27 January 2015: Chow down on this
My goodness, you have got to give yourself more than three hours to groom a Chow – and, when the owner books a groom, make sure you ask when was the dog’s last groom!
This will not only determine the price charged but also the time that needs to be allocated.
I find most Chows amiable and pleasant to groom but if the groom’s going to be a long haul it’s really got to be an early start in the day and even then only after the dog’s been walked, has had its breakfast, a rest and is calm and contented.
