My friend told me about this one and well I don't know if it's PD yet or not because the young woman still seems to be in business but her methods are less than professional.
Okay, bff lives in a small midwest town and takes her dog to the vet to be groomed. Another groomer opened a business in town and the vet, being rather busy with usual vet business and grooming, recommended quite a few of their patients to this young woman. Including my friend, who has taken her dog to this groomer at least once and she did a fine job.
About a week or so ago, friend had an appointment to take her dog to this groomer (who apparently works out of her house) but the woman texted her saying "Sorry, I have a sick child, I can't groom your dog today." That wasn't what bothered my friend. But when she called to reschedule and found out the groomer was rather booked and wouldn't have an opening for another month, my friend said "Well I'll get him an appointment with the vet then, cause he needs to be groomed for the summer."
This groomer says "Well I heard their new groomer isn't very good, I wouldn't go to them." Friend told me, and I rather agree, that it seems rather unprofessional to say something like that when they have sent business to her to help get her grooming business going. And fwiw, friend asked around and apparently no one she knows has had a complaint about the vets new groomer.
And apparently she called a few times to get friend's dog in and repeated it again that the vet's new groomer isn't very good.
