I don't know if this means he likes being brushed or not but I think it's best to do it when he's calm. What should I do to make my puppy adjust to being brushed daily? (He's a yorkie pom) I really appreciate it if you can help!</p> http://mypetsmart.com/community/message-boards/dogs/grooming/what-if-your-puppy-doesnt-like-being-brushed#comments Grooming Tue, 27 Jul 2010 15:21:35 +0000 puppylovr07 172651 at http://mypetsmart.com Should the dog groomer be tipped http://mypetsmart.com/community/message-boards/dogs/grooming/should-the-dog-groomer-be-tipped <p>Should the dog groomer be tipped?<br /> if yes then how much?</p> http://mypetsmart.com/community/message-boards/dogs/grooming/should-the-dog-groomer-be-tipped#comments Grooming Wed, 09 Jun 2010 00:26:13 +0000 junior.woof 172627 at http://mypetsmart.com My 1st Trip to PetSmart Grooming on Aero Drive http://mypetsmart.com/community/message-boards/dogs/grooming/my-1st-trip-to-petsmart-grooming-on-aero-drive <p>When I came in to drop my dog off, two employees were busy chatting (one was grooming a dog while the other was just standing there talking to him). The employee who came up to help me, Jackie, was friendly and I liked her. The entire time she was checking us in (my first time here), the two employees were busily chatting away. Then the male employee who was grooming the dog (who seemed dreadfully scared and was shaking like a leaf), suddenly shook the dog and yelled at the dog "knock it off!" I was shocked!</p> http://mypetsmart.com/community/message-boards/dogs/grooming/my-1st-trip-to-petsmart-grooming-on-aero-drive#comments Grooming Tue, 25 May 2010 22:25:32 +0000 TootsiesMommy 172614 at http://mypetsmart.com great way to wash a small dog http://mypetsmart.com/community/message-boards/dogs/grooming/great-way-to-wash-a-small-dog <p>Great new OutReach faucet from American Standard.

Maybe too much. But I keep seeing Lorenzo Borghese talking about Royal Treatment, which is supposedly "high end" pet products that are all-natural, made in Italy, made by hand, etc.</p> <p>I'm not sure if I'm fascinated or horrified. Is the stuff any good? Is it THAT good to pay the extra price for it? (It ain't cheap.) Has anyone used it? I don't want to be the first one to experiment!</p> <p>Thanks for your help.</p> http://mypetsmart.com/community/message-boards/dogs/grooming/royal-treatment#comments Grooming Tue, 21 Jul 2009 16:56:21 +0000 LittleMissSunshine 172313 at http://mypetsmart.com do whats best http://mypetsmart.com/community/message-boards/dogs/grooming/do-whats-best <p>Some pets hate getting groomed.

I currently own my first indoor cats (one short haired, the other medium)&amp; even after years of having outdoor cats &amp; working for a vet there are still a few things I just have no clue about. For instance, do they always shed like there's no tomorrow? Is there anything I can do to minimize/control this? They don't have issues with hairballs or anything, but I swear every time I pet them I see a cloud of hair go flying.</p> http://mypetsmart.com/community/message-boards/dogs/grooming/shedding#comments Grooming Thu, 16 Jul 2009 00:10:08 +0000 4LeggedCircus 172305 at http://mypetsmart.com
