When You Think You Can Be a Dog Groomer and You’re Wrong
Nevermind the fact that none of us has been to a barbershop or hair salon in eight weeks, our fur babies have gone unattended to for the same time and they need to be groomed.
This morning on the Rock and Fox Show, our Tuesday trivia question was about how dog owners think they have become experts at grooming their dogs. Funny thing is, they're not – myself included.
The question was three out of four people attempting this right now are failing terribly. The answer? Giving their dogs a haircut and/or grooming them. This is so true. I can't tell you how many bad doggie haircuts I've seen on Facebook and Instagram this past week.

I assured him I knew what I was doing. He seemed skeptical at first, but with the help of a few treats, I talked him into it. It went so wrong, so fast. I guess some things are better left to the professionals. (He hasn’t seen a mirror yet. I told him it looks great) #Quarantinelife
It's been about 10 weeks since my girl Jessie has been to the groomer for a cut and bath and we are all starting to take notice. On a normal six-week visit to the grooming salon, she gets a haircut, bath, blow dry, nails clipped, and her teeth and ears cleaned, too. While in quarantine at home, I can only "dry shampoo" her for so long before it is evident that she really needs a bath, badly. Pee-eww.
Without knowing when pet grooming businesses will open back up, I am considering my own DIY dog grooming over here this weekend. What do you think? Give me your thoughts and your tips and tricks in the Facebook comments under this story.
