    Wow Returning dog to front door becomes a threat

    My sister in law is also a mobile groomer. She was about ready to drop a client for her safety and the dogs. She grooms 2 large mixes about 100 pounds each. She cannot carry them back to the house and must walk them, and usually the owner is not home. But the idiot neighbor has 2 dogs usually on the loose. She said it is like they wait for her to take the dogs in or out of the house and come running. The owner has reported the neighbor and the dogs seem to get loose again and again. At this point she is telling the owner that she must be home when she grooms and advise the neighbor and stand guard. Sheesh, some people.

    I agree, owner must be home. Can't understand the mentality of some people.
    Old groomers never die, they just go at a slower clip.

    Groom on!!!

    In this case (not always though) I also think the owner needs to be home. I also think someone needs to slap the neighbor up side the head! One would think if the neighbor was reported a few times, there would be a fine involved for loose dogs that don't respect their boundary lines.
    Ain't always easy to stand up for what is right.

    I would as a groomer earning a living walk over to the neighbor and politely or not so politely explain he needs to restrain his dogs or a call to police is in order

    And this would be what I mean by slapping the neighbor up side the head.

    Maybe she also needs to report these people. If more than one person has the same complaint, it might be taken more seriously. Otherwise I'd be telling the client that I refuse to come to the property as I fear for my safety. Sorry-not sorry.

    ^^^^this^^^^ I wouldthink if they would have been reported repeatedly they would have been ticketed for "dog at large". Happened to my Mom once when her Shepherd/Lab mix got loose and roamed the neighborhood for an hour before we finally got her.

    Wow what a neighbor, I would wonder why the owner wouldn't call and report them. Maybe they are even more scary?
