It's time for Monday's pictures and shop talk!
I had one cancellation, my other four showed, and I did a full Soft Paws application! I was so excited :) I just started the Soft Paws program for dogs, and so far I really enjoy it. It's a great benefit for the seniors, especially, since their babies have a tendency to rip their thin skin wiiide open. I'm not charging much: $10 for two paws and $15 for four (haha, buy 3 get one free?) but I'm still making money from them and gaining clients. It's so hard to set prices in our area because so many of our clients are wonderful low-income clients who really care about their critters and want to take care of them. I just have to stay away from those pricing surveys for a while, I guess. If (when!) I get my own place, though, there will have to be a total pricing restructure. But anyway, about Monday:
This is going to be a short one, because I am still not in the habit of taking pictures of everyone! I had a... Cock-a-Tzu? Followed by two black poodles and a yorkie, with a Soft Paws application somewhere in the middle. Everyone was good, and I only have pictures of one of the grooming clients, so he can be the Before and After star of the day!
Coalie's Mom wanted to try out square ears and, so they are in transition from round to square. She also wanted me to do the crazy shaving above his eyes, but it actually turned out handsome on him. You'll see Coalie before, Coalie after, and then a picture of Button with her snazzy new Soft Paws pawdicure :)
