First Trim experiance
Lily is just a puppy but she was getting very shaggy so I got her a puppy trim for her face, feet, and girly area..nothing too serious so I wasn't worried or nervous until.......I picked her up just a little bit ago and the poor thing just looks scalped they cut around her eyes REALLY short and her eyebrows are very chopped and short (she kind of resembles and owl with the short hair around her eyes in a circle) and they didn't get that eye booger stuff out of her eyes so it is dried up and crusty. I didn't even want to look but when I flipped her over to see her girly bits they were scalped too!! My poor dog just got her first brazilian wax she is buzzed from her belly to her tail! They even snipped that hair on her ahmm you know (I had always heard they needed that where it was)
I am def. going to have to either find a different groomer (anyone from San Marcos, TX please PM with a good one) or learn to do it myself. I am just glad I didn't get them to do her whole body..hopefully her face hair will grow back quickly. I guess on the bright side her feet look ok..

Some groomers shave the belly as they think it is cleaner. I am so glad I do my own dogs. One good thing it will grow back.

I just started doing Ranger at home. Since I am growing out his coat after having a summer puppy cut, all I have to do is ears, feet and bum. It's really not that hard. You should try it!!! There are REALLY good grooming videos under the grooming section by Marci (Marcerella) that would give you an idea of where to start. Good luck!!

I know exactly what you mean about the first trim, I took Chloe' in on Tuesday for a "puppy cut" holy moly I couldn't believe their idea of a puppy cut. This groomer even owns a yorkie. I will wait a very long time before I do that again.
