Both our girls go to the groomer every month. They seem to enjoy it, our groomer is great and Kana grows so much fur between her pads it's creepy. Kana is a coatie as well and she trims her a little. We started using the grromer because we both worked, were in a new home and the mess was crazy after baths. Now we are just lazy I guess as my lovely bride is retired and has the time, I work and don't like doing it.
