Senior pets receive comfort focused care. Many are blind, deaf, or hurting, and sometimes senile. I do the best I can with what these pets will allow. If the dog is "bad" about anything (nails, face/eyes, etc.) I simply go with the flow and don't "force" groom. They usually get most of what they need, but a happy, comfortable and safe experience is much more important than a "perfect" haircut.
The same applies to puppies, rescues or any dogs not used to being groomed. WIth regular grooming, trust can be quickly earned by these precious dogs, making subsequent appointments easier and possibly less time consuming. Its best to groom pups young (8-12 weeks) to help avoid later fear and stress.
CATS: I groom cats that are not known to be aggressive toward groomers. I can't/don't sedate, and no longer take unnecessary risks with high stress kitties.
