Grooming

 I love  grooming my wheatens and take pleasure in making them look like the breed standard.  I am not a fan of the "puppy cut" for the following reasos.

 1.   The fall is there to protect their eyes from the sun.  If your wheaten's eyes are runny, it is shprobably because the fall has been removed.

    2.   Keeping the hair on the ears long often leads to ear intections as they canot aerate. 

    3.  There should be minimal hair on the rear and back of the tail for hygenic reasons.

    4.   Wheatens can sunburn.  Their coat is their protection from the direct sun keeping them cooler and their skin from becoming dry and itchy.

     5.  Lastly, the breed standard for grooming a wheaten has never shown a puppy cut.  You can keep the hair shorter, but within the proper framwork.

I would be more than happy to groom your wheaten.  Where you obtained him is of no concern to me. 

An appointment is required as your dog will be the only one being groomed.  You therefore do not have to worry about parasites, fleas, etc. from other animals. No ther dogs will be sharing the room your dog is in. Nor will your dog ever be left unattended on the table.

Your dog will be washed with breed appropriate shampoos rather than "products on hand". 

Once washed, your wheaten will be blown dry in sections to prevent matting, not caged with a dryer aimed at him. 

He will be groomed with thinning shears, not just clipper and scissors. 

And best yet, he will look like the breed when completed. 

Our prices are more than competitive so you will not be charged for the additional care.  Can't beat that!

Please call for an appointment.  At present I have openings for 8 more precious dogs.
