I spoke to Louise about grooming my rescue dog Teddy who is still extremely nervous when being handled, but has a very thick coat that needed a professional groom. Louise spent the first 30 mins just talking & petting Teddy to get him as calm as possible and used a body bandage technique to make him feel more secure. This method worked! and Teddy even had a bath!! He looked fantastic after and is now much more comfortable for the summer. I can now feel relieved that Teddy will be able to be groomed with the minimum stress to him. I will however only be visiting Louise at Sooty Paws for his future treatments....
