    i groomed a poodle today!

    Advertisements


    it was so exciting!

    and very scary!

    i did the whole clean shaven face and feet
    shaved down the body, bathed it, then scissored everything up! including the topknot! (which is the hard part ) it was my first poodle ever! and although it didn't go out looking great, because obviously it was my first, it went out looking pretty damn decent!

    If you save one dog you won't change the world--but surely the world will change for that one dog.

    no, i'm not going to school for grooming. i'm being taught by my manager and the other groomers in the salon.

    now i just gotta find some way to pull $500 out my bum for supplies.

    Well I wished one of you two lived in Germany by me. My poor baby hasn't been groomed since we left the states back in April & she's a schnauzer. I don't have my drivers lic over here! I am waiting on the state of Texas for that whole ordeal & dh never has time to take her because the closest groomer is 30 minutes away!!! I have worked for a vet for the past 7 years so I know the basics & tried my self but she was abused before I adopted her & so she tries to bite me & the clipper's. I know that groomers know how to handle these kind of dogs better than I do. I know my groomer back home had a time with her. SHE'S BAD!!!! I do keep the poopy path trimmed & the hair out of her eyes & ears trimmed. She doesn't look that bad because I do scissor cut her some but I can't do it the way she is supposed to be done!!!!
