Groomer Takes On 200-Pound St. Bernard

A massive St. Bernard gave a dog groomer a run for her money thanks to his thick coat and huge body. Thankfully, he ended up being a gentle giant.

Rumi, the 5-year-old St. Bernard, traveled all the way from New York State to Ontario in Canada to visit Vanessa, and the dog groomer admitted that he was the largest St. Bernard she’s ever groomed.

In the video, you can watch as Vanessa works through a wash of Rumi’s coat before moving on to the hair-drying session. She referred to his bath as the “biggest workout of the week.”

After Rumi’s hair was dry, which Vanessa admitted took “300 years” to complete, it was time to detangle and trim his fur to prevent matting and tangles. He really looked spiffy at the end!
