Getting your dog used to the various pieces of grooming equipment or similar things when she is at home in a familiar environment is really helpful.

Our goldendoodle drools with fear because of the loud dryer noise. Our groomer said she starts being very sad toward the end of her bath and has never bit but is just pathetic. Our groomer recommended serotonin but not sure how we feel about drugging her to have her groomed.

It's a good idea to get your dog comfortable with a reputable groomer even if you normally do it yourself. You never know when you're going to need to have someone else groom them.

My yorkie had a bad experience at a groomer and I have never taken him to another. He became overheated in the cage because of the dryer hanging on the door of the cage. He wasn't able to escape the heat and was hyperventilating and thrashing around in the cage. For about 6 years after every time I gave him a bath and toweled dried him he would run into walls and hyperventilate, I guess having flashbacks of that dryer.

I've had dogs that were okay with the groomer but never any that enjoyed it. Why would they?
