This week we're talking about the business end of grooming dogs with behavior issues. You might be thinking "Im not a groomer" or "I don't own a business" so I don't need to listen to this one, but this one is for groomers as well as owners and other dog professionals. I want you to understand how a behavior problem can impact a business. You should not be losing money working on challenging dogs.
