  • This made it worth it!

    I am sure most of you have read my complaints of the Dutch here (at least in my city) not showing their appreciation this time of year with tips, cards or gifts. Up to today I have received ONE 2 euro tip ($2.85 US) and 2 Christmas cards.

    While working on my last dog, a customer comes to the door. She lives close by and her daughter plays with my daughter. She just bought a Shar-pei pup and it needs a bath. I swore I was not going to take any last minutes appointments (You give a customer an inch and they take a mile) but I could not resist the thought of a cute wrinkly shar-pei pup.
    Just being able to work and play with that pup made it all worth while and made me remember why I am a groomer. Sure, hearing some appreciation once in awhile is a nice thing - but I groom because I LOVE dogs and I wouldn't want to be doing anything else. So to me it doesn't matter if I don't get any gifts at Christmas... the kisses that Spike the Shar-pei puppy gave me was all the gifts I needed this Christmas.

    But by the way - the owner tipped me 5 euros ($7,14 US)

        I agree. Puppies are like a drug that makes you feel better on a bad day. Love that face!

            That is really adorable! Nice thoughts too.

            The only puppies I've had over the past week were incredibly bratty and matted yorkie puppies. They were older puppies though, never groomed or brushed... Just difficult and stressful. I'd take this guy over them any day!

                How can you NOT love that jello face!

                I had 7--6 week old husky puppies yesterday: 6 girls, 1 boy and trying to get a picture of them all was challenging to say the least but it was a nice way to end the day. I've had quite a few puppies this last week and am glad the week's over with!

                    Puppies are the best pick me up!
                    I forgot, I was going to suggest, why not next year (if you don't already) send out some Christmas postcards? I do that for my clients (which I admit is much easier when you have a mobile groomers number of clientele vs salons LOL) and I was amazed at how many people not only mentioned the card but then gave me a gift. These were clients I never expected gifts from. the one really shocked me by giving me a bottle of bath and body works lavender bath gel. I actually didn't think she thought of me all that much. But she did mention getting my card, so it made me wonder if that did it LOL. Worth a try!

                      I do this. I started out with sending a card to every single customer but now that is just too many so I just choose 100 of my regulars. PLUS all customers that are groomed in December get a Christmassy bandanna and a Christmas gift bag (filled with some dog treats) with an extra "Seasons Greetings" message on it.
                      This year I will be getting a bonus - my prices are going up for a first in 4 years.
