We used to bring our dogs to the grooming salon. But we stopped going to the salon when the cost have gone up to $8 because we think it is exorbitant. My wife does the bathing and grooming at home. But last weekend, we again tried the salon just for old time’s sake. But not with our 3 dogs, it is just a trial so we had 1 dog groomed. It was okay but we were kind of surprised with the charge of $10. Gee, that’s pretty expensive for a shampoo and hair trimming. Now we are glad that we are bathing our dogs at home and we also do the once in a while trimming. It’s a nice thought to realize that we are saving a lot of money.
