I would like Apollo to get used to being groomed and handled by someone other than me. I want to take him to get a bath, nails trimmed, the works. My question is: Is it dangerous to take him where other dogs have been groomed? I mean like for catching diseases, that sort of thing since he is a puppy?</BLOCKQUOTE>

When the D-litter was small and I kept 3 I took them to a groomer and she bathed them all for me.You take a chance everyday with your dogs.You can not live in a glass house.You could step on something and bring it home.


You just never know whats out there.

In the groomers package deal not only do they bathe them, they trim their nails, put a bandanna on them, cologne,and paint their nails. Why would you paint a dogs nails?</BLOCKQUOTE>

My one rescue Tiny had a lifetime membership to a groomers here in NY. He was being boarded at a place that did that type of thing and they said he could come back any time FOR FREE ! I took both dogs up there and they got baths, nails trimmed, bandanas, etc and I only paid for my female every time. It is a shame Tiny didn't live long enough to get a LOT of those free baths
.





Most places are safe but you don't want to get them groomed too often. Rottweilers stink less than any other dog and you don't want to dry out their skin with too many baths but it is a nice treat every now and then.

Moose runs off every time I get the hose out, even though most of the time it's just to spray out her kennel. I truely think she is scared to death of water. It does take some coaxing, and works better with 2 people (she's over 125 lbs., don't know if that's big for a female or not), but she eventually gets a bath.....might be several hours later, but it does happen.

All over ours get a shower in the bathroom.They all know to jump in the shower.They get a great massage while there.Some don't like getting wet,but once you start rubbing with that rubber horse brush all is forgotten and they injoy it.

Isn't it great how horse grooming 'tools' work just as well with dog's... and they are usually less expensive!?!?


....and isn't it curious that a "baby gate" costs less than a "pet gate", and is usually the same thing, only that petmoniker attached to it mysteriously makes it cost more?
