Having Old English Sheepdogs means that good pet ownership involves regular grooming. Most of the time, the owner, me, manages to do regular maintenance grooming, but it is a delight when Pat comes to give the dogs a bath and grooming. The dogs are not wild about our grooming time together, but they just love it when Pat comes -- could it be the treats?\r\n\r\nPat will do grooming that is fairly time-intensive. For example in the Summer and Fall, we like the dogs in a puppy cut that is a little on the longish side. Many groomers will just shave the dogs down to the skin, whereas Pat will patiently scissor their coats down.
