Great site!

I did have to laugh at myself... where they list the tools you'll need, I didn't realize it was a numbered list and took it at face value at first. All I could think was why do you need 5 nail cutters and 6 flashlights to groom a golden?!?!?

Well, it wasn't as bad as I feared. The trick is to trim against a dark surface, not a golden tapestry rug LOL .... and to do one side and then flip to the other. But all in all, not too bad for my first try. I need to touch it up a little, I think I'll try that while she's standing, if I can get her to hold still!

What a waggers!
Tail and feet are the only things I do well! Oh, and sometimes ears went out good, I usualy mess up with neck
Only I have noticed that we start to cut tail from tail spine (very close to it) so you can see the real leanght of tail. They usualy wiggle when I cut that part.

I'm not even going to try her neck! I love her mane, especially in the winter. I'd be lost without it!
