Daisy&Lucky's Mom With three GSDs and no waterproof room in the house mine have gone to the groomers. Daisy and Lucky about every 4 months , Thunder and Chevy every three. The girls like water the dirtier the better. Lucky is a gentleman at the groomers and thunder is also very well behaved. Chevy is good except for her dislike of nail clipping.

You can search on here and find several threads mentioning its use. It just blows the loose hairs, dust, dirt, and water out of the coat really well and lots of dogs take well to it after proper introductions are made.

Eiros For how rarely he gets bathed (just a couple times a year), It's easier for us to get him groomed professionally

The HV dryer is the key.
You guys nearly have me convinced...

Ya that is a big part of why I want to take Abby to the groomer...I know the dryer can make a big difference. Plus all the other stuff, mess, back hurting.

And mycobraracr's Heidi isn't that bad. She's sensitive about her rear end and doesn't like her toenails clipped. If she starts giving me dirty looks, I'll put on a happy hat (muzzle) until I'm done with whatever she doesn't like. I don't often use muzzles, but with a bite-trained dog making snarky faces, I don't take chances! However, she dutifully eats every cookie I dish out, and last time she even gave me kisses.
I love Heidi and I haven't even met her yet!

But they have muzzled Titan before for getting to mouthy with the blow dryer.. I blame myself for that habit..

LaRen616 I take Sinister to the groomer 2-3 times a year. It costs $50 each time and I stay while she grooms him because we both have separation anxiety.

wyoung2153 I do about once a year. I have not found a place in the new town I live in.. tried Petsmart because we've used them in the past with our other dogs, and they always did awesome.... but not with Titan. They couldn't even blow dry him and put him in a drying kennel because they were afraid of him. When asked what he did.. they said he was an angel just wants to play with the blow dryer (like I told them from the beginning and they said, oh that's fine!)

I digress.. with the right groomer, it's awesome. He comes back so much more fluffy than when I do it. I just like that they do a really good job and brushing most of his loose hairs out..
