I am wondering if there is a such a thing as frugal dog grooming? I have a 3 year old Chihuahua, her name is Daisi Mae..... She is all of 6 pounds, but she is feisty. She does not let me clip her nails, she will chew my arm off and she means business. She will not wear cute clothes, or collars. So it is a good thing she is micro chipped. I have fought with her on grooming, especially her nails. I came to the conclusion that it is traumatic for both of us. I hate holding her down with a towel over her face so someone else can attempt the clippers, and hopefully not miss and hit her quicks because they just bleed and bleed, and she yelps and cries. I can no longer deal with the anxiety involved in her bathing and nail trims so she is going to the professional groomer. I figure it is less traumatic for both of us, Daisi gets all clean and pretty and her nails trimmed, and it is about peace of mind for me. The most wonderful part is going to pick her up from the groomer, she barks and gets all excited to see me. I have done nothing traumatic to her (laugh).... it was all the dog groomer. I will get to snuggle with a clean dog today. And.....for me it is well worth the money!!!
Have a Fabulous & Frugal Day!!!
