We are super buzzing about getting this episode to your earholes! Why (we hear you holla)? Because this one is a all about the fascinating subject of trust based grooming. We are thrilled to be joined by the wonderful Sue Williamson to talk all about her book "Taking The Grrr Out Of Grooming". This incredible book gives you all the knowledge you'll need to start introducing a kinder a more "dog-centric" grooming regime, as well as giving you the practical skills to overcome some of those grooming/handling issues.
