Today I had a long haired Chihuahua come in for her very first grooming.....she is 2 years old.
She was very shy and sweet when I took her from the owner, but I wasn't sure what to expect when I started grooming her.
Two years of her life gone by without ever seeing a groomer.
Was she going to freakout and become a little land shark?
She turned out to be a groomers dream to groom.
The water scared her a little at first, but she settled right down.
The HV dryer startled her a little at first, but she calmed down quickly and even let me dry her head with it. (on low speed)
She also stood like a statue for all of her trimming.
She was also an angel for her nails.
She did not move a muscle while I clipped and filed them.
They were so long, they were twisting her toes.
Her owner wanted her rear scissored short, because she had been peeing on herself and she did have a few small mats around her privates.
The owner also wanted her ears neatened but not taken too short because they are part of her personality.
I scissored all of her feathering tight and neat.
She was so shy.
Just look at that face.
I spent a little longer grooming her than I needed to just because she was such a joy to groom. :)
