GOOD CANINE HAIRDRESSING
If your dog belongs to one of the breeds that need to be clipped, combed or cut by professionals or you lack the time to do it yourself, it would be convenient to take it to a professional and qualified hairdresser. Some of them offer their services in luxurious canine beauty salons and some others may even go to your house, but the good ones are recognized by the following:
- They are always kind and patient with the dogs.
- They use sedatives only in exceptional cases and always under the veterinary supervision.
- They are capable to understand what you want and they know what to do and how to proceed with the concrete breed of your dog.
- They work only in clean and quiet places. If you hear too much barking or noisy rooms, the hairdressing session will be even more stressing.
