HELP! My Samoyed hates getting groomed so I've given up?

Ive had my Samoyed for 4 years now and he's never liked being groomed and being a first time dog owner we thought we weren't doing it right, so we sent him to a "professional" dog groomer. But when we tried to groom him ourselves one time, he whimpered and got quite protective (for anyone who knows Samoyeds, they would know that's quite out of character). So we decided not to send him to that groomer any more because we later realised he had established a fear for shampoo bottles, hair-dryers, nail cutters etc..
So now I have to do it myself and he runs away from me at the sight of the grooming brushes - I have no idea what to do because I cant leave his coat ungroomed for too long cos it'll get knotted and be painful for him. Please, please help!

Hi there, I've had Samoyeds for over 25 years so I hope I can be of some help. I really do encourage Sammy owners to do their own grooming. A groomer just can't afford to spend enough time on a Samoyed to make it a pleasant experience. Well, unless you take him to the groomers every 3-4 weeks so that the job is easy, and even then most groomers won't have time to gently train the dog to accept the process. Nothing about grooming a Samoyed is difficult, it just takes time and patience to train your dog. He's a relatively young dog with a lot of grooming sessions in front of him, so it would be worth your time to teach him.

At first, think of the process as a training session and not a grooming session. The goal is really the training, and not much grooming will happen at first. If his coat is in good shape right now, he can probably get by without a deep grooming for a few weeks as you work on his issues. If his coat needs attention right now, you should probably find as gentle a professional groomer as you can and get him done one more time. Then your first sessions will be on a freshly groomed coat and you won't be pulling on his skin.

Please consider either buying or making a grooming table. Something about being up there just helps them stand still. If you want to save a $100, it's easy to make one. Go to Lowes.com and search for banquet table legs. They are about $20. Then get a piece of 3/4" plywood, they stock them in 2' x 4' pieces. Normal size grooming table for a Sammy is 2' x 3', so you could have them cut it down if you want, they will do it right in the store. Screw the legs onto the plywood, and cover with some vinyl carpet runner using a staple gun on the bottom edge. You will also want to get a grooming arm, just google it.

Food is the way to get a Samoyed to do almost anything, so get him up on the table and the first few times just give him lots of treats and let him down. Then get him used to being attached to the grooming arm, lots of pets and treats. Keep up the treats as you just hold the grooming tools next to him and then against him. If he refuses treats, he's a little too stressed and you should back up to the level where he is pretty happy with the process. If you go gradually, continue to reinforce with treats, and do NOT do anything unpleasant like pull on his skin he will come to accept the grooming.

Do you know how to line comb? That's the only way to successfully groom a Samoyed. If you brush over the top of the coat, the hair next to the skin can remain matted. Some people use a comb, some use a brush. Just personal preference. The key is to part the hair so you can see the skin and brush out from there. This video gives shows you how http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=szIij_zknNs
If there is a lot of hair coming out or it's been a while since the dog was groomed, I will use just a few teeth on the corner of the comb or brush to do just a little bit at at time, and/or pull down only a small amount of the next section of coat to brush. Whatever you have to do to avoid pulling on the dog's skin. Remember, you are trying to teach him that grooming is not unpleasant!

For baths, I highly recommend using a do it yourself dog wash. They have the proper equiment and nice mats in the tub for secure footing. Lots of dogs are better behaved in a strange environment than they would be at home. And it would also be worth your while to teach him to tolerate a dog blow dryer. It can take days for them to dry down to the skin, and that creates a risk for hot spots and other skin issues. Just avoid his head and ears, that can be quite scary for them.

I've gone on too long, I will try to put info on doing nails in another post.
