Zoe is so cute how old is she? She has a pretty coat. Mia's coat at 6 months is like cotten. I don't know if this will change but you can brush and comb her out and 10 minutes later she looks like a muppet. I think I need to try a different conditioner and maybe that would help?

How thick are the bands that you are using? Where did you get them? I use the very thinnest bands that I can get away with and I don't have a problem with any of my dogs bulldozing until they get their topknots out. If they can't really feel it, it doesn't bother them. I wouldn't put in any bows or barrettes in until she gets used to just having a topknot in place, slow and easy to get her started!!!

Hi Stacy,
Wow Andrew is Handsome! The bands are extremely thin, I think I eithier got them from the pharmacy or Sally's beauty supply. She has a harder time getting them out but by the time she gets the shorter hair out you cant even tell the band is still in. Too funny! She is a Tom Boy.

Ok I combed her hair today, put in her top knot and then shaved her paws,clipped her nails and tidied up her little lady parts. Hahahaha talk about distracted!!! That was at 12pm and its 430pm here and her top knot is still in Thanks for the advice and I will continue to work on using the distraction method.
