Teeth!

We all want our dogs coat maintained by regular grooming. But what about our dogs teeth? Just cause we don’t see them, doesn’t mean they don’t need regular “grooming”. Dogs have 42 teeth that need to last it’s lifetime. And they don’t brush daily like us humans! They...

Tear Staining

Nervous dog sleeping being groomed Meet Archie. He is a rescue. He was seeing a groomer regularly and bonded with them. So when that groomer left the shop, Archie had to start the process of trusting another person again. He has been to me a few times now. Initially...

All about me!

I made the papers again!

I made the national newspaper this time!  Thankfully not for anything bad!! I gave The Scotsman some tips on grooming your dog during isolation!  Its so weird cause when I lived in Edinburgh, The Scotsman was my daily paper.  I remember looking at the job section...

Community Spirit – Grangemouth during Corona

Nails

Dog parents have a fear of cutting their dogs nails.  Majority of dogs don't like it either.  So dog parents don't like doing it, dogs don't like it = dogs nails don't get cut! Dogs are generally quite sensitive about their feet....

Isolation Grooming Fun!

I was thinking how many of you will be feeling right now cause your dogs coat is longer!  We are so used to our dogs being regularly groomed and, like many things, we now realise there are many things we take that for granted.  I have been getting a lot of questions...

What a strange world we are living in eh!  All the technology, money, medicine, science and still, the world has come to a standstill.  A virus has brought the world to its knees! I do find it hard sometimes to take it in.  It feels like a movie - anyone else relate?...
