Yesterday I got a small bite on my hand from the cutest puppy. I love to use the mineral rescue cream from @soospets to help with the sting. Its so soothing and healing! I also use it on dogs when they get clipper burn and its great to put on scores caused by over scratching and itching.
Short and "pet-ty" but still westie
Keeping the breed standard is hard when your pet clients like it as short as can be. Just keep in mind 3 circles are in the Westie face and you will achieve perfection

Kinda cried when I saw my packages on my porch.
This month has been overwhelming to say the least. I am so grateful for the community who has helped me and supported my art. I want to give a special shout out of gratitude to my sponsors @andisgrooming and Megan for reaching out and helping where they could. Im proud to be apart of such an amazing company and community of followers, friends, clients, and co-workers of the virtual world #andisgroomnation #andisgirlforever #love #community #gratitude #support #art
Im starting a new thing. Every Friday I will leave you a tip!
Todays #Gtip is about coat maintenance. Dogs come in with matts in the coat ALL the time, like every dog. An easy way to get the matts out is to use a jagg'ed edge razor tool that splits the matt up into smaller matts for you to brush out. Although easier this is very damaging to the coat. Our whole job is coat care, at least its my philosophy. Using a slicker brush and comb you can work out even the severe of them all with no damage to the coat or dog. In no time you will develop proper technique and speed. Also, time is money. When it comes to de-matting I charge double my hourly rate on top of any service. When a new client comes in I love to take 5 min and explain the importance of brushing and combing on a daily basis. I show them how to properly brush their dog to avoid matts. A lot of the time people don't even realize the matts are there!
Basically how I feel right now.
Thank you to everyone for the support after the last post about having all my expensive grooming equipment stolen. A lot of you have asked to donate in one way or another. I have friends sending equipment (lifesavers)!!! I also set up a Venmo act. My email address is email@example.com and my username is @Gina-Hanks
Shit happens to everyone. I am really grateful to everyone who follows and supports me and my art. You are not unnoticed. Thank you
