Thanks Dog Lover
Muzzlin eh?? I'm going to try that!
People say animals don't feel etc ... when I muzzle Kuma he shoots me the dirtiest looks ever as if to say, "Just wait till this is off lady ! " But knowing he likes the muzzle, he might relate to happy thoughts when he's being trimmed.
And It must be a GSD trait, the arm holding thing... Thanks for the advise.
