    We do the same thing as Jeannine does i don't see a point to pay a groomer for what i can do myself -it is a very stinky business and if you do it first hand it is kind of scary but as time passes you will get the hang of it

    Yeah, you guys do have a point. I watched the videos on it, but I just keep thinking it'd be so much easier to have a groomer give her a bath and do them - I would just make Brynn mad... and I would hate to cause stress to her as she is still new around here. But, then I worry what if the groomer has never taken care of a bully? They could say they have, but then again I could just go back through and make sure the tail pocket, wrinkles, ears ect are all dry.

    I will say that the couple of times I have had to do Wilson (he really doesn't have an issue like Jack), he's spinker is very tight and he's much harder to do. I was a bit nervous the first time I did Jack but the more I did it the more I learned and became a pro at it. I never would have imagined in this lifetime that I would be talking about anal glands so freely. But as the saying goes, "it is what it is". It takes a bit getting used to just like doing their nails, each gland is different and each gland may express differently. For Jack, his right side is easier to do, it's the left that doesn't release as it should and is the harder one to do.

    Let Bree get made at someone else.

    It does seem simple to do! However, I still made an appointment with a groomer tomorrow morning for her to get them done, a bath and her nails. Then I will be the good mom that comes back to bring her home instead of making her mad hahaha.

    My vet never makes me pay an office visit for small things like that and it's only 18 bucks to have it done there. I don't take Sheldon to a groomer because the last time she used some type of shampoo on him that made him miserably itchy it took about two weeks and benadryl every night to finally get him comfortable.

    That's our issue - shes doing the butt scratch quite a bit the last day and a half so I figured better take her in - couldn't get her in today so tomorrow morning. I just hope they know what they are doing and I don't get a itchy bully back
