sucks that you've had a bad experience. hitting dogs isn't okay, and i wouldn't allow smoking anywhere near our facility mostly cuz i hate smoking and ... yuck. but yeah, about nippin with the shears, i could say i totally am appalled at that, but accidents happen. if it's happening all the time, i can see why people would be MAD and yourself in particular. myself, i've never cut anyone with shears but i did nick an armpit once about a year and a half ago and i was just devastated. i don't want to make any excuses or anything, but accidents do happen, and you just have to remind yourself to take it easy and go slow and if the dog is bad enough that you are at risk of cutting often, then send em to the vet so they can be put out for their groom. jmo on nicking and cutting dogs.

Tips are always good. I've tipped people who weren't expecting it, like gas station attendants, at least when I can afford to do so. If an employee is doing a good job and they manage to make me smile, that's worth a tip to me.

1 : She should have been reported ... so knowing she does this and not do nothing about it makes it just as bad.

And your lesson should be never leave her with your dogs. I would say its not fair to lump us all in to that kind of bad image, just as we don't like our dogs grouped up because of what some bad situations.
There's bad in every kind of job ... ruins it for the good ones ......
I have never clipped or nicked a dog and I do not want to jinx myself, but I have been bit badly, even with the owners here, had my fingers mauled by a little ankle biter and owner laughed ... I did not find it funny at all considering these are the same hands I need to work with ...

Anyway that groomer should have been reported and should not be doing business with anyone .......

I always tip! Legend has gone to the same groomer since He was 8 weeks old and they always roll out the red carpet for him on his Spa Days! LOL. And since he's such a goof(plays when being hand air forced dried and steals the toothbrush and eats all the toothpaste and sings and splashes when in the tub) His bill comes to $25 and I always tip both the groomer and her assistant $10-$20.

My old boss had a very vicious bichon, and he tipped the groomer 10 bux every time, because even though he brought her in muzzled, they usually would try to groom the face and remove the muzzle, and would get nipped, but since he was so nice and tipped well they always tried, even though he didnt ask. He also gave them a christmas gift, like he would order them an edible arrangement or something.
