|Yes, you CAN do this, mol, don't be nervous, he will pick up on that, mol, feel in your mind, you can do this.
As lessons advance, you may, on occassion, have a few set backs. Don't get upset, never yell at him, if he gets away, just calmly go get him, put him back on the table, give him a treat. I had a heck of a time, teaching Cruiser to blow dry, he was horrible in the beginning, had to wrap him in a towel, like a cocoon, he would struggle struggle struggle. Didn't think he would ever graduate Blow Drying School, then one day, the light bulb went on, mol, now he just sits there. Bump and Cowboy picked it up pretty quickly, I even taught the kittens to stand on their hind legs, and put thier paws against the cubbards above the sink, so I can wash and rinse their tummy's. I have to put Bump's front end in the other sink, to wash his back end, mol, like trying to wash a horse in the sink. He knows the drill, he just does it.
Feel free to paw mail me anytime, remember its just alot alot of patience.
