  • great pyernees shave down ugh

    today I did a shave down one a great peramise the poor thing was saverly matted all over and had fox tails every where it took me from 3:30 to 7:30 to just get him shaved. He's comming back in a few day to get his bath. His brother was in Yesterday he didnt have to get shaved down but he had more foxtails and was loaded with ticks. Its been a year scince their last groom. Somtimes I cant beleive people let their dogs get so bad and the dog are realy gentle just like big teddy bears. I know Im just going on and on just needed to vent

      Oh god I feel for you. I won't be taking any more GP's. There is a new mobile in town and I will refer them to him. Just too much work and NEVER enough $. Why do people have those types of dogs if they don't want to take care of them????????????????/
      If your dog is fat, you are not getting enough exercise!

          I know several people with Pyr's and they are stock dogs. They LIVE with their flock and so it's not unusual for these dogs to get in really rough shape. They are, in fact, doing their "job". I think these owners (of the stock dogs) are taking care of them. Most stock dogs rarely are allowed away from the duties! So taking them to be groomed is a sign that they do care, there are many that would just leave them in the pastures without ever being groomed.

                They have become very popular in my area in the past few years because of Coyote population increases. It is amazing to me how wonderful these dogs can be after being so "unsocialized". Truly a gentle giant!! I don't complain (much...lol) about their bad conditions when they come in. I am just glad they do get to come in for a grooming even if it is very infrequent. BTW, I have heard that GP owners cannot allow their pet dogs to get near the GP's flock because the GP will kill him as quickly as he would kill any predator, even if they are buddies outside of the GP's work area. Has anyone else heard this??
