Rhode Island Seeks to License Dog Groomers

If you live in Rhode Island and take your dog to the groomer, you may want to weigh in on the pending legislation known as 2017-H 6054. The bill, introduced by State House Majority Leader K. Joseph Shekarchi (D-Warwick), would require that groomers be licensed, similar to the way in which hairstylists and barbers are licensed.

Similar legislation was defeated in 2013, but after a pug recently died during a nail trim at a big box grooming station, Shekarchi re-introduced the idea. No fault has been found in the dog’s death, but the lawmaker thinks this is an idea whose time has come.

Rhode Island would be the first state in the country to create any licensing requirements for dog groomers.

That’s Gonna Make One Heck of a Hairball!


Thanks to friend-of-the-blog Frank Fleischer for sending in this cute video. He says it was shot “shortly after a mock battle in which they nearly killed each other.”

Note to Frank: Koko is beautiful! I remember it wasn’t too long ago we were mourning the loss of your last Husky. Glad to see you found a wonderful new friend. And thanks for sharing the video!

Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!
