  • Overcoming Dog Fear to Become a Dog Groomer

Yet Kayleigh’s love of dogs has beaten all her fears. Now, *seven years later, she has a shih tzu called Sid and has started a pooch pampering firm. Kayleigh, 22, told The Sunday People she still *vividly *recalls when the akita, called Chunk, *suddenly turned on her after she knelt to pat him...................

    I was attacked by an akita exactly the same way. A dog in my apartment complex that I had seen dozens of times. I knelt down and let him sniff the back of my hand and he just went for my throat. Thankfully we were outside and it was late fall/early winter so I had on a wool coat and scarf around my throat so he wasn't able to latch on.

    Good for her in overcoming her fears to do what she dreamed of as a career.

      Ditto, I have a bather that was attacked by a loose Akita some years ago as a teenager. But she still does big dogs but learned to be very careful about approaching them. She wasn't raised with dogs.
