Little Sam knew that her dog Ferocious, was the cutest dog in the world. Although, his name belied that fact. As the most charming Irish water spaniel on the planet, Ferocious was well deserving of styling befitting of his high level of adorable-ness. When he entered any room, Ferocious captured the hearts of the most stoic, dog fearing individuals. That’s exactly what little Sam was counting on when she introduced him to her class during show and tell. Sam was a student at Borman Elementary School. This moment came around once a year. Not to be outdone by Tommy’s python, little Sam knew she would score brownie points with everyone once they caught a glimpse of Ferocious.
Big Sam knew how much show and tell meant to his daughter. While she was at school, he brought Ferocious to Pet Groomers Denton for shampoo and styling. The last styling he received was 30 days ago, which meant that he was right on time. Dogs have very sensitive skin. Their thick coats are designed to protect the dermis from the sun, bruising and scratches. Our groomers politely remind pet owners that canines and felines don’t require daily bathing like humans. Because it had been one month since we had last seen Ferocious, he received the full grooming service plus styling.
Pet Blow Outs
The Irish water spaniel is defined by their gorgeous curly hair – tightly coiled, thick and voluminous. This was a special occasion. Big Sam knew how much little Sam wanted to impress her classmates. He let us get creative and blow out Ferocious’ beautiful, natural curls. We blew his head and ears straight, but left the body and feet curly. A look that would have little Sam’s classmate oohing and aahing for weeks. If you thought blow outs were just for ladies – think again. After shampoo, condition and massage, your pet can experience a blow out too. The look lasts until they get wet.
The Process Part 1
Read on for a behind the scenes description of Ferocious’ transformation. Styling is completed in 13 caring steps. We use frequent praise and constant touch to relax and sooth pets. Groomers give healthy treats as positive reinforcement. Tangles are inevitable with this breed. We applied a hypoallergenic detangling conditioner to remove knots and matting. The groomer followed with a pre-bath trim and placating brush. Before we moved on to styling, Ferocious received a full body massage from nose to tail. Our styling services are so enticing that pet owners are envious.
The Process Part 2
Pet Groomers Denton is intentional about using different shampoos for dogs and cats. They are a separate species. Because they are both domesticated pets does not mean that they can use the same shampoo and conditioner. Like humans, dogs and cats have different pH balances. Keep this in mind the next time you attempt to cut corners using your personal shampoo on your pet. After a gentle towel dry, we apply a happy hoodie to your pet’s head to drown out some of the sound. The eye area is gently cleaned to remove tear stains. Nails and teeth are cleaned swiftly and carefully. Lastly, a barrette or adorning collar is added as icing on the cake. That day Ferocious was unstoppable – true to his name.
