So, after the groomer shaved Cooper so that he was miserable(itching) - my husband & I decided that we would give it a try ourselves. Turns out, Cooper was awesome! We felt SO bad for our boy when we picked him up - I almost cried. The groomer said he was matted - which I dispute because I was meticulous when I brushed him, always making sure I could get to skin. I think, since it was her last before Christmas Eve, that she just wanted to get out early. Sorry, but that's my feeling. Anyway, when we rehomed Cooper, he came with all of the necessary grooming tools, so we were able to do it ourselves. Of course, since he hasn't grown out yet, we only had to bathe, and clip him (paws, ears, privates), but he was very patient with us;-) SUCCESS!!!! definitely learned!!
