    Sorry- my wife's dog is groomed by a lady in Indianola that does real well, but I don't personally know anyone closer.

    My buddy used to take his dog into the place that is just off the 65/69 bypass on the far east end of Army Post.

    Here is another vote for Sudsy Dog. I live in Granger and they travel over, so that shouldn't be an issue for you. I have a Black Lab and when she sees Sudsy Dog coming up the driveway she runs right for her. I would also say for the time and work that is done, it is very affordable.

    We use 4 Paws unleashed as it is by far the cheapest we could find ( we have a golden-doodle)... 4 Paws Unleashed: Doggie Daycare | Pet Boarding | Training | Grooming. Its about $50 for our dog (about 80 lbs). Id be curious if there were anything cheaper as well!

    Shave his *** and teach him to walk backwards! Oldie, but a goodie.


    I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

    I have some old calf clippers, bring him by my house and for a six pack I'll make him look real nice.


    Disclaimer - there is a 99 percent chance that this could go really bad, which in case I still keep the six pack.

    Just booked an appointment at the "Bark Zone" for 40-45. This doesn't include a full cut though. Just a trim, bath, etc.

    Depending on how old your dog is, I know Pet Smart does a "puppy" trim and bath for like $20...but I think the dog has to be younger then 6 months (don't quote me on that).

    Just make sure they milk the glands.

    We had them suppress the anal glands last time, and our dogs ******* turned bright red and he was licking it for a week. I guess you're supposed to do that with every cut, but it seems to be a less than desirable procedure.

    Wow....my dog seems to get an extra spring in his step after visiting the groomer. He also likes listening to Elton John though.

    Buy a grooming kit for 18 bucks, watch the DVD that comes with and save yourself 50 bucks. :)

    Of course that works with a Shih Tzu...with a Golden Retriever, we've had good luck with Ankeny Pet Salon.
