Well, the time finally came when I became sick of bonzai only looking groomed for 15 mins after her weekly bath.
This is Rico, a 6 month old cocker puppy. This is his 2nd groom and he’s extremely submissive and anxious. He tried to bite my coworker when she checked him in for me and she came in shaking her head and giving what she thought was a death sentence: “they want a cocker cut”. I’d […]

It occured to me that this post may have come across as arrogant, petty, and mean-spirited. So the original lesson of the difference between a Town and Country and Lamb trim has been removed entirely.

I have a goal in mind with my career as a pet stylist to invest in the education to take my skill OUT of the “decent pet groomer” arena. I don’t want to just be a “good groomer” who can make a 7 all over shavedown look cute on a shih tzu just because I […]
Red poodles are relatively rare, and adults with a deep, rich red coat are rarer still. Even the deepest red puppy will likely fade out to apricot or even cream by age three. So this pair of red minis i groom are a real treat. Featured is Chili (the other is named Beans), who is […]
Isn’t she sweet? Like all brussels in my area, she’s called chewie. This was her first time in a breed clip. She has shih tzu-like coat and was very matted but came out beautifully!
