Passion for Grooming
Since we bought our first American Cockers that we had in the family I had a passion for bathing and clipping them. I have never been interested in playing with Barbiedolls, I had the dogs instead. Actually it started already when I was 10 and was nearly drowning my New Forest Pony, I washed him nearly every day. My father warned me “he will turn into a Fish if you dont stop”.
After having Standard Poodles for 25 years I still have a passion for grooming. I love to keep my dogs nice and clean even if they are not being shown, they always looks good.
The breed is lovely and I don´t want people to get afraid of getting it because of the coat. I tell my pet buyers that it´s better to keep them in a short haircut and look after them than trying to get a big show coat when you are not interested. To have a Poodle in show coat you really need to love it.
It´s not really difficult it just needs passion for it!
