|Benson’s after photo|
Our little Benson is a non-shedding dog. The downside of that is that he needs to be groomed once a month. It’s not his favorite pastime. When we sent our first child off to college, in our case with twins – first and second, I thought I would try to do the grooming at home to save a little money. The first time our daughters came home, they begged me to take him back to the groomer, offering to take a cut in their weekly stipend if needed.
Since doing it myself wasn’t a popular option, I was a little worried about how we would cope in Poland. There are three beauty salons on every corner in Poznan, but after months, I still hadn’t seen a dog grooming shop. Fortunately, our friends Ev and Rhonda have a Maltese, and they recommended their groomer, Eliza Tomczak. (Salon Kosmetyczny is the tab for grooming on her website.)
If you’re looking for a groomer in Poznan, I can’t say enough about Eliza. She raises and shows Airedale Terriers and as a groomer competes in international competitions. Unfortunately, her shop is across town from us, so Ben’s monthly grooming appointment shoots a big part of the day. We ride tram 16 to the next to the last stop and then walk a few blocks. While he’s there, I spend a couple of hours roaming Poznan Plaza Mall, and then travel home with a very good looking dog.
