This is a great graphic of how a short-nosed dog has a more difficult time breathing in this heat. If your dog is overweight, they will also have a difficult time keeping cool. You should be able to easily feel, but not see their ribs. If you can't feel rib bones, it's time for a diet.
Be careful in this heat, but enjoy the summer!

Please share this post, it explains why hot days can be fatal to dogs!
When you read or hear about the bulldog-type, short-nosed (brachycephalic) breeds having more trouble with the heat, you may wonder why. On a good day, with moderate temperatures, they have a much more difficult time moving air to their lungs because of their anatomy.
This picture shows the back of the mouth of a long-nosed dog on the left (a collie-retriever cross) and a short-nosed dog on the right (a pug). You can see that this area is compressed and limited in the pug. Pugs, Bulldogs (all types), Bostons, Boxers, Shih Tzus, Lhasa Apsos, Pekingese, etc. all have this anatomy. The space is even more limited when they are overweight or obese.
When it is hot, dogs can only cool themselves by panting. Excessive panting leads to swelling in the back of the mouth and throat. This swelling makes it even more difficult for the brachycephalic breeds to breath and they can suffocate.
In fact, any dog can succumb to heat stroke or compromised breathing so PLEASE DO NOT exercise or leave dogs outside in the sun or in cars when it is hot. They trust us to make good choices and take care of them!

I'm thrilled to be spending my days with dogs again. 😁 I think I'm mostly caught up on appointments, so feel free to call or text me (texting is easier for me with a 1 year old at home). I can always take on nail trim appointments, but still not taking new grooming clients.

Also, this is Frankly the Skye Terrier and yes, she can see!

-One person at a time in the shop
-Masks must be worn
-As always, allow your pet to relieve themselves before grooming

Looking forward to seeing all of you!

According to Empire State Development, pet grooming is still considered non essential. They are the ONLY ones who can give essential designation. I have also been active with the NYS Professional Groomers Association and no groomers in that group have been given permission to open. I realize that some other groomers are open, but they are taking big chances. I will open when I am legally able to. Thank you for your understanding and continued support. I miss and love you all!

Many have been asking if I'm reopening because some other groomers have opened. I am still closed until May 15th! I have been in contact with empire State development and have been told that I am NOT essential and that grooming is allowed only if medically necessary. If that's the case, then it can be done by a vet. I'll be in the shop grooming my own dogs and the one that I dog sit for an essential worker. Give a wave of you see me!
I'm eager to get back to caring for your pets as soon as I can.
