  • There's a dog under all that!


    So I just thought id share my first severely matted shave down. I forgot to take before and after pics. But he was one happy little guy after that rug was taken off. It literally looked like a rug, lol.

    Ugh! Looks like a chicken coming out of it's shell. You're sure getting some neglected pets. Makes you feel good to help them out when they're in such dire shape. These dogs most always know you're helping them and behave accordingly.
    Old groomers never die, they just go at a slower clip.

    Groom on!!!

        I agree. My friend had her neighbor bring in their super matted dog... more like "convinced" her to bring the dog in... the woman didnt take her dog to the vet often because of her being nippy and sometimes very nasty towards the groomers. Well, i was handed a dog similar to that one and i now have the pelt hanging up in my room for everyone to see. The dog wasnt nasty at all. She probably knew that i was going to help her and that shed feel so much better afterwards

            I used to groom dogs like that, when I worked at PetSomething. I must admit, it was rewarding, peeling all that shell of pelt off, making doggie feel like puppy again. Now, since I am fully booked for three weeks, people with dogs like that can't wait that long! I would love to help those dogs but for some reason their owners just can't wait three more weeks, after neglecting the dog for 6-8 months!

              Well I must admit I've hung on to these pics for quite some time. This was weeks ago, but the nail embedded dog was just a few days ago. I just never posted it until now. I vow to become more active and learn from all you guys!

              But yes, these two were very calm and I think they knew I was trying to help them.

                Thanks Dolly! I told them they should bring him back in 6 to 8 weeks and he said he would. Hopefully... lol.

                  I didn't want to get rid of the pelt from this dog either! I can't hang it because I work for a lesser known PetSomething, and its still a corp place. But I seriously got sad when I had to throw it out, lol.

                    Yes, he was so happy! I felt amazing for helping him! The owner said they were away for a month, and their son had him. Can a dog get that matted in a month? That has to be some serious neglect. He was mortified, and said it will never happen again. I dunno if I believe him but I can hope he was telling the truth, lol.

                      It's funny that you mentioned that. When I worked at corp. I saved a pelt like that and put it on one of the tables, and it stayed there for a few days. The manager would come in running, yelling "Who left the dog on the table unattended?" and then see it's just a pelt. A few people would walk in and ask what kind of dog was that. So then we would show the thickness of the pelt and explain why it happens and why it is bad. So it was educational. Corp. should have let you have it to show to customers with matted dogs!
