. I can see it becoming a problem as his ears are soon going to get matted up.I have tried to make a game of it, but one look at the brush and he runs a mile. I don't want to force the issue with him as he has been so good in every other way.
    Any suggestions would be welcome!

    Cheers
    Chris

    Hi and welcome, Have you thought about those new gloves for grooming dogs and cats, they are really good and the dog wont know it is a brush type of thing, worth a try. Sorry to hear about your other dog. But good luck with this one. He sounds really nice.
