Prepping Percy for his Service Dog Duties

asked Dec 5, 2023 in Other- Sports by Turip (780 points)
My service dog in training, Percy, is almost ready to start joining me in public. However, I want to get him groomed first so he looks neat and presentable. Do you know of any Calgary dog groomers that have experience working with service dogs? His training is very specialized so a groomer knowledgeable about proper service dog handling and grooming would be best. I'd appreciate any recommendations!

Oh! I know how important it is to find a groomer familiar with service dogs for Percy's training. I recommend https://doggroomercalgary.com . They have several groomers experienced with service dogs and therapy animals. I took my friend's service dog there and the groomer was fantastic - very calm, patient and used to handling dogs with specialized needs. Percy will be in great hands! An added plus is they have availability for appointments within a week or two, perfect timing as Percy prepares to accompany you in public. After my elderly dog Zoe developed mobility issues, doggroomercalgary was also gentle and attentive during her grooming visits. Their care with service animals extends to all dogs needing a little extra patience. I'm sure Percy will come back neat, clean and ready to tackle his next steps of training!
