Taking your dog on a nice long walk before visiting the groomer is SO beneficial.  

It helps set them up for success. 

#1. They have expended some energy, enabling them to be calmer and therefore safer during grooms. 

#2. They have gone potty so therefore are more comfortable, less fidgety and won’t go potty right after on their fresh new coat.
