I don't know if this is a result of training, security-growth or just an "it's-that-kind-of-day" thing:
Yesterday while grooming my 6 yr old stdbd she would put her head right down to the floor and nuzzle the cement or the dirt or whatever was there. If I stopped, raised her head and then started again, she'd put her head back down. Completely stress-free as far as I could see. Maybe she's finally learning how to chill and this is her comfort position for grooming?
BTW, I have spent quite a bit of time over the last few months encouraging her to keep her head down, but not that far down!
Anyone else ever see this?
