Autumn Valley Golden Retriever Rescue has been attending Goldstock since the beginning except for one year when it clashed with the Golden Retriever Club of America’s National Specialty. We started off small with just me grooming and things expanded from there as our group grew. Grooming back in the day was usually from morning until dinner time and it was done on the deck of the rec hall. I remember not even stopping for lunch and Jenny O’Brien would bring me food and hand feed it to me. Those were the days J . Then we moved the grooming to under the back deck for a few years and now we have a setup in the garage area of the rec hall. Groomers from the past were Cheryl Minnier & Jane Fish. We had some very hairy Goldens to groom and one we nicknamed the Yak. It took all three of us to get the job done. Along came Brenda Woodard, Carol Dunn, Joe Anne Goodling & Eileen Hoyson to name a few that helped with the grooming. We groom mostly Goldens and have attempted at times other breeds. I even went so far as to groom Buddy’s Newfie.
A sign-up sheet will be at our booth or down in the grooming area. I will have a dryer there for those that need to dry your dog before their grooming session. Grooming will be done on Friday thru Sunday. We will also have Nancy's Natural Doggie Treats for sale.
There is no set fee. Any donation is welcomed.
Looking forward to seeing you all soon.
