So being a Border Terrier, she requires hand stripping and has this done twice a year. Our usual one has moved and so I found, what read as a fully trained groomer who did hand stripping. When she finished, she said to me Rosie had a couple of little nips/bites at her but was fine overall. Now Rosie has never bitten another dog or us in her life (now 9 years old) and then I saw that she'd literally pulled out all her whiskers and hair around her muzzle!! The 1st picture is from previous hand stripping and how a Border should look afterwards with short coat but tidy head but what this groomer has done is, in my mind, horrific. Rosie is down to the skin around her mouth, it must have been agony. Very upset and guilty I put her through that. Some groomers just cannot be trusted.
