Thanks for all the good tips! The 3 latherings was a surprise to me. Two I can see but I wonder why 3. Did the groomer use a detangling rinse at the end? I brush out all tangles and remove mats before getting Quinn into the tub as with his particular coat, the water makes them worse. All coaties have different consistencies of hair and different amounts of undercoat, so what works with one might not work for another.

Please don't litter. Neuter your pets!

She might have used a detangler rinse.

Ky's coat is definitely one of those that mats really fast when she gets wet ... I guess that's why we did everything afterwards? honestly, I'm not a groomer, and this is the first time Ky's been to a professional!

My other dogs were MUCH easier than Kyleigh - short coat dogs are a breeze! There might be more fur, but burrs come out a lot faster!

No wonder she charged you so much! 3 shampoos is NOT necessary. The dirtiest dogs at my shop get shampooed twice, but for a normal dog that hasn't been rolling in something dead, sprayed by a skunk, or covered in motor oil, 3 shampoos is overkill.

She had rolled in dead stuff ... dead fish and a dead gopher (I mentioned that in my original post) ...

As I mentioned above your recent post, it might have only been two shampoos, and the third was a conditioning rinse.

It was still one of the cheapest prices I was quoted. I got as high as $125 at one "boutique." I can't bring her to a "common"groomers b/c Kyleigh doesn't have the bordatella vaccine, and a lot of places in Ottawa won't accept a dog in their place of business without that vaccine.
