  • The show they put on for mom and dad.....TOO funny.

    Do you know the show I'm talking about?? The shaking and hiding behind mom or dad's legs.........the "Oh mommy(daddy) it's SO bad at the gwoomers) show??
    This one tops the cake........
    so I do my hairdresser's dog, and when time had allowed it in the past, I would go pick him up. His name is Ziggy, he's quited a tempermental little shih tzu, but from the first time I groomed him, he LOVES ME. He once sat on my lap while I got my hair done.....too funny. Anyhow, when I go get him, he's SO excited, and when I get here, he walks in the place like HE OWNS IT. So the last few times, his dad has brought him, OMG the show is UNreal. Ziggy shivers and he's Unsure.....oh it KILLS me just because I KNOW he loves to come here, but when dad is around it's a whole different story..........aren't they so funny??

    Dixie has been coming every 5 weeks for 4 years and she still whines and shakes the whole time she is with me. She can't wait to get out the door when her owner comes to pick her up. If we visit for a couple of minutes she actually gets kind of rude cuz she wants outta here!! We laugh every time!

      Does Ziggy's dad seem to have a different attitude than his mom? He may not show it outwardly, but maybe "daddy" is afraid of leaving his precious baby at the "scary gwoomers" and Ziggy picks up on it! LOL

          I've got a couple that do that too. Fine with mom, shaking with dad (or vice versa)

                I tell a lot of people to look through the window after they leave so they can see how their pup REALLY acts!!! lol Most of them can't believe how quickly they change from that shivering, whining, abused acting pup, into Eddie from Frasier..lol I also tell them their dog will walk right back w/me as soon as they leave so I don't have to drag or carry them in the back. Sure enough it NEVER fails as soon as the door closes poochie will turn around and trot into the back room w/out any further encouagement. BTW have you ever peeked into the window of the daycare or sitters after you have left your young kids? You will often see the same performance!! lol

                  I love the ones who put the brakes on & refuse to come into the back until mom or dad leaves. In our front end area, there is a big window - so we ask mom or dad to leave & watch from the window - their dog will come right along as soon as they're gone. It amazes them what traitors their dogs are!

                    Guess what I did. I took my camera out and video taped the dog. Then at the end of the groom I took the dog back in and showed the owner the video. It's great, it shows the dog acting like Im some evil monster, dad goes back in the house, shows dog watching him, then when dads out of site, he stops bouncing and shaking, looks at me jumps up gives me a kiss, we hug and he stands statue still during the whole groom, you lift a leg it stays where it is until you put it down. It's so funny, I showed the owner and he was in shock. Bet the dog got extra treats that day!

                        As funny as it seems, and as much as we think of it as putting on an act, it's really not. Mom or Dad is their comfort zone, their security. They know from experience that Mom or Dad is leaving, and they are staying. They aren't really afraid, they just don't want to be seperated from that security.

                        This is true seperation anxiety. They're anxious because the person they feel secure with is being seperated from them. Once Mom or Dad leaves, their anxiety is actually relieved. It's not being there without Mom or Dad that's causing the anxiety, it's anticipating the actual act of seperation.

                        It works the same way with our two legged kids. They're anxious about you leaving, but once you're gone, they're fine. It's just seperation anxiety.

                          And parents actually worry, why is he acting this way? So, we laugh it off: When I see a dog doing the "show", I smile, pat his head and say "who is spreading that awful rumor, we really don't have a sausage factory". The parents always laugh and leave.

                            lol Gracy, I too pet the dog and say "Don't worry, I haven't drowned anyone yet"........the owners get a big chucklet. My owners realize too, that it's usually JUST in their presence that the dog will shake and carry on. Sometimes these same dogs won't leave untill they come say good bye to me.......it's cute really.

                              We have that all the time. The dog starts shaking. The people baby talk, hug them, come back in after they just went out the door. When the owners are gone they act all excited to see us but once they come back they start shaking again and the owners feel so bad!!
