As an individual doing the show thing I am horrified at what I hear. I am new to it and to be honest I doubt very much if anyone will ever handle my showbabies. Beleive it or not it is so frightning to me I often ask myself do I really want to continue doing this
never never ever leave the water and food bowl in their cages with them thats for sure. some of those people are so cuthroat! at one show 20 dogs dropped dead because of poison in their water. even if you are going to be there with them at all times water them then take it right out when they are done drinking. my boss bred and showed chow chows for a long time and she seen some stuff boy.

theres a "technique" that some groomers use to "teach" a fiesty dog to stay on their table. let me say this first before i tell it to ya's. my boss DOES NOT use this so called technique and she tells all new hires if they ever used it to leave her shop right there and then.

if the dog is biting or won't stay still the groomer tightens the noose and pushes them off the table so they are hanging there. the dog freaks out then stops moving, then pees and poops itself then the groomer lets it up on the table and the dog don't move again after that cause it's frightenend and in shock. some groomers also use duct tape to hole the mouth shut on a biting dog.

we have muzzles at the shop i work in. if we have a biting dog, we muzzle it (well not my boss, that is her last resort lol she'll take nips to the hand and arm then when blood is drawn she gets her muzzle, she's a tough cookie and hates restraint ;)) we also use e-collars so the dog isn't muzzled but can't bite cause of the collar lol. (my one dog had to have the e-collar and a muzzle ha! and he still bit us all!) and in 90 precent of the cases we are laughing when it happens. my boss says that if you are a yeller or mean to the animals it's time you get out.
