Some Out of Control Grooming Clients and an Unstoppable Pit Bull Mix
Season 5 | Episode 14 | Buster, Jack & Marley and Sparky
Lauren Warshaw is the proud and dedicated owner of Club Doggie Grooming Salon, a professional mobile grooming service that handles the desert cities near Palm Springs, California. As the only employee of her company, Lauren strives to provide her clients with the same service and care she would want for her own dogs. Her mobile van is state of the art and she is well versed in how to handle most of her clients’ dogs but with three big exceptions: a wild, hyperactive Great Dane named Buster, a humping, blow dryer biting Boxer mix named Jack, and an extremely fearful Aussie mix named Marley. All three dogs are unmanageable without the help of their owners. Lauren would like to groom these dogs on her own, but needs Cesar’s expertise to get in gear.
Sparky’s Way vs. Cesar’s Way
Two years ago, Michael and Jenn Broussard were looking to adopt a dog when pit bull mix Sparky showed up in a cardboard box at their front gate. Soon after, they expanded their family to include Daisy, part Doberman, and Brisco, a Great Dane mix. The Broussards have practiced Cesar’s techniques and almost mastered them with Daisy and Brisco, but Sparky is another story. When other dogs pass by their house, Sparky charges the fence. When Michael or Jenn try to call her back to the house, she ignores them. If they go after her, she runs. They can’t tell if this is a game, or if the Sparky is scared. While they would love to walk Sparky on a daily basis, she just has too much energy. Sparky is almost impossible to control on walks. Cesar comes in to give the Broussards some tips on pack leading.videos and photos from this episode on the National Geographic Channel website.
