Precious Pet Paradise Dog Grooming

by Lucky Red Hen on December 19, 2012

Our pooch was born in the home of a Utah groomer and has been professionally groomed once a month all her seven years. I don’t spend that much money on my own hair, but she can’t take care of it herself and my back isn’t keen on bending over to do it either.

Luckily we have Precious Pet Paradise in American Fork, Utah to take care of her. She’s gone there since we brought her home as a puppy and we missed them while having to take her to a sub-par place in Washington until we got back.

When we tell her we’re going to get her a bath, she gets overly excited, dances around, and runs to potty before hopping in the car. Her heavy breathing during the drive isn’t great (stinky dog breath, ugh) but I deal with it because I am glad she’s so excited instead of scarred/nervous.

I’m glad we love our groomer(s) and they love us. We did a trade, pictures for grooming and this is what I eventually accomplished after trying to get 12 people and 10 dogs to all look at the camera at the same time while having their best smile/expression inside a¬†fluorescent-lit room because it had snowed the night before (sweet run-on sentence, eh?) I didn’t realize I had enough Photoshop skills to pull this off (surprise!)

(pardon the weird pixelated background; compressing for the web must have been confusing)

Here’s the before…

…and after adjusting the lighting, coloring, cloning, head-swapping, and background erasing…

Great photos! My kids take their dog to Precious Pet. Ask them if they know Frankenstein ;)

I think I’ve either heard of or seen Frankenstein when I’ve been there to pick up Posie!

The pictures turned out great. I’m so glad you were able to get both my girls and that you even caught Gypsy with her ears perked up.

Proper dog grooming requires the proper knowledge, preparation, and equipment. It is extremely important to groom your dog as frequently as is recommended. Proper grooming is important for dogs for most of the same reasons that it is important for people.
