Q: What is it like working as a Dog Groomer and Bather?

Dog Groomer and Bather in Cleveland:
"I enjoy what I do, it truly makes me happy to see how good l."
Pros: I get to work with diffrent breads. I love all our dogs! I also work independently with them in day camp or in animal care making sure they are as happy as can be. Truly love what I do & they help me as much as I help them.
Cons: I have 35-40 baths in a 6hr period with no tips and only 3 large dog drier cages on top of sharing the tubs and equipment with 2 groomers. I will have desheds & deflea in between all this and it's very hard to manage time when I have 9 dogs at 9 o'clock with 3 desheds and a deflea in one hour. With no tips. I am the only person they do this to and it's fustrating. I also have been taught how to groom but they haven't paid me for any of the grooms I've done or even my tips.
