I have never really taken my dogs to a groomer before because I have always given them baths, etc myself so someone please tell me who's right here. Charlie absolutely will not under any circumstances let me brush him, let alone trim him. I posted about this a while back and got some good suggestions but nothing has worked. So, finally giving up in frustration, I decided to take him to a groomer and see if they would have more luck with him than I. I told them the problem I have trying to groom him (wants to play, eat the brush, play bites, gets all hyper, tries to bite if you try to make him stay still) and they said "noooo problem". $50 later he comes home from the groomer EXACTLY the same way he arrived. They said they were just "unable to do anything with him". OK, fine, my fault that my dog can't behave himself, I get that. But I really feel like I was ripped off. They said they could handle him, I paid in advance, and now I still have the same problem I had to begin with, except now I'm broke.
