Can anyone give me an idea how to find a gentle groomer. I have a Yorkie who has never been to a groomer and she is SUPER sensitive. I have decided it is just too much work to keep her hair long so I am going to have it cut and I want someone who will be gentle with her. I expect it will be traumatic enough as it is.
I haven't been here in a while but I always love the caring people who visit. Can anyone help me? I live in Los Angeles.
Ask to watch. Keep in mind, if this is the first grooming you baby with scream, cry and holler. She has been getting away with it when you groom her, but will not with a perfessional groomer. Just because she struggles, makes noise or whatever, doesn't mean she is being hurt in anyway. It means she isn't getting her way, and she is complaining about it. Trust me, I groom and watch my boss do it all the time. lol
Ask your vet for reccomendations. They are usually the best people to get a reference from. Good luck
Thanks everyone. Yes I will see if I can find a mobil groomer. She is a little trooper. The biggest reason I cannot bear to have her hair long is I am tired of hurting her. She has amazing thick long hair and it mattes if I look at her! She never cries but she certainly slinks away when I pull out the grooming tools.
