Another busy day here at Groom Dog. Lots of bookings coming in particularly in the run up to Christmas, so don’t forget to call me on 07403 732327 if you want your Dog’s groomed in time for Christmas.
Anyway, on with today’s tale,
I can;t see anything, Mum.
Monkey arrived this morning, for his first ever Groom and was a little unsure when Mum dropped him off and left him with me (I think Mum was quite nervous too). Monkey was very apprehensive about the hair dryer, so after trying the blaster/ finisher at which he was very vocal about not liking it, we moved swiftly on to the hand held dryer at a high setting. Monkey was a little quieter, but still wasn’t appreciating it, so we moved to the lowest setting, which he was ok with (phew !!). (Although, I hope by the time he has grown his double coat, we have got him used to the bigger hairdryer, or it might take quite a long time to get him dry
A short two hours later, after his brush out, bath and dry, Monkey had relaxed enough to lie down and start to fall off to sleep.
A little lie down, perhaps.
Whilst I was styling his face, he did actually fall asleep on me, but bless him, he is only 6 months old and it takes quite a bit of time to groom him. He was very excited tho’ when Mum turned up to collect him and promised to take him straight to the beach.
I hope he stayed clean for her, so Dad could have a bit of a giggle at his new hairstyle
I am sooooo handsome
I need help
Then it was time for Vincent to arrive, a very hairy Airedale Terrier, who had gone a few weeks without his usual handstrip.
Vincent is an extremely placed and loving dog and just stood on the table and let me hand strip him. He was a little uncertain of the bath, but after a bit of a struggle I got him into it, and again, he just accepted being washed and shampooed. He did smell and feel absolutely soft and gorgeous afterwards.
Wot a handsome chappy I am
Mum had mentioned that Vincent was her 5th Airedale, so I was really hoping that she loved my style … and she did. Promised to return again in about 3 months time to have him groomed again.
Both the dogs today, were well behaved with lovely owners and I hope, enjoyed their grooms in the end.
I know I did
Til next time …. don’t forget to call me on 07403 732327 if you want to discuss your dog requirements and/or make a booking.
