  1. Dog Grooming
    So, today I'm getting my aussie puppy and I wanna make sure I take care of his coat correctly in between times he's at the groomer. So basically I'm asking for your kit. What do you use to keep your aussies coat beautiful. From shampoo conditioner, leave ins, detanglers, combs, slickers, rakes...
  2. Dog Breeds
    Hi! I wasn't sure what section to put this in. I currently have an almost 3 year old male chocolate Labrador (neutered) and am looking to get a second dog. I was originally set on getting a German Shepherd because I've wanted one since I was a child and I want that intimidation factor when I...
  3. Training Journal
    I recently moved to a new area and took my dog to a groomer for the first time. On Friday right after the grooming I didn’t notice anything wrong but that night when I took him out to use the bathroom things started to get weird. He wouldn’t move once I let him outside he just set down and I had...
  4. Dog Training and Behavior
    Hi Everyone, I've been reading here for a few months now, trying to find some help with my pup. Some background on me- I've always had dogs. Since 2017, I've lost two Yorkies and a Maltese all three made it to 16yrs old and they were all male.. Never had any problems with those wonderful fur...
  5. Dog Training and Behavior
    We have had our 16 month old Bichon Frise X Maltese since she was 4 months old. Since getting her we have been using the same groomer. She has never liked the groomers but was always well behaved. In the summer we took her and the groomer called us to pick her up as she had been snapping at the...
  6. Dog Training and Behavior
    Hopefully I'm putting this post in the right place. My 11m old toy breed has had several professional groomings since late last year, but she's been squealing, crying & really carrying on (heartbreaking handing her over). Then today handing her she actually peed from fear- she's never done...
  7. Dog Grooming
    I have a 10 year old shepherd whippet mix (whippet sized) who is terrified of nail trims ever since the groomer got his quick, and he in turn backed away and fell off the grooming table and was nearly strangled by the leash they were using. I have been trimming them myself since then, but he has...
  8. Dog Grooming
    Forgive me for asking this question, I'm sure A LOT of people are gonna probably think how stupid I am for even asking this question I'm sure but...... Why is it bad to groom your dog yourself? I'm confused... What if you bought the most expensive dog clippers you could find, had the best...
  9. Dog Training and Behavior
    There are several factors to put into consideration if you're interested in breeding a dog, you need to know if the dog has been tested for brucellosis, if the parents of the dog are protected from disease, how often dogs go into heat etc.
  10. Dog Grooming
    Hello everyone, I can't find anything on the internet to help my situation so I'm here in hopes that someone can help. My dog is a very aggressive dog. He's usually very sweet but when he's afraid he becomes really hostile, which is why I have trouble grooming him. He's been very matted and...
  11. General Dog Discussion
    We are considering a miniature or moyen poodle as our second dog, and I would love to hear from people who have poodles, specifically I'd like to know about their energy level, and how much time it takes to groom your own (smaller) poodle. Also, how vocal is your poodle? We have a friendly...

    Hello! Brand new to the forum and and I already have so much to learn. Today I really just wanted to ask a few questions about bearded collies and their coat as well as some just general questions. My first Q is what is the correct Bearded collie coat. This seems so simple but I've seen a...
  13. Dog Grooming
    Hi! I'm new here and excited to chat with you guys about all things dogs! I've recently quit my full-time office job to pursue something I really care about -- working with dogs! I got a job working at a humane society, but I'm exploring other "dog jobs" to help supplement my income and give me...
  14. Dog Grooming
    I have been looking up how to clip dog nails from different sources, and I have come to the conclusion that either a 45° or 90° cut is ideal. I understand that. What I was wondering though is if there was an ideal way the clippers should be held, or does that even matter? Is it okay to cut dog...

  16. Dog Grooming
    Hi everyone! I own a beautiful chocolate Labrador named Bonnie and she's a pure blooded lab, but she's so different from the labs I usually see. She's super stocky, and has longer fur than normal. While she's not long haired, I certainly wouldn't call her short haired. She's always been...
  17. Dog Grooming
    Hello, I have a Husky/Australian Shepherd mix puppy and I've noticed that the fur on her back happens to be two to three times longer than everywhere else on her body. It lays down weirdly and has more of a heavy course feeling to it that's different from the rest of her fluffy body. It also...
