I’m Arlene Adams, I own Waglands Dog Holiday
retreat and I am a professional groomer. Every day is different and it’s just dealing
with customers different expectations, the different dogs that come in, the different
conditions that the dogs are in, our main goal is sending home happy clean healthy dogs. Each dog is different depending on the breed You will have to have a look at the dog’s skin, and you’ll also have to have a look at the dog’s condition of the coat. That’s
the first step you need to do. You have to also have a look at the history of the dog, once you’ve cleared those basic things up then you choose the different products you’re
going to use, sometimes you’re brushing them beforehand, sometimes you’re brushing them in the bath. Basically you get the dogs clean and then we then groom them. So trimming nails, trimming the hair underneath their pads, cleaning ears out, any eyes that need
to be wiped all the dirt that builds up around dogs eyes any knots that need to be
removed and then the final task is actually making the look nice and pretty with scissors
and clippers. Dogs behaviours is really important, you need
to be able to pick up when the dog is stressed, you need to be able to pick up when the dog
is happy, if they’re a bit nervous, and then you need to be able to cope with those
different behaviours that the dogs are showing you. Love dogs, love working with happy dogs and sending them home looking gorgeous! You’re always learning, I’m learning something new every day.
