Groomer Has It: Would You Agree to this Challenge?

Even if you didn't catch the latest episode of Groomer Has It, I've still got a question for you. The remaining contestants had an interesting challenge to find their own cover models at the Long Beach Dog Park . . . that meant convincing the owner to entrust a beloved pooch in their experienced grooming hands.

It's like I can hear the voices of Clinton and Stacy from What Not to Wear: be prepared to give yourself over mind, body, and total wardrobe . . . which, for a dog, would be all the fur on his back. On the one hand, competitive groomers often do some wacky styles using shears and (safe) dyes so who knows what you'd come back to, but who doesn't want a celebripup and that hair will grow back . . . eventually. If you were confronted with this opportunity (and chance of fame) at the dog park, would you agree or refuse?

I am very particular on how my German Wirehair looks. Buddy has a harsh incorrect coat, and does require specific grooming. They would have had fun with Buddy 's hair however....it would have lent a lot of creativity. But we have had more than one botched job with them cutting off his beard...entirely! I about died as he looked like a poodle! It did grow back of course in 6 months, and since we have stuck with the same groomer. I do like the show, and enjoy watching the different groomers. I didn't care for the color either. Mary gwprescue.com

I would never let a "groomer" from that show touch Zena! When we first got Zena, we called around our town for prices (the old owner said she loved going to the groomers. However, no one knew what a Decker Rat Terrier was! We wouldn't ever put Zena in the hands of someone who didn't know what her breed was. I'm the one who gives Zena baths and makes sure her fur and ears are clean.

I don't think I could let a professional groom my dog unless I was there to approve of the changes every step of the way. It's my pet that I must love and care for, not a show dog, so I think it's my responsibility to make decisions about his appearance.

I don't think I would let them do it. I'd be tense that they would cut his ear off the entire time, while knowing that they are professionals and likely more skilled than the groomer I already take him to.

They would never pick Cuba but I would tell them only if they did not color him. I hate when people do that it is mean and it looks stupid.

If and only if they promised not to color them!

I wouldn't let them color my dog. How dumb would you feel later walking around with that?

B-Bop doesn't have long hair and he's black so I don't think they would pick him. But if I did have a dog that would be more groomable I would totally do it. Like you said, it grows back if it's bad and hell it's a free groom!
