And here we have a rather naughty ladybug puppy! She was an ear flapper, so her ears were a make-do and not as red as I’d have liked. Overall I was very pleased with her, and her mom was very excited! She’ll be attending the big Doggie Dash and Dawdle event on November 8th, which […]
This client first requested a tiger transformation for her Goldendoodle, with purple stripes. I quoted her $150, which is still pretty low, and she decided on a Pink Ponydoodle instead. This is my first big dog Makeover, and there were a few technical details I didnt consider… for example, once she’s on the table and […]
Today’s lesson: never critique a terrible haircut because you assume it was done by another groomer with similar “grooming style”. It may turn out to be a mommy do, and you may offend your client. Yeah, that’s what I did. I took one look at this face and was certain it was the handiwork of […]
Here we have the same star of our Retro-Lamb Upgrade entry, a Bichon named Puffball. Today she became a Jack o’ Lantern. I will post another update this Saturday, when I do another bath and fluff and apply the jack o’ lantern face to her sides. so happy to have such amazing clients!
Just a sweet and pretty Cocker that I think is lovely, despite her poorly pigmented nose!

This haircut was done by another salon, but the owner brought her to us after seeing the orange ‘Michael Jackson’ (single dyed front paw) on her Hot Yoga instructor’s Lhasa. This was NOT the sort of dog I usually approve for color. She […]
This is some sort of pet Bichon/Teddybear Head Makeover. I had a lot of uneven spots to fix and a frizzy chin mess to even out, but the results were quite cute for a start.
Using my Superzoo knowledge, half an hour of stripping, and a 0 clipper comb, I’ve not only maintained the harsh integrity of the terrier coat… I’ve also done one of the best Scottie patterns of my career. I’m bookmarking this so I can look back in 5 years and cringe at my mistakes, but for […]
Look, Schnauzers are one of THE MOST contravercial haircuts. I’ve seen Schnauzers in Westie, Cocker, and L shape patterns (picture the body like a cocker and a short dash shaved down the backs of the legs… shudder). I took a couple INCREDIBLE terrier seminars at Superzoo and here is the first Schnauzer I had a […]
Just some sweet Puppy’s 1st Groom photos…
