Grooming a senior dog
Django just can't last the long grooming sessions like he use to and I love my groomer but she always wants Django's haircut to be perfect. I've told her, "You've got an hour. He just can't stand for much longer." When I put a time restriction on his grooming, she's rushing, he's groomed poorly (my fault of course). Trying to figure out the best way to handle this. Django has such a thick coat that it takes her an hour and a half to groom him. I've tried grooming him every 4 weeks instead of 5 but it's the same situation.
She's really great, has been with us for the last 11 years, but my poor dog just can't stand there for his long grooming session any more. Even if I schedule a feet, fanny and face in-between he's still grizzly by the 4-5 week period. I even looked into the mobile groomer who I have used in the past when my groomer was out of commission and she's fast and amazing, however, my dog should have a bordatello shot which I won't give him so, I'm kind of stuck with my great groomer. Any suggestions?
