Yes! they do but the "professional" groomer is DH. As our Wires need to have their coats hand-stripped for showing DH does the grooming he also does do some pet grooming- mostly for dogs we have bred/sold.

I have to say other....if you are counting professional grooming as the clipping/shaving side.

No, we really can't afford to take her to a professional groomer so I just bathe and brush her here.

I've never had to have my girls professionally groomed, but I do need to have Cleo bathed by a professional.

The closest are girls have gotten to being professionally groomed is having their nails clipped while they're under anaesthesia for a teeth cleaning! They're small enough that we just bathe them in our sink when needed and with their smooth coats they're very low-maintenance. We spend more time clipping their nails and brushing their teeth than anything else.

Not on a strict schedule, but yes, we found a groomer who adores Cockers in particular.
