#2: Patience…and LOTS of it!
Always remember to be patient with your pup and remember that dogs are creatures of habit, so new situations can be scary. Taking things too fast or losing your cool, just stresses your pooch out more. So, just take things one step at a time. If you feel your frustration levels rising, just give your furry friend a gently pat and step away for a while.
Dogs can sense when your mood changes, so talking to your pup as you set everything up and go through the process is truly beneficial. Keep in mind, you might not even be able to clean just one ear, but be patient. Celebrating little victories will help your dog feel more comfortable and willing to give it another try another day.
