Default 🐶Does pet grooming need regulations?

Interesting and eye opening article. I groom my dogs at home. How about you guys? Does anyone take their chi to the groomer? What has your experience been?

Great read!!!

I'm currently looking into going for training to be a groomer but I groom my two at home, we take them to the groomers for ear cleaning and nail clipping though they're fantastic. Considering maybe once a month though to put them in to get pampered for some reason they really enjoy it, no hair cutting though just nails ears teeth cleaned and a wash and blow-dry and some fluffing up!

You'd make a great groomer, as you care about animals. Sadly it seems there are many that don't😔

Bad groomers are something that angers me a lot, why get into that line of business if you don't love and respect animals? I considered going back to college and studying to be a vet but I couldn't deal with abused animals coming to me I know it would just upset me too much, so I've decided to get into grooming which is hilarious as I spent 4 years studying Art! Oh how things change lol.

This article has left me stunned... I can sadly believe how that Poodle died, but the cat people, to take the animal and get it cremated?! INSANITY!!

I groom at home. I enjoy the process and even when I had my Newfoundland, I did it all myself. But two of my Chi's are "wash and wear" and require little to no work and Jo, I bathe, dry (I own a metroforce blower), and trim myself (with thinning shears and electric clippers, I only trim paws and clean up pants). I dremel all the nails in the house (I have 3 cats and two rabbits as well).

Up until almost 2 years ago I was a breeder and exhibitor of French Angora rabbits and I was one of the top breeders in the US. I took a hiatus because I needed a break from how crazy busy everything got. I got into them because I'm an avid knitter and spinner (spinning wool into yarn) and I have a love of luxury fiber and yarn, Angora being very prized, I figured "Hey, let me raise some of my own!". Next thing I know I was sucked into the showing scene.

Anyway, that's explaining where my love of grooming my own animals came from. I'll attach a couple pictures... I DO think there should be safety regulations for groomers...

This was my Newfie Gryffin at the old farm house, LOTS to groom there!! Caught him with his eyes shut lol



And here were my pride and joy, which really shows my love of grooming!!







Sorry to veer off topic a bit... but I don't know that I would be able to trust bringing my guys to a groomer. There certainly should be some kind of safety certification for commercial groomers... I still cannot get over those nightmare stories in the article...

They're something alright... The length of wool on that top doe, was 7" from tip to skin... Took 8 months to grow that coat and you can see from the wool all around her that she was starting to blow it, she was shaved down right after that show and I took over a pound of wool off her. Her name was Lorelei, she was the best doe I had ever bred. Grand Champion and all that jazz. The buck below her, Promise, was her son. The only baby she ever had for me. Promise now lives in Vermont at my retirement home, a carefully screen woman who I send the best of my best to when they're done being shown and bred and she spoils them rotten. Lorelei went over Rainbow Bridge in late 2013. Can't wait to hold her again someday.

I didn't read the article yet...

but just wanted to say that I take Peyton ( my yorkie ) , to the groomers about once every 3 months or so.
in between that time, she is very good about letting me brush her. she loves to get her hair combed

the 3 chis are so easy to groom. they don't mind getting bathed at all but I do take them to the groomers to get there nails clipped cause I hate doing it myself.

with Peyton... I always take her to the same groomer. I wouldn't let just anyone groom her , so I always know what to expect. I think that is the best thing to not only go to the same grooming salon but also to make sure you get the same groomer all the time. they get to know you and your dog well , so it works out better that way
