I'll admit, as a former groomer I have high standards. I need a groomer that will do the following.
Bathe my big white beastie
Put on a conditioner
Clean his ears
Shave in between his pads and do a light sani
Hand blow dry
Simple, right? AND IM WILLING TO PAY FOR EACH SERVICE
Yet every time I explain what I want, even writing it down for them, I'm handed back an unbrushed mess that was dumped a bottle of dilute, no scrubbing, rinsed, and tossed in a cage dryer.
He's been prepped for grooming like a conformation dog. He's a saint.
Please COTH, tell me someone knows of a groomer with work ethic!
My sister is a pet groomer who works at the Petco off Capital. I know a lot of people don't like Petco's but she is a very experienced groomer (over 13 years I think). She shows and grooms her minature poodles so is quite familier with managing coat and hand drying dogs! Anyway, call and ask for Kristina 919-877-9608 if you are interested.
