I work with a lot of rescue dogs, many of which have been badly treated and, at first, are terrified.  I find that I can usually gain their trust, by gently talking to them to try and make them feel less terrified and more at ease in a situation they may never have encountered before.  This gives me great satisfaction.
Educate my clients I always educate my clients on how to groom their dogs in between cuts. This makes it a better experience for the dog when they return next time. It also makes it easier for me and cheaper for my ‘client’s’ owner.
I do not use cage dryers, blasters, muzzles or crates. To me, the use of any of these practices is unnecessary if you want to gain the trust of a dog.
I inform my ‘client’s’ owner of exactly what goes on, be it good or bad, if a dog is difficult there is usually a reason and with the help of the owner we can usually rectify this situation.
Prior to my training to groom dogs, I worked with veterinary surgeons and have never forgotten what I was taught by them. If there is a medical problem with one of the dogs I groom, I can usually pick up on it.
I have been grooming dogs for over 20 years! and love, not only my job, but most of all my ‘clients’ – the dogs.  I want them to enjoy having their hair cut, having a shampoo and being dried.   I don't tie them up (unless they are old and have difficulty standing or are extremely difficult, which is very rare).
ONE TO ONE PERSONAL ATTENTION - NO CAGE DRYERS OR CRATES
