Dog Grooming is really more than just a hair cut. We have to be able to read a dogs body language, know a dogs sounds, see the signs that one could easily miss. A medium sized average coated dog will spend roughly an hour and a half on the table, during this time his safety and the groomers safety is paramount. A groomer will be using many skills whilst attending to your dog, not simply talking about where they are off to on holiday that year. Remember, dogs have teeth that are designed to go through bone and so as I said, there is a little more to grooming than hairdressing. Thats not to take away any skill for those amazing hairdressers. I definitely couldn’t do it.
