I have two small, older and slightly cranky dogs. I really needed to see a groomer for my Pom since she wouldn't let us clip her nails or brush her and my chihuahua wouldn't let us touch her nails either. I was nervous because I had never had this done for my dogs and didn't think they would react well since they don't care for stangers in general and hate to be groomed. I left the dogs there and when I came back to get them not only did they look great but my cranky chihuahua was being calmly blowdryed and accepting puppy kisses from the groomer. So now she isn't just a groomer to me, she's a dog whisperer. I highly recommend her!
