This past weekend was crazy.
This week will be more of the same.
We close the shop for vacation next week, and the week before is always crazy.
So is the week after for that matter.
We always seem to pay big time for taking time off, but I need a vacation.
Last week I had a couple of Pomeranian owners e-mail me about grooming their Pomeranians.
I told them that I would be grooming my girl this past Saturday and would make video.
Of course when I wrote them back I forgot all about this past Sunday being my sons 18th Birthday.
Where has 18 years gone?
I still remember him scooting around the shop in his walker.
Yep, that was when the walkers still had wheels.
Boy, I feel old. :/
So anyway, Sunday was his day, dinner and a movie....after my usual running errands.
No working on the video Sunday.
Monday was putting a new floor down and new toilet in our guest bathroom.
Got a little work done on the video.
Finished the video and am waiting for it to upload as I type.
I used my Pom for the video.
She has allergy problems with her skin so she has been getting bathed weekly.
She missed a bath, so she looked pretty tacky for the video.
Because she has been bathed so often lately, she does not have very much undercoat right now, but I thought that she would still make a good video.
I don't normally recommend that owners bathe their dogs without brushing them, but the Pomeranian owners that contacted me had Poms just like mine...they HATE to be brushed.
They were both having a hard time finding a groomer who didn't want to shave their dogs.
I know that there are owners out there that do a great job in my Self-Serve bathing and HV drying their double coated dogs.
I have helped many of them by showing them what shampoo to use, how to use it, and how to HV the undercoat out of the dog.
Hopefully this video will help some Pomeranian owners who wish to groom their own dogs.
I would say that more than half of my Pomeranian customers hate being brushed.
I mean really hate being brushed!
Bite and scream hate being brushed.
By grooming them the way I show in the video, it has made their grooming much more pleasant, with minimal brushing.
Oh...much less screaming and biting too. :)
Here is the link to the video.
I will be getting around to answering comments tomorrow....I hope....I am really behind. :)
Happy Grooming, MFF
