My parents' standard poodle won't let me fix her eyes. It gets dirty a lot. She walks away from me because she doesn't want her eyes cleaned. My girlfriend's Maltese almost bit me once because he does not like eye repairs either. My rottweiler can deal with eye repairs.
Recently, my Mom's brother was in town and he helped with fixing the poodle's eyes. I think it is better to have different people fix her eyes so that I don't have to do it and lose trust with the poodle.
