Leo's First Official Groom

Hi All!! Just sharing some pictures of Leo After His first official groom! The "attached" picture is his before and the rest are after. I think he looks so handsome I just had to share!!

So much better!

Bet he feels better getting all that dead loose coat off.

- Yes, his coat will absolutely grow out in the next year or two.

He looks perfect!

First grooms give me anxiety, there's a large GR community here and there's been horror stories of disaster cuts from local groomers others have used. I'm convinced I'll just need to do it myself when the time comes.

He looks awesome!! Where did you take him?? I'm always so scared of groomers not knowing how to properly groom a golden. That's pretty much the reason I'm learning how to do it myself LOL

Thank you all for the nice comments The first groom was definitely nerve wrecking! I made sure to go to a well reviewed place with someone that specialized in goldens! She was great and was herself a golden mom and understood my fear of getting his top coat touched. She just cleaned up his feathering, his tail and the long hail on his belly and ears. Super happy about the result
