My pup hates being held, picked-up, being groomed!
I've had my 6 mos. old Yorkie-Poo since he was 6 wks. old. All along, he's freaked out over being picked-up, held, groomed, restrained. He fights, growls, struggles, tries to escape, yelps, etc. Basically acts like I'm trying to kill him & he's fighting for his life! Then he actually holds a grudge for as long as a couple of days. I've had Poodles, Terriers, Afghans, & mixes. NONE have freaked-out like this guy has. What on earth is wrong with him, & what can I do to fix it??? I've tried treats, to no avail. PLEASE HELP??!!??
