Cost of grooming - a little humor!!

Cassie just returned from the groomers and I did my usual whinning about how it cost more to groom her than my hair cuts (same complaint about the cost of her combs, brushes etc) so someone sent me a very funny list that has circulated on the internet about why it costs more to groom a dog than getting a hair cut for yourself. I thought others might enjoy if you haven't already seen somewhere else:

Why it costs more to groom your dog than your own haircut:

*Your hairdresser doesn't wash and clean your rear end.
*You don't go for 8 weeks without washing or brushing your hair.
*Your hairdresser doesn't have to give you a sanitary trim.
* Your hairdresser doesn't have to clean your ears.
*Your hairdresser doesn't have to clean boogies from your eyes.
*You sit still for your hairdresser.
*Your haircut doesn't include a manicure or pedicure.
*Your hairdresser only washes and cuts the hair on your head.
*You don't bite or scratch your hairdresser
*The likelihood of you pooping or peeing while your hair is being cut is extremely slim.

That should be framed in every groomer's salon!

Thanks for this! I am taking Tucker for his first grooming on Friday and I was surprised at the cost.

Willow's first groomer started out at $40 then increased to $45. After she retired, I found a new groomer. She charged $40 but I told her I would pay what I was previously paying which was $45. I haven't tipped so I feel that the extra would amount to a tip. I actually like the new groomer better than the original. Willow is in a puppy cut.

How often do you get Willow clipped to stay in puppy cut.

I'm going to print a nice copy out and frame it as a gift to my groomers, great idea! I'd truly be lost without them, they have always been so wonderful with all of my babies.

Cassie's grooming is about twice what Williow's cost is, and she gets groomed about every 8 weeks! I think I pay a little extra to have the more expensive grinding tool for nails, rather than clipped, but it is still around 80!! My own cut, every six weeks is $45...williow and I are paying the same but Willow gets more services!
