  • How long does it take you...

    1) to bathe and blow out an average sized Golden?
    A Shepherd?
    A Newfie?
    To trim the feathers on a Golden or Newfie also?

    2) Do you always use a conditioner on these types?

    3)Do you automatically trim the pads and between the toes of the Golden or Newfie types? or is a B&B just a B&B?

    I'm trying to average times on different breeds to help decide if hourly mobile is more appropriate for me or "per breed". Or even a combo.
    Thanks!

    i don't do newfies in the truck. goldens and shephards can vary wildy in times due to size and coat, hence my hourly rate. they can both range from 45 minutes to an hour and a half. on sheps it is strictly bath and brush, but goldens always get their feet neatened. all goldens get conditioned, most sheps do, but not if they have an excessively oily coat.

      To bathe and blow out(meaning all the way dry or just a fur blowout?)
      I'll just say how long it takes to get them mostly dry
      Golden 20-30 min guess or maybe these just feel this long? Also depends on how thick the coat is..and if they let me dry their behinds
      For a G shep it takes around the same time and they all just seem to hate every moment!
      Newfie- Takes me at least 30-40 minutes

      Now for conditioner.. I'll usually put on a spray conditioner after the grooming. Just because those big hairy dogs take forever to have it rinse out! Plus I really massage it into the coats because I like em' clean(both shampoo and conditioner whenever i use that)

      I'll do pads on all dogs that have lots of hair in them. Now the hair on top I'll leave alone unless the owner asks for it. Since some people would be very upset.

          to bathe and blow out an average sized Golden?- 25-45 minutes, it really depends on the coat. Some goldens have thin hair and some have THICK coats.
          A Shepherd? 30 minutes
          A Newfie? 45 -1 hour
          To trim the feathers on a Golden or Newfie also? 20 minutes

          2) Do you always use a conditioner on these types? Generally.

          3)Do you automatically trim the pads and between the toes of the Golden or Newfie types? or is a B&B just a B&B?- Yes on Goldens but only skim on Newfies as they have webbed feet.

            i would say hourish for goldens/shepards 2+ for a nufie/pryn. I have been know to grab a force dryer hose in each hand and blow out the majority of them with two at a time(can really cut the time down).
            As far as trimming I alway do the feet/pads to me that is part of a basic bath. I also trim the feathering just so it dosen't drag on the ground. Anything more is a neaten and more $$.
            I generally use conditoner especially if blowing coat.
