Teddy is in desperate need of a shave. Does anyone know of local dog groomers, provide contact info?

Teddy is a Poodle/Jack Russel Terrie mix, with poodle-ish hair. No froufrou stylee needed/wanted. He gets a plain shave down, though I don't mind a little "bunny tail" pouf for individuality.

I have access to a car at this point, so I can travel a bit.


Thanks.

I would buy a $20 pair of electric clippers. Teddy never struck me as the salon type of pooch.

And inexplicably, somehow you want people to take you seriously as a rock climber?

What, exactly, is that supposed to mean, MarcC?

Chip - Teddy has had handmade hair cuts in the past. It takes a loooong time to scissor clip him, and since I don't have electricity, an electric shears isn't an option(as well, I doubt if I can find a dog clipper for $20). Human shavers would get overheated with the amount of time it takes to trim a dog, and to burn him sure isn't going to help with the fact that he doesn't love getting a clip in the first place.

There's something wildly incongruous about a climber owning the kind of dog that needs a hair-do.
It's just not right.

Terry, I'm long past being taken serious as a climber. For his summer cut we used to take our Border Collie up the road to "Shaggy Dog"here in Montgomery. Phone #361-4500. It's about 30 minutes from the cliffs.
Don't worry about being "incongruous". I'm sure Teddy looks quite manly with a buz cut. Not sure about the bunny tail though, how about a mohawk? RC

Thanks, Rick. I'll check that place out!
As for Teddy being a dog that needs a hair-do:

(About half-way to needing a haircut, not "hairdo")


(Just after a haircut)


(Oh no! He's on the loose! As shown, Teddy is a sporty chap.)


Teddy says: "I scoff at one who would suggest I need a hair-do. The bunny tail is just for added cute factor! I swear!!!!"

So how long is your hair by now, Mr. "Serious Rock Climber" C?
