Vito stop[Music]you can try but if once it she'sWatch at: 04:00 / 04:20screaming and said we're not gonna dothat she's only 12 weeks old like 12beats tomorrow or the next day I thinkso we want to get our youth to it but wedon't want to make it so the next timeshe comes in she's like really screamingthat make senseWatch at: 04:20 / 04:40and so we're gonna do half I'm gonnaactually try to do the half Bob withoutbrushing her first I told you guysalways brush first but her hair ispretty short anyway yeah so I mean ableWatch at: 04:40 / 05:00to take it take it off without brushingbut I'm gonna

youget the bristles wet they actuallychange the strength of the bristleWatch at: 12:40 / 13:00padding so I recommend having a bristlebrush by the tub and you use it only forthe wet dogs I've sold a lot of these onthe YouTube channel so if you want abrush let me know they're awesome if youhave the right brush you can actually dothe work and do it faster running allWatch at: 13:00 / 13:20that

sweepWatch at: 15:00 / 15:20all right we're back we're gonna toweldry and then we're gonna blow dry we'llcome back after the blow drying thanksfor watching and grooming Sadie andwe're gonna tape it's like hey let's putit on YouTube so here we go YouTube blowWatch at: 15:20 / 15:40drying a puppy he's not always thechoice that you're gonna make okay sothe reason why is because it's a lotgoing on you're already grooming the dogso I'm gonna take this offand my blow dryer is a challenging ordouble K it's four hundred and somethingdollars if you want one I can get it foryou but I can move a blow dry to inWatch at: 15:40 / 16:00like five to eight minutes it's amazingas long as you tell dry the dog sorrybaby what are you doing she don't hearjumpin our puppies are sometimes animalsthey're they're animals but they'remaniacs are jumping aroundokay so sorry about that she was doingher own thing okay um we're gonnaattempt to blow-dry her I don't wordthere's the bet I don't think she'sWatch

it's justWatch at: 17:00 / 17:20perfect it's just perfect by the time Iget done brushing and everything will bealright but she's not bone dry and shedid pretty well for it so here we go I'mnot gonna push everything that I'm doinglike I normally would on a like a lossor Shih Tzu a dope dog like I mean pushWatch at: 17:20 / 17:40like finish I'm not gonna finish like Iwould if she wants to be jumping aroundfeisty scared and you know like allthose things all those emotions we'rejust gonna keep it nice and simple forher so I'm gonna brush this all out andgo back over it with the one guard ifWatch at: 17:40 / 18:00she was more still then that would besomething but you guys remember thatother puppy we were doing he wasn't buthe was much worse and it's at firstgrooming but he said he did come aroundbut there was no choice on his groomingit wasn't just for looks aestheticaesthetics it was for he was mad and andsmelled like urine do you remember thatWatch at: 18:00 / 18:20one so in her

  1. You're way too rough AND tense for this puppy!!! She/ he feels your energy. She needs to be praised and you need to show some compassion and understand these dogs DONT know what you're doing to them!! Relax and if you don't enjoy what you're doing, move on to something else! I feel bad for this little puppy!

  2. Maltipoo dogs ate very fragile. The way The way the groomer was holding her by the neck and the leash around her neck could cause trachea collapse or injury. I would not trust my baby to her.

  3. I’m not digging the rushing and discipline to the puppy. If you took your time and talked to the puppy in a lighter tone, maybe he/she would be more co-operative. And why the hell are you pulling hair out of that puppy’s ears!!?? If you can’t afford ear powder you don’t need to groom! You would never groom my babies.

  4. You are so right about if the dog is fighting it’s not worth it, a lot of pet parents need to brush and pre groom before you start taking the dog to the groomer, it’s had on the pet and groomer.

  5. She says "no" a lot to a puppy who doesn't know what "no" is… now next time her owner says "no" she's gonna think that's a stupid noise humans make that means nothing.

  6. Im professional groomer for over 30 yrs all the poodles come to me loved me clipping them. Try being more kind and relaxed its a baby. Just stop grrr

  7. W have the same dog but it's a male 3 -1/2 months old, we gave him a bath every week but still have the unpleasant smell from him. Would you have any idea or what to do for that smell? Thank You

  8. Jeez. She is SO rough with this little dog. How many times did this tiny dog fall off the table with a noose around her neck? What a TERRIBLE first experience. Sadie’s mom—find a gentler groomer!!Yikes.

  9. Omg, you need to get out of dog grooming. She is not acting like a maniac, but you are. I would never bring my dog to you. You are way to rough. I guess you do want them out in 30 minutes and collect your money. I feel so bad for that sweet dog. You are a bitch

  10. Dede, forget the naysayers. You are a champ and I’ve learned SO much from your videos. You are knowledgeable, professional and deal appropriately with all your clients (at least the ones we see on YouTube). I’m in California and I wish I could go out to Texas to have you groom my fur baby.

  11. this puppy is SCARED and this woman clearly doesn’t know what she’s doing. she doesn’t care and shouldn’t be grooming dogs if she can’t handle a puppy properly. she’s the maniac. she should be fired.

  12. Omg!! The puppy almost fell off the table when she turned around to get the brush! Please move your tools closer to prevent that from happening. That puppy could have hung itself as high is that table is.
    Geez I am so nervous after that myself.
