My dog Sam has been groomed by this guy since this past summer. The guy seems nice and brings a mobile grooming trailer to my house. He came highly recommended.
Sam has always seemed to like him but today when he got here as soon as Sam saw who was here ran to my room and while I was picking him up to bring him to the groomer peed on my bed. : ( (Sam is a Bishon/Shitzu)
This makes me really uncomfortable. I am home alone with a 2yo and a 4yo so I can't stand in there while he gets groomed but I did peek in the window when I picked up my son from school and the groomer told me I could come in so I did. Sam was getting dried off and did have a collar attached to the wall on (like many groomers use). It was clean in there and nice and warm.
Would this present a red flag to you like it does me or am I over reacting? I plan on talking to the groomer when he gets done (probably in the next 20 min) but don't even know what to say. If he is hurting my dog he is not going to say so. I am going to call the office after I talk to him as well. (It is a family run business so I will be speaking to his mom)
For what it is worth my friend and I use the same groomer and I called her and told her about it and she said her dog did the same thing when he came for her dogs last grooming.
I'm sad and concerned.
