The owner is the client. The dog belongs to the owner. If you don't want to groom the dog in the manner directed by the owner then you have the choice of refusing the client and the client can take his or her dog elsewhere. You have no right whatsoever to take liberties with the clients property... and certainly no right to expect to be monetarily compensated for it.

Sorry to tell you CA but pro grooming is not fast or easy and we work hard for the (bucks). I can't count the times i've have tryed to school owners in Brush and Comb, but they don't want to spend the time at home doining it.I would never try to dematt a dog, it is painfull and i'won't hurt a dog for fashion. What is heartbreaking is when dogs get hot spots under the matts and the owners don't know they are there.Sometimes you have to educate yourself that's why we have great web site like DC. Your friendly (dog's friend) neigbhood groomer.

Too many groomers are in it for the fast
Owners are not professional groomers. They need
be educated so they are doing the combing and brushing at home in the right manner. I have found this out the hard way many many times.
little time showing me the right way would
saved incidents and heartache.

Perfect explanation on this often encountered problem for the caring groomer. When I had a new client, we had a "pregroom" consultation. Most owners would agree to shave down a badly matted coat after I handed them the comb and had them try to get thru the coat. Also the sight of the sharp dematting tool that I would have to use if they did not want the shave down would usually do the trick. I also always got a signed release form. Sadly some owners just did not "get it", or care, and refuse. In that case I would send them on their way, politely explaining that "I will not subject any dog to a painful dematting proceedure."
