Default Commercial Buzzzzzz Cuts

This summer, I took my female Bouvier to our local Petsmart. I told the girl that I wanted a 50% reduction and to TRANSISTION the cut. Well, when I got Bear back, you wouldn't have known the dog. Skinned down, poof hair, and looked like some that even the cat would not drag in. Anyone else have such fun times with "professional" groomers?

Yep, I've seen it happen to... and even with "Professional" Bouvier groomers as well. Most chain store groomers do ok with the standard breeds and with dogs of people that don't know how their dog is suppose to look in the first place, but if they are groomers that can do a good job on the non-standard breeds, then they probably wouldn't be working at places like PetSmart. And I'd never take their word for it that they know what they are doing.

At least with hair, it does grow back. Vets that say they know how to dock tails or crop ears and don't, well, that's a different story.
