THE ART OF GROOMING A BGV
As both PBGVs and GBGVs are numerically small breeds, many professional dog groomers have never seen one and are unfamilair with how to groom a BGV to retain its rustic appearance.
Sadly, it isn't unusual for a BGV's coat to be ruined by well-intentioned groomers or by those who just don't know what they are doing.

Thankfully there are some BGV owners who, through years of experience, have become adept at knowing how to make a BGV look its best.
While the club is unable to endorse anyone, as a service to BGV owners it lists those members who will happily offer advice on grooming or even groom your BGV for you.
