What Dog Groomers Know

Before pet owners walk into a grooming salon, they have questions: why does Fido have to stay at the shop so long? How do I explain what I want to the groomer? Is there any way to stop a Labrador retriever from shedding? Why does the groomer put cologne on my pet after I told her not to? Are they going to sedate Fluffy? Where can I get home grooming equipment?

And what’s it really like to be a groomer, anyway?

Written by a former pet groomer, this book answers these questions and many more. It will help you understand the grooming process from brushing to baths; from safety to scissoring–leading to a better experience for both you and your pet, at home or at the salon.
