hahahah!! I know how you feel!!! It took me a while to find a groomer that I liked -- I feel like I'm more picky with the girls haircuts than I am with my own!! I even gave a picture of the exact trim I wanted for Gracie, and I was sooooo sad when I picked her up and they chopped off all her feathering and trimmed her ears but didnt thin her out at all! Luckily I found a more experienced groomer at another shop that does exactly what I request. I have discovered that you really need to do your research because lots of groomers actually have NO real training. I think the good ones are called "master groomers" - at least in my region.
