How is the topic in my post, "why not to move to Mexico." I have lived here two years. The assumption I am to stupid to figure out things are different is rude. I ask for a groomer suggestion and current internet status and get "this isn't like the US or Canada." No sh$% Sherlock. If I asked where to get good bread would it be okay to answer "you need to go on a diet and not eat carbs?"

The topic was specific. Is there high speed internet? Yes. No. I don't know. In some areas. Those are good answers. Not, "you need to have an open mind." Is there a good groomer with poodles? Yes - so and so. No - I have taken mine and can't find one. Maybe as there are groomers in vet offices. I don't know. Those are good answers. Not "get use to living without those things."

And those are not my most pressing two issues right now but I don't think this is the place to discuss a crazy family member or my back pain. To dismiss my questions because you think they are trivial matters is fine. Just move on. No need to tell me my quandaries are not worthy compared to yours.

I'll suggest it again, or you can take the opportunity to berate the rest of the posters again: Have you contacted a vet in the area you're going and asked if he can recommend a groomer for your kind of dog?
You gave a good explanation of why your dog needs a groomer with experience re its breed. I agree that suggesting you get a different dog is no help at all, and your original question was entirely legitimate. I think that some of the replies were tongue in cheek.

It seems that the video portion of this thread has failed to show my tongue firmly planted in my cheek, where it sometimes finds itself in response to certain questions. So please relax and enjoy all of the comments that arise until someone finally has a specific answer for you. Otherwise, your thread would die on the vine. However, you are absolutely correct in commenting upon the unnaturalness of many breeds of dogs, and some other animals. Not always wise choices, as evidenced by the fact that feral animals quickly breed back to 'type'.

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.
I agree with Citlali. I would be very surprised if you could not find a decent groomer able to properly groom your Standard Poodles in a place such as Tequisquiapan. In our smallish town (albeit a town with lots of tourism from CDMX and a segment of the population who are expats or wealthy Mexicans with vacation homes here) there are several options. We use the groomer affiliated with our vet, but some friends use a groomer who comes to their house.

If you haven’t already done so, googling “Estética canina Tequisquiapán” does result in many suggestions. The Doggie Spa seems highly rated (for what on-line reviews are worth) and there are also mobile home visit groomers. As you mention, if they don’t normally groom the way you prefer, you can let them know what you want.

I suspect there are no Standard Poodle owners living in Tequisquiapán who are participating on the forum, hence the mixed bag of responses you have received.

There is a Poodle Mexico Facebook page that may be a better place to ask.

I too am in the planning stages. So far I receive many daily emails re Rentals, but for vacationers NOT long term!
I am also interested in internet information.

I show and breed Old English Sheepdogs. ONCE I am there I am sure I can help you locate a GOOD groomer. I'm a member of the FCM and have access to lots of information.

I'm presently in the purge and yardsale stage and planning on moving within the next 3 months. Would like info on movers too.

Actually that is quite a rude answer........... I have Old English Sheepdogs. I came down 7/8 years ago EXPLECITLY to show my dogs in Central America. I had to leave come back due to back issues demanding surgery from a previous accident years early.
I decided I was going to move back permanently years ago. And now is that time.
I have decided San Miguel de Allende is now too huge for me. I am in love with Tequisquiapan it is just the right size, and just far enough away from the City life of Queretero Mx.

Try googling Federacion Canofila Mexico, translate to english box, and then ask about Standard Poodle Grooming in Teq. I can tell you of one in SMA but thats it.
I will also be finding a good groomer to help out with my dogs.

I plan on moving in the next 2-3 months as soon as I can sell this house. Keep in touch.

NOT NECESSARILY. It depends if the dog is a show dog or not. I do agree that finding a GOOD VET .....USUALLY has a good dog grooming staff. Great place to start. Make sure you take pictures of what type of cut it is you want on your Poo. Puppy, Classic etc.

As I said in my post. Google and Contact the FCM (Federation Canofila Mexico), call and ask for help information. **Note that the FCM is in Tlalpan outside of D.F. BUT it is THE dog registration center of Mexico.....equivalent of AKC in USA or CKC in Canada.

Look under shows and maybe GO to a show there are Plenty! And you may just find a Poodle groomer who knows another one in the Teq. area.

Buen Suerte!
