  9. d webb says:

    why use a groomer? because there are a lot of people who just don't know how to clip a dogs coat, because a lot of people cannot keep up with their dog's coat demands! Also Dog groomers Need to stay in business just like any other profession! And Dog's deserve alittle pampering that's why "hire a groomer" instead of being a cheap scape!

    Well I happen to enjoy grooming my dog that is why I don't use a groomer. And besides in this economy we all have to cut back or should I say tighten the belt. I'll tell you what if you are a groomer why don't you lower your prices to accomodate for people who use gas to get to your shop?

  11. d webb says:

    That's great if you know what your doing but if you dont know what your doing like soooo many people online (then they have no business clipping their own dogs and especially showing "how to videos" to other online! My prices are as LOW as i am willing to charge (18.00 PER do) and that's very very reasonable considering most groomers charge 45.00 PLUS in the area!

    Scary. No 40 blade is not for basic haircuts. More like for vet surgery.

  21. Crooked Bunny says:

    "Step 2: gently brush or comb your dog to remove any tangles from their coat"

    woman drags the brush through the dog's fur and skin and pulls the creature by their leg across the counter

    "Having a pet can reduce medical problems aggravated by stress"

    By passing on the medical problems to the animal by rough treatment instead.
