I worked as a dog groomer and you wouldn't believe the horror stories our customers told us about other shops. We always wondered WHY they never
reported them! If anyone abused my dog like that I'd call the cops asap, there would be no second chance or switching shops. I'd report them then
find another place.
I know where i live you don't need a license to be a groomer nor do you need any training. I was trained by my friend/co worker. She was trained by
the former groomer at the shop who was a HORRIBLE person to the animals. I only worked with the woman once and couldn't believe my ears.
I started out as the bather and that one day I worked with her was not a fun one. She yelled at almost every dog and her husband was there as well and
he wasn't suppose to be! She had been stealing money from the owners for years apparently and the day I worked with her she stole a bunch of
equipment as well. The owners never pressed charges, they just wanted her out of the shop. My friend that i worked with basically saved their shop. If
it wasn't for her they would have had to shut down! When i started working there as the bather and my friend as the head groomer we were slammed 6
days a week! The previous head groomer never opened and closed all the time where we kept the shop hours the way they should be! You could tell by the
way customers spoke that they didn't like the other lady but I always wondered why none of these people never filed a complaint.
I only know what my friend told me on how the other lady acted. She told me many dogs were mean to her because of how she treated them. We had quite a
few dogs that gave us ZERO problems yet they gave this other women problems and I guarantee it was because of how she treated them. They could sense
it! I felt so bad for the animals she was mean to. I don't know her last name otherwise I would have reported her for animal abuse. I do know she
moved once she left and opened up a shop in the house she was staying in. Well it was more like a barn she had the shop in with NO AC and there were
tons of birds in this barn from what I was told. I know of one dog she had taken and when we got the dog back after her it made me cry. He was a 15yr
old dog and she SHAVED off his moles. The owner was an old lady that we would go and pick up the dogs for so this former employee took advantage of
her and hurt the dog. The owner told us that when she got the dog back he was covered in dried blood! I mean WHY didn't she report her after that?! I
just don't get it!
I know of a few shops where I use to live that drugged animals to get their grooms done and another where she would constantly give the dogs clipper
burns and she also drugged dogs. There is NO excuse for clipper burn! NONE! It is easily avoidable if you know what you are doing and switch out your
blades often while grooming. It is pure laziness and lack of care for the animals. You also don't need to sedate an animal!! If it requires sedation
for a procedure then you don't need to be grooming the animal! If it is necessary then take it to a vet NOT a groomer! Its like these people didn't
care because the dog couldn't speak for itself when it was being abused.
I hope this person goes to jail! I didn't watch the video because I can't stand to see someone hurt dogs.
