Kzep: "can I find a good groomer for a standard poodle in Tequisquiapan? "

Can we trade places? I think I'd rather have your problems than mine.

If you have one criteria that is absolutely necessary, it might be best to visit and see how that thing/service compares to what you expect. Even if someone tells you on this forum, that it is available, you might find it is not what you expect or need.

This is not unique to Mexico. It is true in every country. Even moving across the US, you might find that things are not like what you are used to. That is part of the charm of moving in my opinion.
I am a little confused why you needed to hijack my questions to lecture people just moving into Mexico.

If you read it again, you may see the point he was making and it was very much on topic.

BTW, I'm with Meritorious on this one. Want to trade?

Adaptability is an asset. Your dog will adapt to having hair all over. No grooming is quite natural, and 'natural' seems to be the 'in thing', in some places. Mexico is very, very, 'natural'.

RV , you obviously have not walked in Roma or Condesa in CDMX for a long time. Breed dogs of all types can be seen on the street or at terrasses o restaurants and the dogs are perfectly groomed according to their breed.
You guys have to go out a little more in Mexico and will see that not all dogs are mongrols and that is is very" fifi" to have a perfectly groomed dogs.. Dogs do not care but the owners do. I noticed the same thing in Puebla and Orizaba in the park and it is coming to San Cristobal de las Casas as well.

There are lots of Mexico city people visiting the Queretaro area so I do not see why there would not be a few people grooming the expensise breed dogs of the week-enders.
The vets will know.

Mexico would be the perfect place to discover the beauty of a Xolo.

Standard poodles do not shed and there for must be groomed or they mat. The only other way to let them go without a groom is to do cords but those take forever to get started then a half hour per dog EVERY night to work the cords. And in the end is more grooming time than shaving.

There is nothing sadder to see a street dog with poodle type hair that has not been groomed. The mats are so bad it starts to create sores where the hairs pull tightly. The hair around the body cavities become matted in feces. The hair around the eyes can start growing inward causing eye infections and blindness. The inner ear hair, if it gets wet causes painful ear problems. The hair in between the toes grows and mats causing toes to splay outward making it painful to walk.

To keep a poodle natural you would have to constantly brush them which most do not enjoy. Plus, they would be horridly hot right now. They do not have the undercoat that allows air pockets for the skin to breath. These dogs were bred by man to meet a need and man needs to met their needs for proper care.

And from the two years living here, while Mexico may be "natural," the Mexican people are impeccably groomed. The last naturally groomed humans I have seen were the homeless where I am from.

I fostered a Xolo years ago and my good friend has three which she shows. I love them. I would not mind having one at all. However, it is not an option to put down or re-home my three dogs simply due it being more covenant to have another breed. Two of my Standards are puppy mill rescues who have been traumatized in their life enough already.

So, thank you for your answer but it still gives me know idea if there is a groomer in Tequisuiapan who has knowledge of working with standards. If there isn't, I can help a groomer there learn how but I thought someone in the area might have a dog with the non-shed coat that could give me a suggestion of who to try.

My boyfriend has Bernese Mountain Dogs and lives in Houston. If he asks if there is a good groomer on a website, I wonder if people would tell him it is better that he get a Labrador retriever as that is the most common dog there.

So far I have been told to have on open mind or not move to Mexico (been here two years - no problems.) Told to not groom a dog breed that is harmed by not being groomed. And told to get a different kind of dog. I give up. I will figure it out on my own.

Have you tried Senor Google yet? I think you'd be more likely to find a vet there who can recommend you to a groomer than asking the question on a web board.
