Top notch groomer! I love it when there is enough trust and skill to let the groomer bring out the best in the dog. Also note the "happy face" expression on the dog, nice and relaxed. Definitely a keeper. I can spot most owner-groomed dogs a mile away!

I love the new cut! Yes I do my own I had worked at a salon for years and watched human hair cuts. It took over a year for me to get the nerve to just do it and I had also decided not to show Zoey any more. I really was happy with the job I did. Maybe I can down load a picture. No my computer isn't working I think I started a trend called Zoeys first hair cut?

When you find a great groomer you should stick with them. So many of us can't find a good one like you have. This is one reason we keep ours in full coat!

She looks great! I love her before and I love her after too! It seems so rare that someone posts an after shot of a clip they love and a wonderful groomer story.....I am thrilled to see a wonderful outcome!

Hehe, you guys actually do a nice job grooming. I think of all the pics I've seen, and I've looked at tons of photos on here, I've only seen maybe 2 cringe inducing owner grooms. Of course there are always bad groomers, but I think that's a matter of just plain bad luck and a majority of groomers can give a nice, safe and decent haircut compared to a new owner groomer, with the exception of TilliesMom, who did an impressive hand scissor body cut. I think because we are so dedicated to our breed everyone does try to keep up on the grooming and carefully do it. Outside the forum however, is a totally different ballgame. Almost all owners who I've seen take scissors to their dog ruin the face and there's no way for me to fix it because I can't put the hair back on and it just has to grow out. But not without me giving a gentle suggestion to bring the dog in for a quick face tidy, only $6!

On a more serious note just last week one of my coworkers had to shave down a severely matted standard poodle. The owner, an older woman, had tried to cut the mats out with scissors (big no-no, you get written up at PetSmart for doing that) and sliced her dog twice on the thigh. Two thick one-inch scars remained after what I'm sure resulted in gushing blood and possible veterinary treatment. The owner didn't seem too concerned and asked for pom poms (which she of course did NOT get). So glad no one on the forum is like that!

bwhahahhahaa.... were you the one that said I 'couldn't' scissor cut Tillie?
lol, ya, what can I say, I like a challenge. drives my husband INSANE. He tells me I can't DO something? oh HECK no ... I'm gonna DO IT.
although I am hoping to get some affordable thinning shears before her next trim down (in the spring).

Try Heritage Klein. They are an excellent price and quality combo. I bought mine for $40, I think. Yes, I did say you "shouldn't" hand scissor her BC of the drop coat and most people wouldn't know not to do a "dipping" motion with the hand, which puts gouges into the coat. Still, you can't hand scissor a yorkie. I guess if there is enough body you can. But then again I hope you don't have a yorkie!

They did a wonderful job!
I do my own grooming on Cassie too! Wish I trusted someone else doing it, but I don't.
