Yes I did :)
Yes. I bathe all my dogs. We don’t have a bather (but I used to be the bather about a year ago…then i upgraded lol)
This is Chester, the Welsh Terrier I groomed today. He’s such a handsome and super sweet boy.
After he went home, the owner called our office and told the receptionist that Chester has never been groomed this well before! He’s never looked better!! She said I did an excellent job!!
Her compliment made my day…no, it made my week! The past week has been so busy and so rough and I’ve been feeling so down lately. What Chester’s mom said just made me so very happy! I needed that so badly! :)
Hi There!!! Thank you!! *hug* ^_^
Also, how did you go about doing that? Did you clip with the grain or against?
I clipped with the grain to get the initial pattern. then against to make it tight.
How much time did this take?
I think about 30 minutes…more or less…
Oh my gosh did all that cost a fortune!!
yeah….I saved up all my tips from grooming at work and also half of my tax return. Totally Worth It!!! :)
I hope that I get that good one of these days!
You will! Don’t worry! Practice, Practice, Practice! ^_^
So, at the Atlanta Pet Fair, I got this super tiny clipper cuz I wanted to try shaving a design into my dog’s back.
So I finally got around to it today. And here’s the result! A “Shaved Tattoo!!” Looks pretty neat!!!! I’m pretty happy about it being that it was my first try. I may see if I can get this as an added service where I work.
(it’ll be an expensive service though cuz time-consuming)
I told you I’d do it one day and here it is…… a Before and After picture of my Mini Schnauzer, Sasha!
Three dogs I groomed that I did not get a before pic of. The two at the bottom are regulars that come in every 2-4 weeks. The pomeranian at the top had a full coat and the owner wanted a lion cut. :)
