Schnauzer Clipping in Kambah*

By The_Cassowary 21 February 2011 22

Morning Everyone,

After a sub-prime experience with the dog groomers down at Hume, we’ve been looking for a new place to get our Schnauzer shorn. A couple of different people we met at dog parks have told us about a woman in Kambah that specialises in Schnauzer cuts, but I haven’t managed to track down any other details, like a name or some contact details. Does anyone know of this ‘elusive’ dog groomer, or am I just the latest victim of the urban myth dog owners whisper to each other, huddled around take away coffees at dog parks on winter afternoons.

*Sounds like a good title for a Police Wrap

The groomer in Kambah made a mess of my dog. Rather than grooming him as I asked, she gave him a number 1 all over – he looked like a rat. When I pointed out that I’d specifically asked her not to trim his tail or ears, she told me it was my fault for not having him groomed more often. The irony is it takes at least 7 weeks to get in to see her… and now she only does little dogs which means I have to go somewhere else for the German Shepherd. I guess she has enough work to do as she pleases, including defying and patronising clients.

Same thing happened with my bubbas – have been going there for years and years and still have to say every time not to cut their tails or ears – go to pick them up and lo and behold, their tails and ears are cut. For the cost, it would be nice to have your dog looking how you like it.

I think it goes without saying (but I’ll say it anyway) when someone pays good money for their dog to be groomed, the dog should come back looking like there was some skill involved.

I thought about Kylie on the weekend as I trimmed my pooch myself. He looks adorable (and how he should) with mane and tail intact and that’s $70 of my hard earned cash that I don’t have to give that rude woman. Feels good to have the last laugh.

Steer clear of Animal Attraction at the Macquarie shops, they did a terrible job on our dog (completely shaved her when we asked for a trim) and were incredibly rude to boot!

I have had good experiences with the Ausie Pooch Mobile people but they are a franchise so depending on where you live you might get a different groomer? The guy who came to our place (in Macquarie) did a great job and was very friendly – but I agree with a lot of the comments above, if all you want is a trim (not a wash, nails clipped etc) then it would probably be worth investing in a good pair of clippers.
