It's A Dog's Life
Over the past 25 years, we have trained 5 puppies with Terry's help! If you are willing to listen to her and put in the work with your dog, she will help you train your pet so you never have to worry about his safety when you have him out with you. All of dogs (we currently have 2 who have been through training and a puppy who will be going very soon) walk off leash, come on command, lay down from a distance. They are not tied up or fenced in our yard, and I live on a main road. I know I can take them anywhere with me and they will listen to me. They stay off of my furniture and don't jump on guests. It is A LOT of work but it is worth it. People compliment us on our dogs behavior all the time (one even did commercials as she was so well trained) They would not be like this if it were not for Terry's guidance and knowledge of dog behavior! She will train you so you can train your dog! We have recommended her to many, many people all with the same results! Well trained pets!
Tips & Advices
Some pet groomers have viewing areas where owners can sit and watch their pets being treated. Most prevent owners from being in the same room as the pet, however, as the owner's presence might cause the pet to become too excited.
Pets that cannot interact with strangers do not make good professional grooming candidates. Sometimes medication can help, but some groomers don't take animals that have been sedated. If a pet becomes too unruly, a groomer may end the session entirely.
It's best to fully vaccinate pets before bringing them to their first grooming appointment. Dogs should receive the DA2PPC vaccine, which stands for canine distemper, canine andenovirus type 2, canine parvovirus, and parainfluenza. It's also a good idea to vaccinate dogs against Bordedatella (aka “kennel cough”). In fact, New York City requires dogs receive both DAPP and Bordetella shots. Cats, meanwhile, should get the FVRCP vaccine: feline viral rhinotracheitis, calicivirus infection, and panleukopenia. In addition, all pets should be up to date on their rabies shots. Owners should wait at least 24 hours after getting their pet vaccinated before bringing it to the groomers.
Technically, there is no such thing as a pet that is too old for a professional groomer. In fact, older pets with joint or mobility issues often can't groom themselves and need someone else to clean them. However, pets that are blind, deaf, or have serious medical issues might not do well at a groomer, especially if the person is inexperienced. Owners should feel free to ask potential groomers about their understanding of elderly pet issues. Often, older pets will exhibit puppy-like behavior and squirm or yelp during grooming. Alternatively, they might not be able to stand for long periods of time. As such, grooming an older pet usually takes more time than grooming a young one.
Puppies and kittens should be at least 10 weeks old before their first professional grooming session. They should be used to being gently handled by strangers and comfortable being separated from their owners for a few hours at a time.
