NO LOL they are called doggies washs some are next to car washes.

And Petco has a self service one in NY that i know of..

Normally they charge more for cutting .

So you do NOT want a GROOM price

You want a BATH price .. You can ask for a bather vs a groomer.

Some groomers get scizzor or stripper happy.

Bathers brush your dog out , clean ears, trim nails , bath dog,
dry dog, and trim anal area for trimmer as well as feet.

Also bath and brush is $10 cheaper on your breed than a GROOM.

As long as the dog is NOT matted they should NOT charge you extra.

Unless you want a special shampoo or conditioner.

Hope this helps.

Get out of town!!

Well, we must be in the dark ages here.

I feel taken advantage of!! She did charge me $10 more this time!! Should I be mad at her or my own stupidity for not specifying - but I did say "the usual". I'm thinking I just shouldn't go back to her but where to go, where to go??

Are you a groomer? Thank you for all the info. I have learned so much on here thanks to people like you who share their knowledge.

Oh yes, Rabbits, that is what I use - a "pin" brush, not a wire brush. But I have never brushed that way. Thanks - I'll try that.

Me neither, Rabbits, I am crushed. I made up my mind - I am not going back to her. I will begin searching for a new groomer tom.! Hopefully, he has fast growing hair like me. I don't think it is noticable except to me, it just feels different, shorter or thinner or something. And I want so much for it to grow REEAAAALLLLLLYYYYY long!!

you will not see the big collie coat until he is a year or so.
but yeah, the line brushing makes a world of diffrence.

and did you know that if you brush his hair dry that you are breaking it??
thats why you should always mist it with water first
