Pros: able to work with dogs everyday.
Cons: strained work environment due to not enough employees
I would groom approximately 3 dogs a day, answer phones, schedule appts., ring up customers at end of groom.
I learned a lot about how dogs react to different situations.
My co-workers were great,very helpful and supportive.
The hardest part of my job was to answer the phone every time it rang. I had to chain my dog to the floor and continue the groom – more... when I was done with the phone call. It would have been ideal to groom the dog with minimal interruptions.
The most rewarding part of my job was knowing that the dogs were happy and looked terrific when they left the salon. – less
