Groomers have usually completed some sort of formal training and will not be offended if you ask for their credentials and some references from their customers. Most groomers will have this information already included in their brochure or advertising literature. Consider going to the facility by yourself before the first appointment and asking to watch them work with a dog. They may allow this or may not, but most groomers understand an owners concerns and will do their best to work with the owner to ensure satisfaction.
Shelties tangle easily, particularly the soft silky fun behind and under the ears, but also on their chests, and under their tails. Before soaking your dog down and shampooing, spray these areas lightly with a detangling solution and use a comb to check for tangles. Detangle with a special detangling tool. If you wet your sheltie down without checking for tangles, the tangles will tighten and may have to be shaved out later, leaving holes in the coat.
There are several ways to find a good groomer and one of the most obvious is to talk to other dog owners that you see as you are out and about with your pet. Dog owners in general tend to be very willing to give recommendations as well as warnings about good and bad experiences they may have had with groomers in your area. If you see a dog that looks just like you want your dog or has just the clip that you have pictured for your dog be sure to speak with the owner and find out what groomer they use.
