She is a brindle shiddy which includes grey they like no colour in the legs for showing but a lot have colour, on a shiddy cross like Honey she is going grey with age as she is much more Lhasa than shiddy and she is a self colour

HEY VAL! (or anyone else!)

I'm thinking of taking Dash to a groomers, I found one online quite local and they do everything I need for them to do.  He needs a bath and I can't manage it at the moment, and it would be nice for him to be trimmed up a bit and sweet smelling - it can be his Christmas present!

My question is, should I be looking for certain qualifications or have a look out for anything in particular?  I asked if I could visit the premesis before making a decision, since I've never had to take a dog to a groomers before I'd like to check it out first before booking him in, I would think people have a look around first before taking their dog in?  They have pics of the place, but I'd still like to have a look...

any suggestions appreciated! Thanks!

Karen

Cleanliness would be top of my list if I was looking at another groomers you can't help a bit of hair flying about but are the towels clean and folded is the floor clean is the table being wiped between dogs.
Qualifications should be on the wall the most common is a City and Guilds be very clear on what you want them to do to him and don't let anyone clip him he doesn't need it
The best people to ask are the clients

Thanks, Val! Oh no clipping for him, definitely not!!!  I will keep all that in mind, an extra point of view from a professional doesn't hurt, so thanks for replying!

 ;D hehe me again!!

Ok, milly is awful for getting dirty (as dogs do) but rather than her being white is looks a horrid smokey colour, dirty, rather than bathing her all the time to keep her coat white is there anything else i can do?? ive tried brushing her for ages, but it doesnt help, it gets the bits of sand/mud/snails out but doesnt make her white again????

i know one of you groomers will have a tip!  :D  ;)

best thing - keep the hair short so no cling ons in the first place - id wash her back end then trim the fur - i dont like cutting them off because if they are too close to her skin you might cut her then she really will hate you!!!  ::)

ok so what would you do with this???????;D  ;D   ;D  ;D

After EVERY sleep she wakes up like this as she spends about 20 mins rolling about to get comfy and then it takes me forever to come down again, is there anything i could use on her hair to keep it down joly while it grows??

This piccy was just taken now, when she woke up   ;D  ;D
