Anybody have any tips or tricks for grooming a Collie cross?  Today I
finally managed to get to a store with dog brushes & bought a stiff pin
brush.  I had to brush her while she was lying down on her side on the bed
since she wouldn't stand & really didn't seem to want to be there, she had
her ears pinned back & just kinda stared into space the whole time.  I did
manage to brush her & get 5 brushfulls of hair out of her & my mom
complimented me on how shiny she was after I was through.  She had a mat
starting to form on her inner thigh so I guess that's the spot to watch, on
the Setter it was in her 'armpits'.  Her tail was slightly snarled too, I
guess I'll just have to brush her back end every other day & do a full body
twice a week.  We plan to make a groomers appointment for her sometime
within the next week or 2, all she needs is her nails clipped & her foot
hair trimmed up so it shouldn't take more than 10 to 15 minutes.  Thankfully
that's all she really seems to need in the way of professional grooming.
