I've just taken on a Bichon and she's an ex puppy farm girl, her coat was pretty sparse when she came to me 5 weeks ago but it's now coming in thick and fast. I really would like to have a groomer that would allow me to stay with Ellie as she's very wary of anyone but me. I don't want her to be put in a crate as I'm positive that it would freak her out, it's horrible to see the way she reacts to some things that happen around her and I really don't want her to take a few steps backwards in her recovery. I would prefer the groomer to be in the Leith or surrounding areas as I don't drive and hate having to depend on my family. Ellie the day we got her. One of her baldy bits that's starting to come in. Starting to feel at home.
