Most groomers shy way from naughty, nasty dogs in a busy grooming salon but not Hilaire! She loves these ‘special needs’ type pets, in fact, they are one of her specialties! Munchie goes from a sweet, loving Lhasa to a raving loon in the blink of an eye. He is loud and very aggressive, especially when working on certain parts of his body. This video training lesson is filled with real life tips and tricks that allow you to keep both you and the pet safe while still getting the job done.
