Groomers in the Halifax Regional Municipality
There is a lot of groomers here and most of them are pretty good, but you've got to be careful that they don't hurt your dogs and also not do the things they're supposed to do like cut your dogs nails. I've come home so many times and my dog's nails are the same length they were they left and that makes me angry because now I've got to go somewhere else - do more trauma to the dog and get their nails cut.
Once you find a good groomer that you like - stick with them - they should be gentle - be willing to clean your dog's ears, do their anal glands (even though some groomers will tell you that's a medical procedure so they aren't allowed to do it - that's just hogwash) - they should do a lot of scissoring to get a good look to the cut - and all the eye goop should be gone from their eyes!
So here's a couple grooners from around the HRM

We now have a mobile groomer in the HRM! They only service the Hubbards area but that's a start!
