First time at the groomers, OMG!


Ohh I just needed to post this,
We got our dog a few months ago he was in real bad shape, matted to major extremes all down his legs and over his belly, we managed to sort this by shaving his back legs but he was still a reaaally fluffy dog so with it coming really warm and him getting too hot on walks we decided to get him groomed today.

The difference is so funny, they shaved him completely (even his big bushy tail) and he really doesn't look like the same dog! So much so that my kitty doesn't recognise him and is completely terrified of him. He hasn't moved from upstairs since we brought buddy back & hisses and flips when we bring him downstairs -.-

Anyway ill share before and after pics!

Pointless post but I just can't believe my eyes

You guys need mobile groomers! Course, I may be biased.

Did you have him shaved because of shedding? If so, do a close-open-close on the follicles or have your groomer do it. A light, quick conditioner. Let it sit for 2 min. Rinse. 5 minutes with shampoo sitting. Rinse. 5 minutes with a heavy, less diluted conditioner then rinse. This method of bathing actually forces dead hair out of the follicles and is really healthy for the skin.

It wasn't for shedding, he was getting too hot plus he looked completely silly after we got him because we had to shave his back legs & tummy to remove all of his matts. He doesn't really shed til he gets really fluffy and even then he just needs a good brush.. My cat on the other hand!!!
