- Using tranquilizers.
It might be that the groomer is
afraid of dogs that are aggressive but it’s more likely
to be that the groomer is running a manufacturing
lineup and has no time to calm anxious dogs.
I Don’t recommend tranquilizers – no matter how
Mild – for smaller dogs.
is many groomers use a grooming noose (not as
awful as it seems!) Or collar to attach the dog
into the vanity.
If the groomer leaves the dog alone, it is easy
For a dog to attempt to free himself and end up
choking or damaging his throat.
- Taking shortcuts which violate breed standards.
To scissor instead of clip puppies. But if your
breed standard or design calls for a scissor cut,
you need to inform the groomer you need this.
If you do not speak up, they will most likely use a
clipper. And if you anticipate hand stripping,

Your groomer will use one, make sure s/he
watches the dog, utilizes a timer, avoids high heat
and has yet another fan at the front of the cage to
encourage proper airflow.
Additionally animal trappers near me shouldn’t use a hand-held hot
Drier on a puppy drying in a stainless steel cage.
There isn’t enough venting for the atmosphere
to flow correctly and the base of the stainless
cages get hot fast.
Have plastic bottoms or grates to keep off the pet
the hot floor of the cage. The dressing table room should
be airy and open when using heated dryers
to stop the space from overheating.
All of the fans in the U.S., however, are no substitute for
