Fishy? Groomer can make big bucks, my mother held the record for gromming the longes years ever, from 1959-2001! She paid off her house, her cars, and raised my sister. She purchased some fantastic paintings, etc and did very well.
But its hard work. He doctor told her to quit and she refused, she wore the knuckle out on her scissor thumb, and finally the doctor bought some plastic stuff and made her a brace for her thumb! He knew how stubborn she was.
I Groomed to, while in jr, and high school and even later in college, I helped her in her shop for lots of extra bucks. But again, its very hard work on your hands and back, oh and neck.
Also, you get hair everyplace you dont want it! But you can take the skills anywhere and get a job.
Sorry, long winded.. Its not the easy way out. But if she can be ill tempered its not the job for her. You have to have the patience of a saint. You cant hang the dogs, you cant beat them and take out the fact some wiggle constantly and it wastes 3 hours and now you are late and wont be done till 11pm and xmas eve is tomorrow and you have 25 dogs on the books!
