Hello, all...I was looking for a site to help groom my dogs at home and found this forum, which is new to me. I have a 8 year old black Lab, Katie, who is very motherly. Then there is Mitze, my Shih Tzu, who is 4 years old and very much the care taker. I have been grooming both at home for about 2 years now and have started to look for other cuts for Mitze. She has the wavy type of hair and I have been keeping it short with the tail and ears long like the groomer had done in the past.
