Thoughts from a Dog Groomer in Colchester CT

Sugar7I was inspired about 8 years ago to become a dog groomer. I had just got my first poodle and was dropping her off at the groomer for the first time. Having no idea what to expect, I walked in and expected to cheerfully be greeted by a friendly person fawning over my baby.  Instead it was quite the opposite experience. To my dismay an elderly man sat at a desk and asked me what I wanted. I explained I was dropping off my dog FIFI for her first appointment,  to which he replied in a rather grouchy manner “I know.” I guess he was asking what I wanted done for her haircut…  He whisked her into a back room and 8 hours later they told me she was ready to collect. Needless to say she came back completely naked. At first glance I didn’t even recognize her. It was an all around bad experience. It also cost me $65 dollars… I remember thinking how are they in business? As I continued my search for a better groomer I found myself  having the same experience. At one point a groomer called me to tell me Fifi had an infection that had opened up. I was shocked!  I wouldn’t have noticed an infection prior, now I know it was a grooming injury.  After all these terrible experiences I started to groom my own dogs. Over time that skill was developed and was enhanced. I always remembered what I had searched for in a dog groomer, and I applied this criteria to my own business.
