#PetSmartGrooming Francesca goes to the Dog Groomer and Loves it!

Here I am looking muddy and stinky too!
Hi, it's me, Francesca. Remember when Cinnamon was teasing me about doing a review that involved a bath? Well, I did it! And my grooming appointment with PetSmart® went really well. So well, that it's Cinnamon that is jealous now!

This post is sponsored by PetSmart® and the BlogPaws® Pet Influencer Network. I am being compensated for helping spread the word about PetSmart Grooming Salons, but Coon Hound Tales only shares information we feel is relevant to our readers. PetSmart is not responsible for the content of this article.

This all started out with two issues that I have. They don't bother me, but they seem to bother everyone around me. I, like most coon hounds, do not smell the best (read... stink!) and I had been romping in the dog park and rolling in some really ripe stuff! I needed a bath to be allowed in my house! That's just my first issue.

The second one is that I have "flying hair!" My hair is short but its really plentiful. In fact, I leave white hair all over the place as I walk through the house. It's kind of like Pigpen in the comic strip Peanuts. Hair just drops off of me... and its not seasonal! And, it's everywhere!

So I had to admit I needed help.

It was easy to get an appointment with PetSmart Grooming. We did it all online. We could choose the service needed, the time of day and even choose a groomer if we wanted to. My appointment was on a Friday afternoon so I'd look good for the weekend! I signed up for a bath, pedicure and FURminator treatment. (Well, my owner signed me up).

We drove over to PetSmart which is near my house and walked into the grooming salon in the back. They knew I was coming and had assigned me a groomer since it was my first time. I made a fool of myself jumping up to see what was going on and looking for treats.

Bridget made me feel comfortable and so I kissed her!
My groomer, Bridget, came out to greet me and went over the list of services. Since she mentioned bath, I decided, to escort myself right out the door. It didn't work. I had a leash on. Drat! But then Bridget got down on my level and petted me and told me everything would be ok... and it would be fun to be pampered. I decided to go ahead with the appointment. And, Bridget said I didn't need the FURminator treatment after all. The bath, milk bath conditioner and a hearty brushing would take care of everything.

So I went back for my pedicure. It was over before I knew it. Then it was time for the bath. We went back to the tub area and I got sprayed down. They I had the most marvelous shampoo you could imagine... Tangerine shampoo! Yum. Next was the conditioner to soothe my dry skin and make my coat soft. I loved the massage part. Ahhhhh.
When I came out after the bath, I looked gorgeous!
I wasn't ready for that to be over but it couldn't go on forever. My owner was waiting to take pictures! I felt like a movie star. Back in the salon, I received a wonderful brushing. My loose hair was flying all over the place! The appointment took more than an hour, easy. They gave me the royal treatment.

When I finished, I didn't smell any more and my fur stayed on me... it wasn't flying all over the place! I now have a new best friend at PetSmart and her name is Bridget. She did a great job and made me feel comfortable the whole time. In fact, I'd recommend the services to Cinnamon. Her coat needs to be cleaned and it wouldn't hurt to have it made a bit more shiny!

It's now a couple of weeks after my appointment. Know what? I still don't shed like I used to!

There's some things you need to know before you book your PetSmart Grooming appointment:
- Bring your rabies vaccination information from your vet's office.
- You have to be over 8 weeks old to get services.
- Your owners have to stay behind the doors to the grooming area.
- They guarantee satisfaction.

You can follow PetSmart on Twitter or Facebook. I follow them on Instagram because I like to see dog pictures!

Love, Francesca
