  • I think I'm going to attempt a haircut on my chorkie. I have been cutting people hair for 6 years. I do all the bathing now.

  • I take them to the groomers. I give them baths, but my maltipoo's hair is impossible. I trim his face in between appts.

  • I bathe my own dogs. The BRT I do his paws, testicles, penis and ears. His breeder grooms the rest of him.

  • I have taken my biggest dog to the groomer for baths when I first got him. But I was having back problems and could not force this 80 pound baby into the tub by myself. Now I have him trained to get in and out of the tub on command and do all of the grooming myself. Not that my guys need all that much.

  • MIne don't require grooming, just bathing. I bathe them myself, except for when I was pregnant. My dogs are both ~ 60 pounds.
