  • Finally, A Doggie Who Loves Me...

    I groomed a 120 lb sweet-heart of a German Sheperd today. His name is Stelt, and he was in heaven. I've always been bummed that most of my doggie clients don't enjoy their experience, but this guy just loved it. After we were done, he kept trying to jump back in the trailer as I was talking to his mom. She was just cracking up. I told him he could be my wing-man. What a sweetie. To think I was nervous about grooming this 120 lb male monster.

      Isn't that a great feeling? I had my apprehensions about grooming Gilbert (after Gilbert Brown, you packer fans should know the name) a 120 pound Rottie in school.

      He was the best behaved, handed me his paws, knew the drill. What a good boy. I think about him often as I haven't seen him since but what a sweetie.

      So glad you got to experience the love.

        Don't you just love that..lol.. I have two standards, mom opens front door, they race to the bus. I have stairs to my grooming tables, they each go to their "table" and stand there waiting for kisses. It is a nice change from the dog that knows the sound of you vehicle, and hides in the backyard, undercouch, etc. shaking uncontrollably, like I'm some kind of monster.

          It is a wonderful feeling when dogs make us feel special. I'm sure Stelt's mom loved seeing how happy and relaxed he was too. One of my favorite clients is a Springer named Lucy. I've been grooming her for about 10 years, and she always makes me feel special, because she's so excited to see me.
          I've boarded her a number of times too when her parents were out of town so she thinks my house is her 2nd home. Her mom always jokes about her feelings being hurt, because Lucy runs into my house without even bothering to say goodbye to her mom. But, I know it gives her mom peace of mind knowing that Lucy is happy here.

            I love that too. We have several dogs that just run from mom or dad and push their way back...too cute!

                I have a Springer that doesn't seem to mind coming to my shop. He walks right in and up on the table. He does pretty good during the groom but he is ALWAYS happy when he is done and can get out of here! lol

                  I have steps to my tub but do an airedale that jumps right into the tub for me, lol. He's a handsome feller.

                  Pam, I'm glad you had a positive experience. Are you still thinking of selling your trailer?

                    Gotta love it.

                    I have a cocker whose owner tells me that as soon as he says my name the dog gets all excited. Drags him to the car and then to the shop. She is always so happy to see me and her tail goes a mile a minute through the whole grooming.
                    Personally, I think it's because she knows that when dad comes to get her, she is allowed to run over and pick out a new toy. So Jessica = new baby for Honey. lol.

                      The Petsomething I worked at had a JINORMOUS English Bulldog that came in every so often for a bath. His parents would walk through the door and promptly drop the leash (otherwise they'd be pulled into the grooming area). Newbies were always confused. He'd push right through the half door separating the grooming area from the client area, he'd march to the back and push open the full sized door and pick out his own cage. It was always a blast to see him do it. I loved that dog.

                        If I had a standard poodle, I would want it to look like your avatar! I would want a groomer..oh no not me..to know how to groom it and color it for me. I had two dif Springers in diff states would walk up to my table and put front paws up to get up..if table low..jumped up..Maybe it's a Springer thing..w.ould walk it everywhere.. I would like the attention...good walking billboard.curser messed up sentence. Poodle..I"d walk it all over to show off.

                          It is wonderful to have clients that are so happy to come and see me. It makes me feel vindicated for the ones who drag their paws...lol... Right now I am boarding a Shih-tzu who is very regular. I love Barney!!! He is such great advertisement. When his daddy brings him in he is straining at the leash to get to me. As soon as Todd takes him off leash he will run in the back and jump on "his" chair. I love it when there are other clients in the lobby to see his performance!

                            I have clients who when they hear my name start looking for me. Then there are the ones who shake like an aspen tree in the wind but 2 minutes in the van and I'm getting kisses LOL!! They just like to play mom & dad
