It was back to work in the grooming shop on Friday after taking a couple of days to myself. I enjoyed the trip to the Tellington TTouch Training, and I especially enjoyed giving a talk to the students about how beneficial TTouch can be to dog groomers, but I am so glad to be home. On the way home from the trip I stopped off in Fredericton to do a Tellington TTouch consultation with a sweet little Chinese Crested. The session went very well & the owner was very pleased with the calming effect that TTouch had on her dog. I hope that the owner will continue to work using TTouch to help the dog to regain her confidence.

Here is a picture of a Cocker Spaniel in the process of being bathed. As you can see the dog is secured in the tub by the use of a grooming noose. This prevents the dog from jumping out of the tub & doing itself an injury. At the shop I always use high quality shampoos & keep a variety on hand. My medicated shampoo & a hypo-allergenic shampoo are veterinary grade, purchased from my veterianrian..

No grooming today, yesterday I groomed the biggest Border Collie that I have ever seen the dog was not fat, just a very large dog for a Border Collie. Today I have errands to run & things to do. Tomorrow , Thursday & Friday I have grooming dogs booked. The shop has been open for 5 weeks now, and I am very pleased at the response from the local area. Getting lots of favourable feedback too!

Back from a couple of days off. I had a wonderful cat in for grooming this morning. It has been a while since I have been able to work on cats. The shop at the boarding kennel was too close to the noise of the boarding dogs for cats to be able to relax & feel comfortable, so I stopped working on cats. The new shop is an ideal place to be able to groom a cat in a peaceful calm quiet setting. I really enjoyed working on Maya the white long haired kitty this morning.

Happy Victoria Day to Everyone! Today is a holiday here, so no grooming today. Another grey cool day here. I really wish that the weather would clear up & warm up. It would be nice to get the veggie garden planted. We are behind schedule this year compared to last. Here are a few more pictures from the shop, a couple of before & afters, & a pic of two brothers waiting to go home.
