From alpha dogs to Goldendoodles...
If you thought humans were funny, just wait until you get a glimpse of the dogs in Jennifer Tilman's life. As a dog groomer, Jennifer's clientele consists of everything from Dobermans to prissy poodles. While her job has its benefits—she is paid to be with her favorite animals all day!—she definitely learns the meaning of a crappy day more than once, literally. Who else expels the anal glands for the beloved pets?
Affectionately told with humor and honesty, Jennifer's confessions from the grooming world offers insight into the surprisingly profound lives of man's best friends. Sharing her techniques for preparing your dog for optimal health and happiness, Grooming Tales will have owners ready to embrace a whole new world of doggy care. What are her methods for bad-mannered dogs? What are the smartest breeds? What is the best pet for children? Do pets really look like their owners? The answers may surprise you. All will be revealed through quirky and educational accounts of Jennifer's own experiences with her canine clientele.
Despite the advertisement there is very little humor in this book. It is mostly a tedious description of the ways to groom different breeds of dogs.
This is exactly what it sounds like - tales from a groomer. She sounds genuine and like she really enjoys her work. A light-hearted listen.
