Remember, it's not about you

Working with naughty dogs is my passion. When someone has a dog that is difficult to work with, I will try to correct their behavior over time and gain their trust. A Shih Tzu came to me that had never let its previous groomers clean out his eye corners.

"I've learned that time and patience can go a long way, but not every dog is going to look perfect and that's okay. The important thing is that the dog has a good grooming experience."
