First trip to the groomer tomorrow!

I'm pretty nervous about it. She's not getting a full cut though, just her paws trimmed, nails clipped, etc. How much can go wrong with that?

On Sugarbaby's first trip to the groomer that is what they were suppose to do, when I picked her up, they had shaved her face. She looked like a schnauzer. I had told the groomer I wanted a "sanitary" cut, and when I complained, she said shaving the face is part of the "sanitary" cut so be very specific. Now when I took her to the new groomer I said "Only cut hair that is touching her feet or within 1" of her private areas. Do not cut a single hair anywhere else on her head or body"

Be very specific on what to do and what not to do. Some groomers think they should all be cut like poodles, or maybe that's all they know how to do.Good luck! I'm sure it will be fine.

Luckily this is the same groomer that does my mother in law's havanese so hopefully they did well. Hubby is picking her up now!

btw- schnauzers aren't supposed to have their face shaved either. Head and neck but not nose or beard but many groomers do it- I have been so mad when they have cut the eyebrows off or the beard has been cut - that is why I learned to do it my self!


oh and yes good luck at the groomers

Whelp I spoke too soon

Apparently when my fiance dropped Eva off at the groomer, the groomer asked if she was to do a sanitary cut, I guess just confirming what we had talked about on the phone. And he told her, "No she needs a haircut." So she got completely shaved!

I can't really fault the groomer for that but poor Eva now looks like a schnauzer or something. I have no idea why he said that to the groomer, since we had talked about her getting a sanitary cut that morning

Once I find my memory card reader I'll put up some pics.
