Max had his first visit to the dog groomers today. I was really nervous about it as I had to leave him there for an hour and a half. He looked so confused as I left, but it turns out that he is mega vain as he loved it. He had the works, shampoo, conditioner, nails trimmed, fur on feet cut, teeth cleaned and ears cleaned. When I went to pick him up he was bouncy as ever and shining. When we got home he went for a wee and a poo straight away before falling asleep for 2 hours... Well it is tiring work looking so cute :wink:

Anyone else sent their puppies/ labs to the groomers yet?

I have never taken Corrie to the groomer, I bath him myself at home in the bath using the shower head and he loves it. However, when we have come back from a walk and he is really muddy I get the hosepipe out and he doesn't like that and runs away so I have to hold him by his collar. Sometimes if its really cold I fill up the washing up bowl with warm water and sponge him down, he doens't mind that.

I haven't sent my Paddy yet.
I bathed him soon after we got him after he rolled in something unspeakable . He was so good and loved the shower over him :D
He had his nails clipped at the vets and I sponge him down when I need to so I will probably just carry on doing it myself.
I do remember my parents dog going a couple of times a year(English springer ) and he loved it!!

We bathed Max just after we got him and had intended to carry on as it was such great fun, but we are having a new central heating system fitted and are living without hot water. Max was rolling in stuff the other day and although we tried to rinse him off as best we could but he still smelt, then we heard about a local lady who only charges £8 for the full pamper... i just thought it was a bargain too hard to resist :razz:

Certainly sounds a bargain!! And definately no fun with a pongy dog and no hot water!!

Glad Max enjoyed his pampering :D

I think I am still hesitant to let him go anywherebecause I worry he thinks he is being passed onto someone else , he has had three owners in his life (not yet 15 months) and he is still a little nervous if we take him anywhere (vets etc) and cowers between my legs.

Good luck with the cental heating !!

Blimey! .. such pampered pooches! :wink:

Am I in the minority on here (just as I am at home!) in that I actually enjoy my dog smelling like a dog!? ... I just adore that doggy aroma! :D

You're not alone - I love doggy smell au naturel :D - except when they've rolled in something unpleasant, then they go in the garden for a hosedown :)
