I Make Housecalls

Grooming cats is scary. Many many groomers just won’t do them. Their skin is so loose that it can squeeze through the tiniest clipper blade. Nicking a bit of skin is too common. Also they are not so good with Stay and Put Your Paw Down etc. Sometimes they will bite and the bite can cause serious infections much more than a dog’s bite. None the less I did get some serious tangles off of a nice kitty the other day and though stressful I feel good to help kitty out.  A cat’s skin is so loose and can get in between the tiniest clipper blade to nick, so that is an added stressor.  Much rather do a Poodle or other pooch.

I love styling poodles. I groomed a little apricot guy yesterday and have to say if I didn’t need money, I’d groom him anyway for free. Such a pleasure to create an elegant topknot a round ball on the tail and have a short but very plush lamb trim on him. After grooming he lays down by me on the couch, we have had a lovely time.

Share nights with pets

Monday, March 20th, 2006

Info in todays newpaper discussing relationships stated 28 percent of L.A. dwellers shared their beds with their pets. Now if that isn’t a reason for regular grooming what is?  Would you want a dirty shedding pooch in your bed.  How long do you go between hair washing your own hair? The bed sharing pets would be good candidates for a full time maintenance program Ithink.

Dog grooming in the dog’s home

Monday, March 13th, 2006

It a pleasure to be doing pooches in the relaxed comfort of their very own home. Amazing how the dog will behave even with the owner all around. Why? Because the owner is around their home anyway, and they have not left the dog, they are at home as per usual.
