Gatsby loves to be brushed. As soon as I get his brush out, he gets so excited and jumps up and down.

I have to hold a Kong filled with Peanut Butter between my knees to distract Fenway while I brush him.

Neither of my dogs really have long hair, except my wirehair doxie has her beard which needs combing occasionally, but she doesn't mind it for the most part. :)

Gracie-belle has a maintenance-free coat, thank heavens. She gets the Furminator every once in a while, which she doesn't adore, but she does let me use it. Nail clipping, however...

Zena adores being brushed when she wants to be. Sometimes she just wants to be left alone though and brushing means brushing her while she walks around.

Oliver absolutely adores being groomed every evening! If he isn't already waiting patiently by his comb, all I have to do is shout "Oliver want the combings?" and he comes running. He then rolls around on the floor and "shows" me exactly where I need to comb him, all the while purring like crazy! :true:

Nox doesn't hate it but she doesn't love it. I can usually keep her calm with the promise of treats at the end, but if I don't get her brushed quickly then she starts to get really upset with me. She doesn't hiss, scratch, or bite but she makes it darn near impossible to brush her.

My boxer HATES it. I think I was too forceful when she was a puppy. It's always a struggle and now I bribe with tons of treats but she doesn't like it.
I have two long haired non-shedding doggies, so they had to get used to weekly brushing as soon as they were adopted. Both woofies tolerate it well, but my O.E. sheepdog really enjoys having her hair brushed because she gets to many compliments when she is all fluffed out.

Sweet Minou loves brushytime. Milo, however, hates it — hissing and scratching all the way. It's unfortunate because Miles is the one who really needs it.
