In The Tub

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..

Another day at the shop.



 Todays wonderful grooming dog.Top photo is the finished product, middle photo is showing him all shaggy as he was when he walked in through the door, & the bottom photo shows him  on the table with the dryer being brushed dry. A grooming appointment should be a pleasant experience for a dog.

rainy day

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!

Thursday

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.
