October 22, 2014

I am always asked why it costs so much to have your pet groomed. There is a fantastic and funny list published on many grooming sites. Whoever came up with this was spot on.

  1. Your hairdresser doesn’t give you a bath
  2. Your hairdresser doesn’t give you a manicure and pedicure
  3. You don’t try to bite or scratch your hairdresser
  4. You don’t wiggle, spin or try to jump out of the hairdresser’s chair
  5. Your hairdresser only cuts the top of your head, not your whole body
  6. You don’t try to hump the hairdresser
  7. Your hairdresser doesn’t wipe boogies from your eyes
  8. Your hairdresser doesn’t pluck and clean your ears
  9. Your hairdresser doesn’t squeeze your anal glands
  10. You don’t poop or pee while you are getting your hair cut
  11. Your hairdresser does not remove fleas or ticks
  12. You don’t go 6 weeks (or more) without brushing or washing your hair
  13. Your hairdresser doesn’t brush your teeth
  14. You don’t try to bite the clippers. scissors, brush, nail clippers or dryer
  15. It doesn’t take 3 people to trim your nails
  16. Your hairdresser doesn’t have to de-matt your hair
  17. Your hairdresser would never wash your butt
  18. Your hairdresser doesn’t give you a “sanitary trim”
  19. Drying your hair doesn’t blow hair all around and cover everything
  20. You don’t howl or bark while having all this done!
